I love this jacket.The quality is great and the fit is spot on. It is surprisingly warm for a jacket of this weight.I wear it or hiking in the WNC mountains and it's also good to wear around town.It's so light it will fold up very small making it easy to stuff in a day pack.

USE SO FAR HAS BEEN FOR DUCK HUNTING AND GENERAL USE. IT IS VERY LIGHT AND THIN. I USE IT UNDER A SHELL WATERPROOF JACKET IN THE BOAT AND THEN IF THE WEATHER IS IN 40'S USE IT AS MY OUTER JACKET. AROUND TOWN I USE IT FOR GENERAL USE. THIS IS NOT A COLD WEATHER JACKET UNLESS USED AS ONE OF SEVERAL LAYERS, WHICH IS THE WAY I DRESS. THE OVERALL CONSTRUCTION, FIT (XL) AND HAND (FEEL) OF THE FABRIC IS GOOD. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED IF YOU NEEDS ARE FOR MODERATE AND NOT EXTREME TEMPS.

Love this jacket to be combined with other insulating underware in cold weather, or alone when milder. Very leight weighted and soft to wear. I like the cord-tightning inside the front pockets. Smart. No dangling strings in front to hook up or tangle.
Only negative comment must be that most sizes ordered from the US tends to be true to size in the upper part and too big for size in the bottom.
US-hunters must eat a lot....*smile*

These do run fairly generously in their sizing, especially when compared to many other Browning apparel products. I initially sized up to an XL but needed my true size which is a Large. PrimaLoft is a fantastic insulation! This jacket has no bulk - you'd wonder if it would be warm enough. However, PrimaLoft works very well. This isn't Parka-type warmth but the perfect layering piece or car jacket.

This is a nice packable jacket for early season duck hunting. The quality and sizing are excellent. I ordered a large and the chest is 44 inches and the sleeve length is 34 inches. As stated this is a light weight jacket and will not be useful for late season northern duck hunting.

I exchanged my Medium for a Large. The large fits my 42R chest with room for 3 to 4 layers.
The new size is just a thin as the previous jacket. I have another Primaloft jacket and it's much thicker (really warm too). This jacket is Primaloft Sport so this may be the difference. This jacket _is_ warm but probably best used for spring, summer, fall here (Alaska). The positive side of being thin is it packs into a pretty small, light weight package. It fits into the chest pocket but I can get it into a smaller stuff sack if I need to.
The Browning garment tags label this as a liner jacket so I retract my criticism of STP for mis-describing the jacket. It still doesn't 'mate' with my Browning shell so it's not a system liner, just a jacket for layering.
All in all, a very light weight jacket I'll use when I need extra insulation and I have to pack/carry it around.

This jacket is very lightweight and thin. Maybe too thin. Primaloft is warm but I'm not sure this would be good for temps. much below 20 degrees F. even under a shell.
Based on the title and description, I purchased this as a liner for my Browning XPO Big Game Pre-Vent X-Change shell. This is incompatible as a liner jacket for that shell. There are no loops to attach and hold the sleeves to the shell and the coil zipper is incompatible with the toothed zipper on my shell.
Sizing is inconsistent with my Browning shell. My shell is a Men's Medium and I have plenty of room for three shirt layers and a fleece or insulated vest.. This liner in Medium is a little snug with more than two layers. I wear a size 42 suit and normally buy Large shirts/jackets.
It's a nice, light jacket but it's not what I thought it was based on STP's description.
