Super light, super warm, super awesome.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Super warm

Cons

  • I don't see any.

I'm 5'7" 140 lbs. Small is a snug fit, medium leaves me room to layer in super cold weather.

I've had this for two winters now. I wear this jacket every day in the bitter Canadian cold. Man, I'm laughing at everybody else in those bulky/expensive Canada Goose jackets. I'm thoroughly impressed with the Primaloft insulation, pound/pound it is the warmest jacket I own. 

Thunder Bay, Ontario, is really cold in the winter, with my Patagonia R3 sweater (300wt fleece) underneath, -40s were no problem at all. Helmet fits nicely when snowboarding.

In a downpour it can also hold its own. The shell isn't completely waterproof, and it gets a bit heavy when it soaks through, but you never really feel wet at all. It dries fast as well.

Overall highly recommended to everyone.

Right on. I was wondering how this jacket performed. And I'm a BIG fan of Sherpa Adventure Gear. They are truly changing lives in the local Sherpa communities. Good review.

Primaloft is truly a game changer. More and more often I'm carrying a down jacket and wearing my primaloft one.
