Super light but... down is coming out

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Michigan backpacker from SW Michigan on Thursday, February 12, 2015
I've had the jacket for almost two weeks; wore it daily for about 10 days.

PROS: Super duper ultralight. Accurate sizing/measurements. Warm to about 20 degrees with a thin long-sleeved shirt and a thin fleece sweater (need thicker sweater if there's wind). Thought it would be thicker/warmer, but won't complain given how light it is.

CONS: Hood is huge and has no drawcord or any other way to tighten it. Three days after starting to wear the jacket, I wore a black pea coat. The moment I got out of the car, someone asked me if I had had a fight with a chicken. There was down fuzz everywhere, but I hadn't seen it because the interior of my car is light-colored. Since then, more has come out; there are always little pieces of down floating around and sticking to my sweaters. Raises concern about losing loft/warmth after prolonged use.
