I will use this as a bridge between my long, hooded very warm coat and a winter dress coat. This is nice enough to wear to work, but a little short for most of my outfits. The suprise was a pocket on the inside back that can contain the whole jacket - yes, it's that light. You can stuff the whole jacket into this pocket and it comes out in the shape of a neck pillow. Seems like that would be great for air travel

This is a wonderful, lightweight but warm jacket. We don't have extremely cold temps, so I can't speak to how warm it is when the weather is very cold. I love its packability as it scrunches into a very small space. I mostly use it for walking along the Chesapeake and adjoining rivers, or for camping and it is warm, and easily goes over a sweater or fleece. The sleeves may seem long to some, but they are perfect for me. I love the jacket!I might even use it for kayaking in cold weather...

I haven't worn this jacket yet, but I can tell that it will be very warm. I ordered my usual size, and it was slightly large, but I imagine if I want to wear a fleece underneath it will then be perfect. My only regret is that the hood does not come off.

I've been looking for the perfect Primaloft coat for a while now, and the price was really low on this coat. The fit was fine but the coat looks a little blah. I think I'm used to a coat with more technical features, but you can't get one for this price! I ordered the lime color but it's more of a muted soft sage that looked really bad on me. It would look good on someone with medium or darker skin.

I ended up returning this jacket only because of the color. The only color in my size was the dark blue, which is a great color, but I always wear dark blue jeans so I'd look like a Smurf! If it was any other color I probably would have gotten six! I love the sort of sleeve thing with thumb hole that extends out of each sleeve. That should be included in all jackets! The zipper and button front gives it some style not typically found in this type of jacket. The hood is permanently attached, which is the only negative (other than color) that I found.

This is a terrific, warm, stylish coat. I got an XS, though usually I'm a small, because I wanted a trim down. It's still fairly roomy, though I'm 5'4 and 127lbs. I can easily wear a fleece under it. When I extend my arms with thumbs through the built in thumb loop it's pretty tight. I worry the thumb loop stitching won't hold up, so I won't use it while snowboarding or anything too active. I live in Bethel, AK summer/fall, and Missoula, Mt winter/spring and I think this will be sufficiently warm for both places.

Loved the teal color and the jacket is exceptionally soft and cozy, but the hood is permanently attached and has no way to roll and stow it. Don't like a hood in the way when I'm skiing...so I returned it.
