It's really a great lightwieght jacket, except for the zipper
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Michael from New Jersey on Wednesday, November 25, 2015
First things first. I don't care what anyone says but these lightweight down jackets work best as a layer. They will not keep you warm at anything below 40 to 45 F on their own. However, if you combine this with another layer, it is absolutely good down into the low 20's with a thermal hoodie or fleece. I wanted something that was lightweight and packable for days on the move, tried the mail order catalog brands and they were designed for shorter, heavy guys. All Mountain Hardwear is great for guys with an Athletic Fit, they are my new favorite brand. If any negative is they built this great jacket and put the cheapest zipper on it. I also have a little worry on durability but I am not very rough on coats, and have better designed jackets for that application. Also it is slightly shiny compared to competitors, so it's a bold look. As far as sizing, same fit as all other Mountain Hardware jackets.
