Recent Synthetic Insulated Jacket Reviews

Arc'teryx Nuclei AR Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Light, compressible, highly water resistant, completely windproof with tape sealed seams. It's also a very good length for my long torso. I recently did a review for the toughest synthetic down jacket you can buy. The Carinthia Alpine jacket. It has reinforced elbow pads and shoulder pads. However it is a little short for me and it is very heavy (940gm!). Both of these problems are solved by Arc'teryx Nuclei AR Jacket. It weighs in at 450gm — less than half the weight. And it fits me perfectly… Full review

Black Diamond Men's Stance Belay Parka

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This belay parka is very warm, fit is a little snug. Quality of the stitching is good and the feel is quite good. The hood is large and very well insulated. It is as described a good belay parka. I am 6'2" 180 lbs and I ordered the XL. This size works very well over my soft shell jacket. A large would have been snug in the shoulders. Zipper is thick and does not snag while zipping even with heavy gloves on. It is a little on the heavy side, but that is the trade off for synthetic parkas. Very warm… Full review

Black Diamond Men's Access Hybrid Hoody

rated 5 of 5 stars An insulated jacket with a good amount of breathability and stretch for cold weather climbing. After years of discomfort while cold weather climbing, I made it a priority to find a jacket better suited for cold weather. My previous solution was to climb in either a softshell jacket or a down jacket. The softshell was stretchy and breathable, but I’d be cold in 50 degree or colder weather. The down jacket was warmer but didn’t stretch and I was always afraid I would tear the shell material. So… Full review

REI Women's Revelcloud Hoodie Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I bought this jacket as an impulse buy at REI with my 20% off outlet coupon. The jacket was already marked down due to not a popular color? (This color purple was the only color marked down and there were a ton of them) The rest were $129. So with coupon I paid $47.93. What a deal I couldn't pass it up! I learned to live with the bright odd color purple. It is super lightweight and crazy warm! Packs into side pocket Crazy color, but great buy! As you see above the reason I bought the jacket. I… Full review

Patagonia Men's Nano Puff Hoody

rated 5 of 5 stars This jacket has been a great layer over t-shirts in the cool spring evenings, under a shell in the fall, or skiing on blue bird days when a ski jacket is just too much. I've had my Nano Puff for three years now and it's held up great! From climbing all around the PNW, to backpacking in Europe, to cold nights after surfing. Definitely recommend! Fits true to size: I'm a fairly small guy, 5'9", 150 lbs, lean climber body, and the small is just right. The shoulders can be a bit tight so going a size… Full review

Columbia Men's Diamond 890 TurboDown Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Warm, lightweight jacket that is great for both city and outdoor use. This is a great down jacket. A combination of warmth and breathability are what I look for because getting uncomfortably sweaty whilst hiking is never a good experience. The fit of the jacket is snug, but still able to accommodate extra layers underneath if they are needed. A good hood also compliments the fit, with it turning with your head without the need for cords.  As with most down jackets it is not great in the rain. Saying… Full review

Haglofs Barrier Pro II Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight and packable synthetic jacket that is warm for its weight. This jacket weighs just 323 grams (11.4oz). It is obviously not for very cold weather, but it is warm for its weight. On one occasion I was walking in a bitingly cold gale force wind. Where I live the temperature does not go below freezing even in winter, but with windchill taken into account it must have been close to freezing on that occasion. It was certainly cold enough to make me put on my gloves. Yet I felt neither the… Full review

Arc'teryx Men's Atom SL Hoody

rated 5 of 5 stars Total agreement, guys. I bought the Carbon Copy color. I have the LT as well, also beloved. This extremely well thought out jacket is as light as a hummingbird's feather. The hood with toggle cord in the rear tightens down perfectly to shield your face with the lower face and throat lovingly protected as well by the full zip front. The tailored cuffs fit so well, great to have nothing to fasten there. The lightest weight insulation on the front and back is nearly imperceptible, but clearly does… Full review

Patagonia Men's DAS Parka

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very warm and comfortable. This synthetic coat makes winter easier. Hood and closures aren't perfect. I bought this 2015 model coat to wear so I could stay warm in camp and trailhead without thinking too much about layering and moisture control in temps around and below freezing. I'd looked into a couple of down parkas but didn't go with them due to the price, and I'm glad I didn't. The DAS Parka is not perfect but it performs its main function of keeping me warm very well. A huge bonus I hadn't… Full review
