My new favorite
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Size Bought: XL
Got this to replace a puffy jacket that only lasted a couple of seasons before the fabric became noticeably pilled and worn from wearing it under a hydration pack while hiking. I have a tough time finding womens' jackets that fit me well because I have large arms, so after reading reviews, I was worried that this jacket wouldn't fit me. I can't wear thick layers underneath, but otherwise I love the fit and can wear a slim base layer or thin hoodie underneath with no issues. It fits well in the body, and the hood is large enough to stretch over a climbing helmet comfortably, but not so large that it flops around and gets in my face when I am not wearing a helmet. The fabric proved to be very durable when I wore it scrambling around Red Rocks and in a couple of limestone climbing areas and came back with no noticeable wear. It was undamaged by sharp rocks and prickly desert plants. Bomber. It's my new favorite. I love it.
