Great for the cold

I was really excited for this jacket and even more thrilled when I found it on sale. Admittedly, I am using it incorrectly (as a single layer rather than as a midlayer), but it does not disappoint.

My first reaction is that the lining is really soft and warm. It makes me enjoy wearing it. I am usually cold, but I live in Wisconsin (not a great combination). I wore it outside when it was around 5 degrees Fahrenheit and it actually kept me warm as long as I was moving. I have not tried it standing still.

It is heavier and less packable than down and insulated synthetic of similar price, but it is definitely warmer, which was really important to me. I think it will be good for backpacking, but I have not tried it.

The cut is not ideal and I wish it went down a little further to cover the top of my pants, but it's a good jacket and I can deal with a slightly less-flattering look.
