Verified Buyer Reviewed by MLR from New York City on Wednesday, February 10, 2016This is an extremely lightweight jacket that I would only wear alone if it wasn't too cold (i.e. above 40 degrees). Because it is thin, I was able to wear it under a fairly fitted Patagonia jacket and it proved to be an excellent insulator, leaving room to move, more so than with the Patagonia fleece I normally wear under the jacket. You get two products for the price of one -- a solid insulator to wear under heavier jackets and a jacket you can wear on its own when it isn't frigid.
Reviewed by rackops from California on Friday, December 25, 2015I bought this for my wife and taking it out of the box, it appeared to be too small. I had her try it on and sure enough, it was. She wears a size 6/8 and I bought a size L for her. I should have bought an XL, though that would be the first XL jacket I've ever bought for her! Otherwise, it was a really nice jacket and I was impressed with it. Just wish it was a bit bigger!

Quadfusion insulation is better than primaloft.
Reviewed by Liz from fernie, BC on Monday, March 24, 2014I've been tossing up getting a light synthetic jacket like this for a while. Would it be too sweaty? Would it be so thin that it doesn't really do anything warmth wise?
I found this one for a good price, and decided to give it a go.
The good stuff:
First, it fits like a dream - I'm a typical medium, at 160cm and 60kg - it is nice and long in the torso and I can pull the arms down to cover my hands if needed, but otherwise the arms sit nicely at the top of my hands. Plenty of room about the chest, hips, and articulated elbows mean no riding up. I could easily fit several base layers underneath, and it is trim enough to fit easily under other jackets.
Second, I've found it to be pretty warm, even when wet. Have worn it skiing under a shell, and over a base layer at temps about -10 to 0 degC. Even after stacking it multiple times and getting powder all up my back, I was still warm. Most of the time I had it partly unzipped, and vents in my jacket slightly open. And I don't find it any more sweat-collecting than a typical fleece. Yay!
The not so good stuff:
Why in an ultra-light packable jacket such as this one would you not make it so you can turn it into it's own pocket?? I've gotten around this by twisting the sleeve and stuffing it into that. It does come with a stuff sack, but thats already been put to other uses.
Overall, really happy with this.
