Love this jacket! My gearhead recommended it and so glad she did. It fits well and is sporty, yet stylish. Can wear it in the backcountry or to the office. It's great at protecting against light rain (haven't tried it in heavy rain). It's warm and not bulky. I love all the zipper pockets. All around great jacket, I wear it everywhere for everything and never want to take it off!

Great Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

I bought this jacket for inbounds and backcountry skiing, and have used it for ice climbing as well. So far, it has been great. I has enough lining to keep me warm at the resort and for the downhill ski in the backcountry. The fabric is super breathable, so I don't overheat on uphills. My partners love the color because it is bright and visible, even in low light. It layers well for colder days at the resort. The hood fits over my helmet, for some extra warmth and waterproofing. No complaints!

Everyday (& Everywhere) Jacket

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Small

I've worn this jacket nearly every single day since I got it. I ordered a small and still have room underneath for a fleece and my rain shell on top, but it fits extremely well and never has hindered movement. Had to take it through an unexpected 4' deep pothole of water in a canyon in near freezing temps, but with a dry fleece still kept me decently warm the last few miles all things considered. Ended up pretty dirty, but threw it through the wash (like they recommend) and washed up like new. No snags or tears or any sign of wear, and I wear this thing to town, in the field, through canyons, etc. We'll see how it does down the road, but I'm sure it will stand up just fine.

Also, a day hasn't passed where someone (or multiple people) hasn't complimented it. The blue color is more like a deep teal, which is actually really pretty. This is the best kind of picture I have of it which is closer to the true color. Anyway, love this jacket. Has now become a wardrobe staple.

Everyday (& Everywhere) Jacket

Great active jacket

    I was lucky to get this jacket on sale in Bondi Blue and absolutely love it. Right now I wear it every time I go for a bike ride, a brisk walk around the city and even skiing with a waterproof shell over it. The breathability keeps me comfortable to power on with my workout while the light rain protection is ideal for Seattle showers. I would not recommend this jacket for super wet conditions unless wearing it under a waterproof shell. I am 5'2" and 140lbs with an athletic build, I bought a small and there's plenty of room for a fleece layer underneath. I own an XS in the non-hooded version that is a much snugger fit (no room for a mid-layer), but also looks great.

    Awesome Jacket!

      This jacket is wonderful! I do wish I would have gotten a bigger size so I could layer under it more. I am 5'4 and 108 lbs and I ordered an XS and it fits me perfectly but is too snug to layer under it on really cold days.

      I wear this jacket when i'm climbing and the material is awesome it gets beat up a lot while going up the rock and it still doesn't have a snag or a rip or tear or anything and still looks brand new!
