User Review: Mountain Hardwear Men's Compressor PL Jacket
Fill: Primaloft 1
Price Paid: $170
I'm 6'2" 175 lbs, with long-ish arms. The fit on the medium is pretty "spot-on" for my stature. It actually fits so well that sometimes I feel more like I'm wearing a sweater, rather than a jacket. The Compressor has proven to be exactly what I needed in an insulation layer. A snug fitting, exceptionally warm, virtually windproof, packable jacket.
As mentioned in other reviews, the use of a baselayer in conjunction with a non-breathable insulated jacket is a winning combination. My Swobo (shameless product plug) longsleeve wool jersey has been the perfect compliment to the Compressor's insulating properties.
I checked out, and tried on just about every other lightweight synthetic insulated jacket in it's class... Needless to say, I ended up with the Compressor. This is my first piece of Mountain Hardwear. I'm very happy with the quality of stitching and the general construction of this jacket. I'm confident, that with proper care, this jacket will be my cold weather companion for many years to come.
