Summary

Great jacket. Super lightweight and packs down very small. It layers extremely well under a shell for skiing or hiking. The stretch is extremely underrated; the entire jacket really moves with you. Not warm enough below 25 degrees when not active.

Pros

  • STRETCH!
  • Lightweight
  • Layers well

Cons

  • Not super warm, but great as layering piece
  • Down seems to be shifting a little

Great jacket. I'm 5 foot 6 and 165 lbs, I wear a medium. The jacket is just the right size to be able to wear a fleece or sweatshirt underneath the jacket. Sleeves are a little long, but not too long.

The jacket stretches much more than I anticipated. It has never hindered my movement during skiing or hiking. The jacket has cinch cords at the bottom to seal in the heat. Overall warm down to 25 degrees. 

I wear it under a shell whenever rain or snow is possible, so I am not sure about how well its DWR coating would hold up.

The Jacket breathes pretty well, although in general down breathes slightly less than quality synthetic insulation.

This jacket has huuge pockets. Can easily stuff a whole fleece or several snacks in the hand pockets.

The Jacket overall is very well made. I haven't seen any feathers poke through the face fabric.
