BD Pursuit Jacket
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large
This jacket is comfy and fits me well. I am 6’2” 185lbs (I like to lift weights) and this jacket in a size L fits me well in shoulders and sleeves. It’s a bit roomy around the waist/stomach but that is nice for having the room to throw skins in. The big drop pockets do not hold either pair of my skins but the skins are secure tucked in my jacket with a waist belt from a backpack on. The material feels kinda thin and cheap but it’s held up to the abuse of rocks and tree branches. Warmth and breathability is great. I can wear this skinning/BC touring and even without pit zips I’ll never get all hot and sweaty or calmly feeling unless it’s really warm and sunny then I’ll just skin in a baselayer. I live in Colorado and with just a base layer it’s grest on warmer sunny days at the and on the cold days I’ll layer a base & mid layer underneath and be toasty warm. It’s obviously not waterproof but does a good job repeling light snow and rain. Although after a few hours in a heavy snow storm the shouldersc sleeves, & cuffs started to absorb some water. I stayed nice and warm though.
