VERY WARM - but hideous neon color prevented me from keeping it.

I was really looking forward to this jacket as a warm layer since a friend of mine was wearing one on our most recent backpacking trip. She was toasty-warm, sitting still around our damp, chilly campsite while I froze in my heaviest smartwool base layer and rain jacket. In fact, this is the piece that originally brought me to STP, since MH stopped making this particular item. Unfortunately, this was the only color they had left, and I didn't bat an eye, because my friends' thermostatic jacket was yellow too...so I thought whatever it looked like on the screen, it was probably fine.

No. This color is not even wearable. This color hurts my eyes. I just can't pay this much money for a color that is blindingly ugly.
When I put this on in front of my S.O his comments were "did you know it was going to be that color?" and "as long as you don't wear it in public, I think you should keep it."
