Super-light jacket

Verified Buyer Reviewed by World traveler from Kalamazoo on Wednesday, November 23, 2016
I wanted a light, compact jacket for travel. This is the lightest coat I own and it compresses well. After stuffing it into its own pocket, it's about the size of an airplane pillow. In a pack, it can be compressed even more.

It's not the warmest coat. It has been comfortable to wear in the mid-20s (-4 C) for moderate activity (walking). I don't think it would be warm enough for significantly colder weather or for just sitting around in the 20s. A windbreaker or shell over it could extend its range, particularly if it's windy.

For me, the fit was fine. I usually wear a Tall, so the long sleeves worked. I didn't find the jacket to be too roomy-- I'm 6 foot, 240 pounds, and ordered the XL. The XXL might have been a better fit for me, but this isn't too snug, even over a light fleece.

I'm not thrilled about the color, but that's a matter of taste. The price made it a good value.
