Verified Buyer Reviewed by Kiley from SW Colorado on Thursday, February 8, 2018
I have been looking for the right puffy for some time now. I was seeking something that was light and packable, offered a comfortable fit, came in a reasonable color, and didn't break the bank. This down jacket fits all the criteria and then some. It is SO compact and not only is the color 'reasonable', but it turns out to be one of my favorite colors in real life - a really pretty, earthy green. Something worth noting is that the jacket does *not* look shiny as it does in the picture. This was something I had decided to accept as an unfortunate fact when I ordered it (the awesome price was worth the tradeoff), but it does not look like that!! It is definitely matte. Another factor that is important to me in considering purchasing down products is how the down is sourced. Though Mountain Hardwear is just a little vague about it, it does seem that they are making efforts to ensure that the down they use is ethically sourced (and it is not live-plucked). I have been wearing this down jacket every day since I purchased it and it seems durable. I plan to use it for daily wear, hiking, canyon exploring, and backpacking. I could hardly be happier with my purchase!
