“How packable is this jacket?”

  • The older version (with hood adjustments) is not highly compressible like down. The newer style version is much lighter and is a bit closer to down in terms of compressibility. I had both in my possession when I bought. The older version is a more substantial jacket with a fantastic good. It's also a bit longer in the torso and roomier in the chest then the newer version.

  • It will pack down fairly small. However there is no Pocket it packs into like some other specific packable jackets. You could put it into a separate stuff sack. I tuck it into it's hood and cinch it down for packing purposes, works ok.

  • We bought a stuff sack at REI for it. The bag is about 9" high and about 4.5 - 5" across. (it's a cylinder shape) I think it would've fit in a smaller one but it packs in this size easily.

  • This is not specifically listed as packable, but it is decently packable.

  • It's packable, but not as small as Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer. Actually, I have not tried stuffing it in its own pocket, just the backpack. Great jacket at a bargain price.

  • Good question, but tough to answer. The jacket is packable and gets "pretty" small, but it is not as small or light as down. I know that is vague, but I hope that helps.
