Sandstone Sierra Jacket

Reviewed by Frenchie from Riverside, California on Sunday, February 12, 2012
I purchased this jacket for winter desert camping to combat wind and cold with good mobility and still take a beating.
This style runs big, I am 5'09" 165 and I ordered a Medium. The medium is still a little big and has plenty of room for sweatshirt/sweater. The length is perfect.
I took it to NM and the nights were around 30 degrees. Wearing only a shirt underneath for extend periods of time felt a little chilly, when I put on a sweat shirt I was fine and I still had plenty of mobility. This jacket held up well in the wind and the hood kept my head warm, no need for my wool beanie.
Nice jacket, what I was looking for. Not quite as warm as some of the reviews would lead you to believe but fine with a sweater.
If you want to blend in an urban area get a different style, if you like the woodsman look get this jacket.
