Awesome gear!

Warm and lightweight. Big hood, deep pockets and soft around the chin when zipped up!

Warm and Comfortable Belay Jacket

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

If you are climbing in under 30F weather regularly this is the jacket for you. It is insanely warm. To warm for anything by above freezing. 5’3 130 lbs and size small fit great.

Love this jacket!

This is one of the warmest and coziest jackets ever. The hood fits over a helmet and cinches down to keep the snow and wind out.

I absolutely love this jacket!! It is so incredibly warm and comfortable, while still being lightweight enough to not feel like you can't move at all. Easily handling -10F temps, the hood also is nice and big with a wonderfully soft lining. The length is perfect as it covers your hips without making you feel trapped at any point - super easy to move around in without letting any cold air escape up the sides. My only comment is that I wish the front pockets (which are huge by the way!!!) were positioned just a little bit higher - I sometimes find myself having to reach down just a bit to fish out things that may have worked their way to the bottom. Regardless, I still absolutely love it and would highly recommend!!

Fabulous warmth

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is my jacket that will keep me warm as I climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. It fits and feels amazing, it is super light weight, it fits under my rain jacket and it is WARM!

The jacket I thought I would never get

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I sent a jacket back in January for a credit, it took 4 months to get my new jacket so I haven't worn it as it is now too hot to wear. The worst customer service I have ever had with an outdoor product company. The new jacket seems okay. It wasn't exactly what I wanted to replace my other jacket with, but the closest to it available and I couldn't get answers to questions I had about the OR products available. It was so frustrating. Sad because you make quality products.

Love but poor sizing

I first tried this is XS and loved it so much but was slightly snug around my hips so sized up to S. The S was so huge it looked like a men's coat. Sleeves too long, gaping in arm pits. Wide and bulky all over. It's so strange that the two sizes are THAT different. I loved everything about this coat and really wanted to keep it. Very warm Not to swooshy and loud Lots of pockets Big hood Good length mid to low butt Fix your sizing!!! Many have mentioned the hugeness.

The warmest coat I have ever owned.

I've owned a lot of coats and been a lot of places. This is the warmest coat that I have ever owned. We like to go to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in the winter and this coat keeps me WARM! It also isn't too hot on warmer days. It's just the perfect coat. It cinches in all the write places to help keep air out, the hood fits over a helmet, the hood also has a nice interior cinch that creates a nice seal around your face which was a nice surprise feature. I've worm in it whipping cold winds with a simple wool base layer and have remained very warm. Used for snowboarding, XC Skiing (on cold days) and hiking. I'm so in love, I own 2.

Solid Coat and Long Enough!

I am a big fan of this coat -- it works well and the outer material is a bit sturdier than some of my other OR down coats. I bought this coat in a medium so that it would be a good mid-layer in very cold conditions, and a good standalone coat when it is just cold -- the size works well in both applications. For reference I am 5'9'' - typically I wear a woman's medium top and around a 6 in pants. I love the fact that it is long enough to cover my butt and a good portion of my thigh! Paired with a pair of insulated knee-high muck boots this coat made it fun to be outside even in negative degree weather -- I live in northwestern Montana about 80 miles away from the Canadian Boarder, so -30 degree weather is pretty normal. I particularly love the drawstring at the bottom of the coat -- which helps immensely in keeping a warm bubble around you body. Also pockets! There are two large inside pockets that can easily fit a large water bottle -- again super useful in very cold conditions when you need to keep your water from freezing.
