- Q & A
Beast of a jacket
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: XXL
I own a lot of jackets, dozens. This is my go to down when I'm somewhere that I might snag one of the more delicate jackets. This was toasty in 10 degree NYC weather. The outside of this feels like it could take a bullet it's so thick. This comes at a cost though, this weighs 4.2 lbs which is a ton for a jacket. My other 800+ fill down jackets maybe weight 1 lbs. The faux fur hood is very warm and the fur acts almost like a neck gaiter and ear muffs when the jackets zipped up but the hoods off. I was hesitant spending the money on this, I have other TNF jackets like this that were cheaper, there's a noticeable improvement in quality and attention to detail across the board in the Cryos line. What's difficult is packing this, it doesn't compress, it almost needs its own suitcase just to travel with it.
