Reviewed by Frankie Flats from North Dakota on Saturday, January 7, 2017Just picked this up 1-7-17. 5 Stars for this Gem Daddy!!
1) Super light - at first thought it would not be that warm, but was out yesterday in N.D. winter, 0 degree and jacket kept me plenty warm with a T-shirt, later it got down to -15 degree and I put a light 100 weight fleece under it and was perfectly toasty.
2) Dropped some water against it and it wicked it right away - As well totally windproof - longer tail to cover bum - quality zippers - hoods cinches well for a perfect seal - packs very small.
3) Small fits like Medium... Runs big, I am 5 10-" 165-170 and the Small Fit PERFECT, even OK with a light 100 weight fleece under it, I have long arms and the sleeves were perfect length even on the small: So if your are a Medium the small will fit you. If you are small I believe the sleeves will be way to long and jacket to big.
4) Pertex in the lighter color of the the 2 tone is thin and you can slightly see the darker down through it, to some it may look almost dirty, but honestly doesn't bother me a bit, subtle, I am sure at some point someone will make a transparent down jacket so you can see the down and will be the trendy jacket.
IF YOU ARE A MEDIUM, Snap up the Small !!!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Unknown consumer from Kanab on Wednesday, November 5, 2014We bought this as a gift for our son. He loves it. He's in Colorado where it gets nice and cold so his endorsement seems to entail putting this jacket to a good test. It's new so I can't attest to durability.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by soloandy from Portland on Thursday, September 4, 2014This jacket feels so soft and warm. It's not slim fit, so it looks a litter larger than I thought.
Reviewed by Jan from KRK on Thursday, August 28, 2014The pertex is so thin, that there are the dark feathers visible through it. That makes the jacket look stained. Sizing runs a bit big but more or less ok. I am 174 lbs 5'10.5 and the M is more or less OK. Roomy but acceptable as for a belay jacket normally put onto the all other layers. I am in doubts now - the jacket looks great from the functional point of view, but I look like a slattern when I put it on. send it back or not ... this is the question
Reviewed by jsweat from D.C. on Monday, August 11, 2014I just received this coat in size medium. The coat looked great, felt sturdy and well made, and was super warm. However, the sizing is off and he coat was too big. I wear a medium (5' 8" and 165 lbs) and this coat fit like a large. Sleeves were a few inches too long and it was way too roomy in the middle. Sadly, they don't make this coat in small, so I am returning it. I would highly suggest ordering a size down.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by ozora from portland on Saturday, July 26, 2014rather warm and lighter, and suit to size
Reviewed by Sueeng from Petoskey, MI on Thursday, April 3, 2014Just received this as the weather finally started warming up so haven't fully tested yet, but its appearance is very pleasing, construction appears top notch. Hard to believe something so lite will keep someone warm in subzero weather but we'll give it a try.
Reviewed by Shenandoah man from Shenandoah on Saturday, March 29, 2014I'm 6'2" 200lbs 32" waist. Large fit great but I went with an XL. I like the extra down I get and also the extra length in the sleeves. Works well with Inertia shell.
Reviewed by OutdoorEric from Ca on Saturday, February 15, 2014Sized on the larger size. I fit into a medium. I am 5-'11", 175. Love the jacket and materials.
