Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it used
Price Paid: $80


This is an older jacket I just picked up very lightly used from the original owner. I will update this review once I can get an honest cold weather review.


  • Lightweight
  • Packable
  • Fabric reinforcements


  • None yet

This is my first high quality down jacket as the lightweight / ultralight bug has bitten me, though as the original owner informed me that this no longer qualifies as ultralight as age plays a big role in such things. This seems to be a scarce jacket online as there are very few reviews and little real world chatter. 


Used is a good way to go. Please keep us updated.

Good luck with the new/old jacket, McBlaster. Montbell makes some good insulation. Let us know how yours works out.
