Summary

Warm, lightweight jacket worth the price (especially if you can get it at a discount). However, the shell is made of pretty thin material and is prone to tearing, so care must be taken when wearing this jacket off-trail.

Pros

  • Warm
  • Nice hood

Cons

  • Thin outer shell

wore it recently on a back-country snowshoeing trip and near the end of the hike snagged the coat on a branch, tearing a two-inch long hole in the shoulder. Luckily, I patched it soon afterwards, but realized this jacket is better suited for wearing around town (probably what it was designed for anyways) or on light hikes than in the backcountry.

I would recommend it overall though.
