Warm, Toasty and feature rich!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
Light fabric, high loft down, Alpine fit hood, and incredibly warm at an unbelievable price point, what's not to like. I wore this at the Ouray Ice Festival last year while I was hanging around in the vendor area and was comfortable all day, even found myself venting it a bit at times in 14 degree weather. Also the DriLite outer fabric has been fairly impervious to snow and light rain. Unless your in a prolonged and seriously wet conditions you don't have to worry about it wetting out. It also boasts great packability. It has proven to be an extremely versatile peace in the sense that its great jacket for kicking around town if you live in cold climates but really excels in the mountains if you're out there getting after it! Have used it as belay jacket while ice climbing as it has a double sided zipper and its been perfect. The adjustable hem on the hood as well waist work great and keep drafts out. The adjustable velcro cuffs work great and have some elasticity to work seamlessly with the gloves of your choice. There is really nothing to fault here.
