Most Comfortable Insulated Jacket I Own!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: XL
I'm very impressed with how comfortable and breathable this insulated jacket is. The stretchy, lightweight softshell material is so cozy, and the fit is perfect for my lanky frame - long sleeves and a fairly trim, streamlined fit. The warmth is pretty comparable to other 60g synthetic fill jackets, but its breathability is really key to how comfortable this jacket is in varying temperatures. In very gusty conditions, I don't feel a draft, but I can tell that warm air is being stripped away a bit. The only real downside to this jacket is the weight - my XL weighs 19 oz. While I don't mind the weight for casual use, I would probably choose a lighter insulator for backcountry use. Overall, I think the impressive comfort is well worth the extra weight and slightly less efficient warmth in very windy conditions. Highly recommended!
