Summary

This jacket works well as a stand-alone jacket in cool weather, and as a layer when the weather gets frigid. I have enjoyed how small it packs up for a synthetic, it holds up in wet weather, and is incredibly warm for how light it is (for a synthetic). It is perfect for any kind of travel and is nice to whip out during a cold belay.

Pros

  • Warmth even when damp
  • Comfort
  • Fit
  • Packable

Cons

  • Lightweight fabric does wear out, eventually

I acquired this jacket while working as a kayak guide. When working in the cool, rainy climate of Valdez, AK, it was nice to be able to pull this jacket out at camp and not worry about how damp the conditions were.

Since I've moved on to other employment now, the jacket has followed me and performed well in most conditions.  It has come with me on all of my travels, works well for cool weather trips, and is perfect for exposed, cool belays.  Unless it is really cold I wouldn't wear it for very active pursuits (like cross country skiing) because you may overheat, but it is great as a camp jacket! It is also attractively styled so it can be worn in civilization too.   

The weather resistance has eventually worn out, and the lightweight fabric is starting to wear through, but this is through heavy use and not necessarily as a result of poor construction (I have worn it most days for four years through all sorts of adventures). Though it's unfortunate that this one will wear out, when it dies, I plan to replace it with another.
