I wore this over the Arcteryx rho LT in the adirondacks at about zero degrees on a summit. I felt no wind. Obviously doesn’t pack down well but I didn’t think it took up too much space either.
Definitely the “baggiest fit” the company makes but at the same time it didn’t seem too baggy. It’s more like a tailored looseness which is great for layering. That being said, it was so impervious to snow and wind that it required no insulation standing around a summit for 30 minutes with just a Rho Lt under it.
I had to take it off descending (little to no wind) because even with pit zips open I was overheating.
Because I run so warm I will likely not take it hiking again. Definitely something for only the most extreme conditions.
