I purchased this Moonstone Jacket (in brown) several years ago. It is an absolutely wonderful garment ... light, windproof.. washes wonderfully. it has seen me through many treks in all types of wind & weather.... can be worn underneath any other outerwear, trekking, mountaineering. I also wear it as casual jacket... it always looks good...... anywhere.
I have searched in vain to find another one but I have been unable to locate this product anywhere.. Does anybody know where I could find it?

Fabric: High Tenacity Illusion fabric??
Fill: Polyester Microfiber
Price Paid: $60-150
I thought at 60 dollars this would be a fine alternative to a more expensive Puffball. I regret my decision.
I am mostly happy with the jacket. It has performed well as a light but warm layer. The nagging problem is what happens to anything I put in the right pocket--it falls out. While I understand the left pocket is possibly designed differently for stuffing capacity, the right pocket seems perfectly designed for losing things. Anything I have put in the pocket without closing the zipper falls out sooner or later.
At first discussing the problem via their web page, I was led to believe it was a sewing problem. However, after sending the jacket to Moonstone, they went out on the floor and compared them to other Cirrus's. They then informed me that that is how they are made and I had two choices.
1) give me $80 credit toward other Moonstone products
2) they would return the jacket to me with no changes, I could do as I wish with it
Customer Service was polite, but overall it was a confusing and dissatisfying experience. All said, I plan to do the seam work myself and have a usable product, however, next time I'll get a Puffball.

This is a great jacket. I've had it for a few years now and wear it about 200 days a year. It's light, warm (not as warm as a down jacket), and compresses well. I don't get the armpit zippers in an insulating jacket. I put it on because I am cold. Would rather not have them and save a few ounces. Otherwise this jacket is pure function. Not sure what the other reviewer was talking about stuff falling out of pockets. Maybe if you hang upside down. I put my keys and wallet in them all the time, without any spills while bending down or to side.

If you ever have a chance to buy a Cirrus that fits, do so and don't think twice. I have had two, both of which were stolen, and this is bar none the best insulating layer one oculd buy. Fleece tends to be a terrible wind stopper by nature but with the Cirrus you get insulation and a wind stopper. Many times I've been on the mountain with nothing but Capilene and my Moonstone, and every time I've been warm. Nothing but good can come from purchasing a Moonstone Cirrus.

This jacket is a keeper. I backpack all winter and this is the perfect jacket, not only is it extremely warm, lightweight, and windproof, its best feature are the underarm zippers. Underarm zippers are a godsend when it starts to get a little warm while trekking. The most practical jacket I ever bought, period.
