Room to improve
Let me start off by saying, this is an excellent casual jacket. It's really nice for tooting around town, walking the doggo, or running errands. This is stylish and it has great pockets for stashing treats or car keys. I picked up the Navy color and it's on the darker side, which is totally my jam! The sleeves are also a little short on this, making it fit a little weird, but that's my only issues on the cut. I really like the two vents on the chest near the armpits. It's nice to have the option to dump heat if things get a little bit warmer than expected.
It would also be an OK jacket for base camp adventures, but I wouldn't necessarily pack this for a backpacking adventure. It's a little on the heavier side, and it doesn't compress down for convenient packing, and it's a bit heavier.
Overall, satisfied it's in my quiver of jacket options, I just wish there were a few more features to live up to the backcountry name. Would love to see a couple things tweaked so that it would be my go-to option each and every time!
