In 1981, physicist and mountain climber Ron Gregg witnessed his planned summit of Denali go horribly wrong as his frostbitten partner was airlifted off a glacier.

Haven't had a chance to use it yet (purchased during a summer sale) in winter weather, but really happy with the jacket so far. It's surprisingly lightweight for such a sturdy jacket. Fit is true to specifications, obviously made of high quality materials. Only downside I can see is that the cross vent zippers are a bit tricky to zip up and down, due to the angle of the zipper.

Love the light breathable fabric. Love the styling. It's just baggy on my average sized head. It's almost like the hidden elastic in the back is about 1/2 inch too short. Unless you have an enormous gourd, the elastic doesn't stretch.

I am very happy with the quality of this jacket. Lightweight, waterproof, breathable, packable. I'm 5'10" 132lbs and the small fits perfect. My only complaint about the jacket is the hood is quite large. But, it is designed to fit over a helmet, so I understand the size, just bigger hood than I need since I won't be wearing this with a helmet.

True to size. I am 5'9" and 160lb and medium is a perfect fit. I bough it in summer time so did not have a chance to test it out in a cold weather. Fits well it it looks really sharp and it is good quality jacket.
