As clear as the weather on summit day.
There isn't a cloud between you and the summit, and you can't help but wonder how cold tomorrow's alpine start will feel. At least you'll have the Blue Yak Men's Vivid WV Jacket warming you before the sun pushes past the horizon. This performance-driven insulator uses an innovative combination of durable, weather-protective Cordura fabric and stretchy inserts that ensure full mobility as your headlamp guides you up trails. Body-mapped insulation helps make sure your armpits aren't super hot while your shoulders shiver. When the sun finally starts to warm you up, the Vivid packs inside its own internal pocket for compact storage in your full summit bag.

- Q & A
Nice jacket, Sizes Run extremely Small.
- Size Bought: xl
I was excited about this jacket because I liked the overall look. the jacket runs extremely small compare to other comparable brands. The only other downside to the jacket, would be the design of the pockets. they are located high in the chest area. now I will say, that I know this is a technical jacket, so it might be better located for ice clymbing, but for daily wear, I felt weird looking for a place to put my hands. My overall impression of the jacket was that it's really well made. Just wish it fit. Btw, I ordered an XL I'm 6' tall 220, and I felt like Chris Farley in Tommy Boy with the jacket on.
