Too short for 5 stars.

I LOVE this jacket, and it's become my go to shell in North Dakota during the "polar vortices". Wind resistance is great, for a jacket that feels like a joke when you pick it up (it's that light). The hood is shaped great for me, and it's one of the few jackets I own where the hood seems to keep the draught out of my neck AND allow for visibility.

This is more of a down sweater style than a down parka, and is not as much of a "puffy coat" as I had in mind, but warm nonetheless.

No worries on style as it will get all sorts of compliments. I got the burnt olive color, and it's noticeably darker than the image appears on STP, but looks great.

Cons:
-Too short. I'm 6'0/180# and the L fit me perfect around the chest, but stops right at my waistline. The elastic band on the waist occasionally creeps up because it's not long enough.
-Not 100% down filling. The sleeves and hood aren't filled down, they're a synthetic fiber (perhaps not a con because synthetic insulates when wet--also, the synthetic insulation is very high quality and feels like real down).
