My wife loves this jacket!
- Not down
- Still warm
- Still packable
- Elastic cuffs on the sleeves
So in my review of the Mountain Hardwear Zonal Jacket, I mentioned that my wife was allergic to down, but I will mention it again just in case. My wife can't wear down, so I can't either. And this for her, amongst all the alternative jackets we tried, was the best.
Great fit, fantastic hood! And still very warm and packable. The only quarrel I have with it is the elastic cuffs, but she doesn't mind. Great layered under a soft-shell, but it is still tough enough to stand alone. I really like that (unlike the men's version) it is form fitting! It makes her hourglass shape still look great! Despite layering up like the Marshmallow man from Ghostbusters.
As a stand alone, my wife said she can get down to around 30°F, which is good for her because she is a wuss.
