Patagonia Micro Puff Jacket
Price Paid: $120
I love this coat. I wear it in conjunction with the Micro Puff Pants. It is warm enough for summer nights in the mountains but barely weighs anything. It has kept me warm into the teens, stuffs down to nothing, and takes up almost no space in my pack. I also like the trim athletic fit.
Wish they had offered the hoody at the time I bought this one (mine is about five years old). Only downside is that is not fire proof (camp-fire in the wind). Patches add character right?
