Reviews

Nice jacket, solid construction, good fill on the down.

Pros

  • Down-tek treated down
  • Light
  • Warm

Cons

  • Water resistant, not proof
  • Maybe needs more pockets?

Got mine on sale on a Black Friday doorbuster so the price can't be beat. Large inside vest pocket for self packing is nice for keeping largish items warm — I like to go out and get a burger at Five Guys when walking my dog and then take it home for dinner (dog and burger).

Also has a drawstring to keep air seal around waist/hips. I could quibble about lack of a drawstring on the hood, but many jacket doesn't have that either.

Haven't yet taken it up hiking in the mountains but this with a fleece shirt and a waterproof rain shell jacket feels like it will keep me comfortable down to under 20 degrees. It's too warm when active at 40-45+, but you can always walk around unzipped (joke intended).

It does the job for a good price with a good fit. Solid construction feels like it is going to last. I'm satisfied.
