The fit & style of this jacket was awesome. I love that it's fully reversible. The sleeve length was perfect for me (my arms are on the long side). The only color available in my size was the bright orange, but I thought I'd give it a try. It is similar to Blaze Orange. When i ordered it, I thought that while orange isn't my favorite color, a coral jacket could be ok. Well it isn't coral--it's almost neon. The reversible gray side is so plain (no embroidery like the orange side). So as much as I wanted to like it, it's going back.

When the jacket arrived I was so excited! It was nicer than I expected. From other reviews I was wrooied the sleeves would be too long. Not the case. I was so dissapointed that I had to return the jacket, though. I bought it for a ski jacket and belay jacket. It would work well except it was too tight for layering. I could easily wear it for casual wear, but with technical clothing it didn't work. I am pretty true to a standard 4/6 size but need a larger size for my purposes. If you are normally a 2/4, get the small, not XS.

Lot's of review comments on the sleeve length: They are long-ish, but they are great for my 5'9" frame. Also, I will use this jacket for skiing and I really like that the sleeve still covers my wrist when my arm is bent as it will be when holding and using a ski pole. Color and embroidery are great, although I doubt I will wear the solid gray reversed side. Overall sizing: I'm tall with long limbs and normally a size 6. I ordered the medium jacket and it fits well: shaped through the torso for feminine curves and enough room for layering. Overall length covers upper hip; overall weight is very light, but I'm sure the high-tech lining and insulation will keep me toasty!
This is a stand alone reversable insulated jacket.

It is a stand alone jacket. Unless you order one size up, I wouldn't even consider wearing a thick fleece top under this jacket. This being said, I do find the jacket to be surprisingly warm.

The Mountain Hardwear Pegasus shell--also sold by Sierra Trading Post, fits perfectly on top.

No. The zipper type and front flap design around the zipper of this jacket will not allow a zip-in lining to be added. There are also no sleeve tabs/buttons to allow the zip-in sleeves to be held in place. This is a stand alone style jacket. If you want to layer, just order your normal size. Mountain Hardware medium runs slightly larger to me than a medium in other brands like NF or EB outdoor. In fact, most other brand mediums are always listed a size range of 4-6 while Mountain Hardware's medium is listed as a size 8-10. Hope this helps.

I would say it is a stand alone jacket.....it is reversible tough.....the other side is just light & dark gray. So you can get 2 different looks in 1 jackey!!

We do not have a temperature rating for this item. But, it is insulated with Primaloft. Primaloft is a micro fibrous polyester insulation so fine that in equal weights and densities it is as warm as down, and warmer than other synthetics. In wet conditions it remains lighter and surpasses any other synthetic or natural insulation.
