Closeouts. Mountain Hardwear's Kelvinator down jacket has 650 fill power goose down insulation that seals in heat when you're playing in the mountains or hanging out at camp, and packs down small and light when you're on the trail.

This well made mid weight down jacket is still being sold on many other web sites for $190 to $270. I have not yet worn this jacket in seriously cold weather in the Sierras. I purchased it as a compressible mid layer that I could easily store in a day pack or a back pack in the event that I needed an additional insulating layer under a hard shell jacket. My jacket even came with its own stuff sack. Usual MH fit and finish. I ordered XXL (6ft 3in, 230 lbs) and the jacket has enough room in the shoulders girth and sleeves for me. I don't like tight fitting jackets. If you feel the same way, order one size up. You will not find a better mid weight down jacket for $120. It even comes with the MH lifetime "no questions asked guarantee".

Great jacket. Wish pockets were lined, but they are warm. I wish the zipper guard was a little bigger. In 40 mile gusts of wind I could feel it coming through zipper. Size seems right. Love the warmth.

Calls for a good goose down parka with an attached hood.And if there's rain or snow flurries a Mountain Hardwear hooded Ghost Whisperer jacket over that keeps you and parka dry.Yes,it's an XL size and the color is voltage,which is as close to lime green as I could get.Zippered side pockets make good hand warmers,and it comes with it's own stuff sack.

Light, warm and very cool. Sizing is a little snug at the XL. XXL was too big. Looks great. The material is pretty thin, which keeps the jacket light, so don't expect something like the old North Face Nuptse in terms of abrasion resistance.

It fits slightly smaller than what I would say is a normal XL. I am 185 ponds and 6'3" and it fits nice. I have long arms and so does this jacket. So, the fit is great for me. It is warm and light. You could wear this down to the mid 20s and then put a shell over it and wear it even colder. This hood is nice too and it is a good looking jacket. I thought it was a steal at such a low price. I found similar jackets in retail stores for way more.

Got this jacket. Very light weight. certainly would work for 3 season backpacking or mountaineering. Two problems I noted. I did not like the design of the hood. Needs to be bigger. Also, the sizing is off for me. I take a XXL in most jackets, including my old MH Fleece. This one was pretty tight for a XXL. I returned it.

I bought this coat because my old one is 15 years old . I have not used it yet because it has warmed up . The thing that really got me is how light this coat is! The new jacket is just that not a coat. Here in Missouri the weather is off by as much as 50 degrees a day so it is hard to find a real all around coat. This unit is just what I needed. Thanks You !

I bought this jacket for my husband and he loves it. It is very lightweight but also super warm. It also looks great- I was initially worried it would be too "shiny" but that is not the case at all. The only downside is that you can see the darker feathers through the exterior lining, so I can look wet or dirty at first glance.

good jacket, nice and light, nice hood. The baffles are pretty close to being sewn thru - not real fancy construction. Like others, I have to order toooooo big sizes so that the sleeve fits. Tall sizes would be nice. I am 6'3", 200 lbs. - I got the 2x. The sleeves fit well but the torso is large enough to fit another person in. THis is tolerable tho as I am mainly using as an outer layer.
