Pretty darn cool jacket. Nice mid layer, or can be a solo layer on mild days. Great color selections, cool fabrics, good slim fit. This is a must for any fast moving hiker/climber.


  • Great color combinations
  • Nice, stretchy sleeves and body
  • Great looks, great updated style


  • Could be a tad warmer
  • Would like to see a bit tougher fabric used on arms

I love this jacket. It is well made, great color options, stretches, and is pretty warm for what it is. There is no insulation in sleeves, which is pretty nice when you don't want a full on puffy. It works really well on mildly chilly days under a shell. I layer it under a full on puffy for real warmth if needed.

So far the materials have held up pretty well to a decent amount of use. The insulation around the neck area is actually quite useful, since the sleeves lack feathers. This thing isn't gonna keep you from freezing at lower temps or high winds, but for a nice, sleek, mildly puffy midlayer...this thing pretty much rocks.

Did I mention it looks bad ass?  :)
