Brooks Range Down Sweater Hoodie Jacket - 850 Fill Power (For Men and Women)
Closeouts. Brooks Range's down sweater hoodie jacket is the perfect feather-weight jacket or layer to keep you warm in frigid winter temps thanks to its incredibly lightweight Pertex® Quantum ripstop fabric and the finest European goose down available.
Reviewed by apctjb from WA on Tuesday, April 16, 2013Outstanding jacket for the price. Amazingly light and warm.
Reviewed by OlTrailDog from Near Bozeman, MT on Saturday, April 13, 2013I purchased this down sweater/jacket as a backpacking insulation layer. That is to say, it was purchased to wear as an axillary sleeping layer, for those frosty mornings around camp, and for warmth under a rain shell when it comes down to grappling with the elements when things turn epic. I consider it to be well worth the $85. I previously had purchased a Patagonia highly reviewed model earlier this winter from another site the bargain price of $99. I was so disappointed in the thin non-weather proof material and thin insulation that promptly I sent it back. The Brooks Range was less expensive, has the Pertex shell, has a tougher shell material, and I like the fleece lined collar. The hood snugs up nice with the adjustments. I usually purchase a L, but the XL was only available and at 6', 165lbs with long arms and broad shoulders I am happy with the fit. It stuffs up compact enough for backpacking and the Pertex Quantum was an extra weather resistant blessing. I have an idea I will be grabbing it for the winter "before bedtime take the dogs out" walks too.

The medium jacket for 39-41 inch chest is tighter than should be, disappointed. Other than that, it is a nice warm jacket.
