rated 4.5 of 5 stars
photo: Feathered Friends Eos Down Jacket down insulated jacket

The best warmth-to-weight ratio jacket you can buy.

Pros

  • Incredibly warm
  • Incredibly lightweight
  • Compresses to a bit smaller than a Nalgene bottle
  • Clean/smart enough looking for daily wear
  • Snug hood
  • Excellent zipper
  • Made in the USA

Cons

  • Cost, it's pricy
  • Durability tradeoff with the low weight

I originally got this jacket as a my first real down jacket. I agonized over the decision for ages before finally pulling the trigger after weighing this jacket against other offerings from Eddie Bauer, Patagonia, Rab, etc...

Ultimately what sold me was I was getting a made-in-the-USA jacket, from a small company that had amazing customer service. But seriously, there is no jacket this warm that weighs this light. If you are counting grams, this is the one to get. 

However, it isn't the most durable. Like most ultralight outdoor gear, it comes with a sacrifice and in this case, I have to say it rips a bit easy...OR....I use my stuff like a dick. I don't know, but it's covered in Tenacious Tape at this point. 

I own a lot of jackets, but I still always just throw this on. It's almost too convenient.

I can't seem to find a photo of it, but ill throw one up if I do.
