La Sportiva Estela PrimaLoft® Jacket - Insulated (For Women)
Closeouts. The mountain-ready La Sportiva Estela jacket holds in heat with warm PrimaLoft® insulation plus a wind- and water-resistant ripstop shell that blocks whatever Mother Nature throws at you. The two-way zip works well with belay devices and the droptail hem stays put under your harness. Around town, the reflective seams give you a boost of visibility, too.
Reviewed by VTSKIER from Vermont on Tuesday, January 10, 2017I am 5'4", 150lbs, curvy build. I am a large in most tops, so that's what i ordered. This jacket was wayyy to small. My 100lb teenage daughter can wear it, and it looks nice, not too big. I exchanged it for an XL, but honestly my hopes are not high. I will probably end up returning it.
Reviewed by VTTRAILGIRL from VT on Saturday, January 7, 2017Despite a review this jacket ran narrow in the shoulder, I couldn't resist the good deal. As reported, it, of course, was too snug. Instead of returning it, I tried it on an 11 miler in 10° F. Two things surprised me. The jacket paired perfectly with my Salomon hydration vest. I like that I didn't have extra bulk under it, from the narrow cut. And, the jacket stretched quite a bit. By the end of my run, I had full arm mobility. AND this jacket wicks moisture better than any jacket I've ever owned. AND it's really really warm.
I'm 6' tall and generally wear a large in women's tops, so I went with that. I think the XL would have be a touch wider but would have had too much bulk around the waist. Since I'm tall, I love having the proper length sleeve & waist this jacket provides. Thanks, La Sportiva.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Snoop D. from Utah on Friday, January 6, 2017It's so warm and it has so many pockets. It's pretty waterproof which is dope in snow storms.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Emm from Seattle on Thursday, November 17, 2016I ordered this jacket to replace my old, compressed, polyfill warm layer I keep in my pack when backcountry skiing. This could have been a nice jacket all around, and the hood is a big plus (fits over helmet); however, this good looking jacket (in blue) was too narrow in the shoulders (bad!) yet had ample room in the body as well as was long in arms and torso (good!). In street clothes I typically wear a small or medium top (4-6 size; but wear medium in Icebreaker) and I ordered this jacket in a medium. I have athletic shoulders and arms. This jacket restricted movement in shoulders and across upper back/back of shoulders, while being roomy in the body. Returned.
