I got this jacket for the winter. I live in the Sierras and while it is not as cold as Colorado, it can get pretty nippy on the ski hill. This jacket is better than my big puffy down jacket for warmth. I use it with a cashmere sweater, and it is super warm on all but the coldest days (like 0 degrees F). It is very light. The only dis, is that it is not waterproof, but it is so thin that you could put a shell over it and no be restricted in your movements.

Was recently out on a week-long winter summiting outing in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Frigid temperatures and intense winds. This jacket proved to be a vital layering component for the extreme conditions, particularly as a third layer below my Marmot Zion hardshell when I was on a descent towards dusk. Also served me well immediately after an outing while driving and needed to instantly remain warm. Great product at a low price.

I shopped around for a long time for a puffa that wasn't so puffy. This is trim, warm, lacks those Michelin Tire Man ribs and has a lined collar and pockets which I love. Perfect except maybe for the lack of a stuff sack. But then it is a little heavier than other Primaloft jackets, and that I like.
