I got this for my daughter. It fits her well and looks nice and is comfortable, and there are no obvious problems with workmanship. Seems to be a good value. The slight pattern to the color is pleasant to look at. I'll know better how it worked after she wears it awhile.

My wife loves this jacket. it comes down around her hips. Less bulk than the older down jacket it replaces. Blocks the wind.
She'll wear it regularly to Spring Lacrosse games and doing her appraisal inspections.

was not sure the size would be right but it totally was spot on. i wear it every day in the mid atlantic winter. the blue color is a nice neutral tone and goes with everything. can be worn with or without a thick fleece or sweater and still be comfortable.

Wow! Where to begin? I really love this jacket. Much more than I thought I would. The cut is very flattering. It has a nice fitted shape without being too tight in any area. The under arm area is especially nice in that it is cut close to the armpit which provides excellent range of motion for the arms. I am 5'4" or so and weigh about 165 and the large fits great. I have no problems with it fitting over my hips which is a tricky area for me to fit most of the time. The sleeves are a good length, a touch on the long side which I like as I can put my chilly hands inside if I wish, but the wristbands are tight enough to keep the sleeves over my hands otherwise. The pockets are super soft and warm and I find I can't stop sticking my hands in them. It is my first down jacket and I can't get over how comfortably warm it is. Not hot at all, more just "neutral" if that makes any sense. It is a bit poofier than the standard Patagonia brand jackets that you see all over town here, but at half the price on a coupon day, this one is a far better deal. I also like that I don't look like every other person walking down the streets of Santa Cruz. The color is also much richer than the light blue in the picture. It reminds me of a blue jay blue. I have had a few friends try it on and every one of them have melted right into it with a look of peace on their face. It really is great. Buy one. You can always return it if you don't like. But I doubt you will. Oh.. and when you do get one, be sure and air fluff it in the dryer for about 15 minutes before you wear it to fluff the down.

Really light weight and nice color. Says to stuff it in a stuff bag which was not included with the jacket so not sure whether I am missing a part or you are exoected to buy a separate stuff bag for it. Haven't had much chance to wear it yet but it is sized to fit over a light fleece or sweater so it is not too tight.
