Why We Built The Synthetic Insulated Jacket

If there's one thing every avid outdoor enthusiast has hanging in their gear closet, it's a dependable layering piece like the Backcountry Synthetic Jacket. This one draws inspiration from our previous hybrid version, now with more insulation around the torso to keep you warm, but still body-mapped for breathability. Clean lines make a minimalist appearance if you're simply wearing it around town, while the slim fit slides right under a shell if you're out in stormy weather.

  • An insulated midlayer for cool-weather pursuits
  • Durable face fabric sheds light dirt and moisture
  • Synthetic insulation retains heat-trapping loft if wet
  • Lighter insulation placed in key spots for breathable comfort
  • Fitted cuffs and adjustable waist seal out chilly weather
  • Slim fit layers well beneath your waterproof shell
  • Runs small

Very strange fit

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M & L

I'm a slim medium and ordered this both in medium and large based on reviews indicating it runs small. The medium length was good all around, the chest fit pretty well (maybe a little slimmer than typical medium), but the armpit was really tight and yet the sleeves were quite wide/baggy. The large was definitely too big and long except the armpit, which strangely was uncomfortably tight despite the rest of the jacket being way too big. Overall it seems like this jacket has a disproportionate cut/fit. I returned both. The regular price is also ridiculously high for the fairly basic jacket this is -- I got it on flash sale for $80 and, strange fit aside, I really couldn't justify paying anymore than $125 for it. I suspect Backcountry brand apparel might be intentionally way overpriced so they can do frequent "sales". Questionable quality and pricing = less inclined to consider Backcountry brand apparel in the future.

Pretty good

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Xxl

First, the jacket runs small. I'm 6ft 2in and 205lb and the xxl is a slim but decent fit. Any bigger than me and you're probably not going to fit in this jacket.

Overall, the materials and durability feel good. I like the 40g on the back and underarms...a better compromise Tha. The arcteryx or patagonia version. However, the fabric isn't near as soft or packable as the patty nano air, but I like the hood better than the nano air or proton. However, this jacket is NOT very stretchy...will make ice climbing a bit restrictive compared to its competition.

I'm a climber and mountaineer and will be using this jacket often. I got it here on sale for $99 and that is am excellent deal! Ant more than $150 and I'd say pony up for the patagonia nano air or arcteryx proton/atom. But, for $99 I have a sweet, comfy jacket who's minor downfalls compared to pricier competition can be ignored. Hoping to put it thru the ringer and not care how badly I destroy it along the way....which probably means this is the right jacket for me

Nice Jacket, Runs Small

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XXL

I ordered this for my husband who fits into an XXL in most brands, including Patagonia. But it definitely fit like an XL. It's too bad, because it's a really nice jacket, but we're sending it back and it's not made in a larger size.

Everyday Wear

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

This is the one jacket I reach for no matter what the weather man says. Warm enough for those chilly morning that make you thankful for heated seat. Tough enough to take a beating while out and about. But most of all it is sleek and comfortable to pair with just about anything in your closet, or maybe laundry basket.
