Description

Put your fleece in the closet and leave it there.

Backcountry.com made the Women’s Luft 800 Down Sweater with high-loft fill and an ultralight shell to keep its weight down and help you stay warm on all your adventures. You’ll hardly notice the 12oz weight when you’re hiking, climbing, or skiing, but you’ll sure be stoked on the warm 800-fill down insulation. The crew at Backcountry.com understands how much of a hassle it can be to require a closet full of puffies, so they made this down sweater versatile enough to wear as a layering piece or a belay jacket.

Great fit, but too light weight of zipper

I loved the color (guacomole) and the fit. I'm 6' with long arms and the sleeves fit! It was form fitting and flattering. However, after a month of occasional use, the zipper came off. I think it was due to the zipper being less hefty due to the lightwieghtness of the jacket. Wish it had a beefier zipper!

GREAT Jacket

This is my favorite jacket [and I have many] because it fits great, I am 5'10" and 145 lbs. The sleeves are long and the fit is very flattering. It is light weight and warm and so
easy to throw on over anything. Packs down very small for travelling, and is great to wear under a shell if it is very cold.

Nice fit for tall women

I have long arms and wide shoulders, which can make it difficult to find jackets that fit. There's nothing worse than cold air seeping in around your wrists or not being able to lift your arms. The length of the arms are even a bit too long for me (I'm 5'9" and 140 lbs, bought the L) but I like how that keeps my hands warmer. I probably could have fit in the M if they had it, but am just as pleased with the L. It's still a flattering fit and lets me layer underneath a little easier.

Love the teaberry color. I wish more winter jackets came in warm colors. Not all of us look good in jewel tones. The fabric even pretty decent at repelling water. My only complaint is that it leaks a fair bit of down.

Super, maybe Super Duper

Bought as a surprise for my wife as she needed something to handle the beginning of the cold season in the Midwest. Functions extremely well (so far no temps below 0) for as light as it is. As mentioned, the cut is extraordinary, however I would definitely suggest sizing as normal instead of sizing up (as another reviewer suggested) because by not letting the Sweater hug your body, you lose the appeal and intention of the fit. No feathers showing through the red exterior, construction looks solid.

very cute and comfy, long arms

After reading all the reviews about sizing I ordered L in gray color. (I'm 5ft6in and 140lb) way too big in the upper body. yes, hips are snug, but not too tight. Tried it on one camping trip and it works great after a rain shell (but be careful - the jacket it not super short, so make sure the shell is longer). Later I ordered teaberry color in M. I must say - it fits much better. the hip width is pretty much the same as L, but overall fit is much better. I put the two sized together and the only difference was maybe an inch width in the chest area. Sleeves are very long for both sizes (which is not bad for warming up your hands inside them), and I have normal length arms. Teaberry color is very cute. Bright, but cute.

Sizing is off, but still worth the price.

Pros: It is warm. I love the color - the teaberry is not as bright as I feared. It is soft and light. The Napolean pocket is nice, too!
Cons: Sizing is off. I am 5'5" and normally wear a Medium/size 10 top. I read the reviews and so I ordered a Large. I will definitely be able to layer under this, but I think the Medium would have been okay. The sleeves on the Large are too long, and loose for me, but I can fix / live with that.
Fluffier than the Marmot Venus that I had ordered before I found this one - I am sending the Marmot back and keeping this one for my upcoming Montana Ski vacation. All in all, worth the ~$65 I paid!

Great jacket

I bought this jacket based on the reviews - I am 5'9 145 lbs and the medium is too tight of a fit. Very snug at the hips. The sleeves are great. I usually have problems with them being too short. Very light weight buy very warm. I am sending the medium back to get a larger size.

5 5

soft and warm

I got this jacket and wear it constantly! Very soft, very slimming design for a down jacket. Sleeves are a bit long, so I wear them cuffed up.

great down sweater

This down sweater comes with me on all adventures from fall through spring. The jacket fits true to size, although the arms are a little long. It is long in the body. It compresses well and is light enough for throwing in the pack 'just in case'. I got the grey/pink and the pink is VERY hot pink - just be aware. I got a medium and I'm 5'4, 135 and it is perfect. The cut is flattering. I highly recommend it!

Performance and Style

I purchased the BC Luft Down Sweater specifically for an eight night trans-sierra backpack trip in Sept. Weight, of course, is always the issue and I wasn't disappointed. This and a Gore-Tex shell were all I brought for layers. I never once got cold. This jacket is toasty warm, comfortable and soft. It just feels great. I love the way it fits. It moves so well with you. I'm average size, 5'6" and slender and I bought a medium. I read where one reviewer was disappointed with the sleeves that they were stretched out when they got it. I feel the way the sleeves are designed is a plus. I really hate sleeves that grab my wrists tight and bunch around my gloves. These sleeves fit over gloves very nicely. I'm not a flashy girl, but I went out on a limb and bought the teaberry color. It's bright and looks really sharp. When I returned from my trip I brought the jacket to work and two of my co-workers who are my height and also slender tried it on and really loved it, but for one draw back. They are both really busty ladies and the medium didn't fit around their chest. The fit is feminine and flattering, though. If you are big-busted, you may want to go up a size.

The only unfortunate thing, nobody's fault I believe, is somehow I got a hole in the sleeve right above the cuff. I don't when or how it happend, but feathers were coming out all over. So when I got back I contacted BC to exchange it and I explained the situation and, as usual, they were fabulous about returning it and another one is on its way. The affordability makes this a five-star beauty.

of all the reviews i have read, I appreciate description on the bust as that makes a huge difference! Thank you. Very helpful. I am concerned about the sleeve issue as I am only 5 2, but going to give it a try.

for small hips and big shoulders

After reading all the reviews I got L (I'm 5'6 with 39inch hip and 36inch chest). I'm pretty much swimming in L on the top, but it's nice and snug in the hip... will probably do great with a layer under it, but I was hoping to use it with just microweight smartwool shirt under. The fill is very soft and comfy and it packs small, will try it on backpacking trip this in 2 days.
Want to try M, but now the price went up again...

long and lean (not for the short or pear shaped ladies out there)

This jacket is wonderfully cut if you're tall and slim(ish?) - I'm 5'11"/135lbs and the medium *just* fits - no sweaters under this jacket for me, which is fine since I wanted this as a slim medium warm layer under a shell.If you wear a C cup or larger, and have a "normal"-sized rib cage (I guess I'm saying if you're not petite), this cut may not work for you. I wear a mid-B cup, and if I was any larger, the medium wouldn't fit. (I did try on the large, and the arms are sooooo long you may just want to look elsewhere if the medium doesn't fit. I also have the Patagonia Upside of Down jacket, and it's a more generous feminine cut. It's a thicker down jacket as well, but not too puffy by any means.)For me, being the sasquatch that I am, the Luft's medium-sized arm length is perfectly long, and the back has ample coverage as well. The photos above depict the cut of the jacket pretty accurately. The carbon color, on my computer at least, looks a little green-grey, but it's really a very neutral light grey with a subtle golden thread interwoven with the grey.An inside pocket is nice to have, and the slightly gathered cuffs are softened by ribbed cotton on the palm side. As Martha would say, "It's a good thing." Ideally, I'd like a two-way zipper, but it's a minor complaint.(and shhhhh: I found this jacket on geartrade for a steal. You may want to check there too if you don't mind not being able to return it.)

Adore this jacket

I absolutely adore this jacket. Can't wait for the cold weather just to see how long I can get away with wearing something so light in Chicago. It's super light-weight and compressible... took it on a trip to Peru for the evenings in the mountains and wished it were colder so I could wear it more.I am about 5'7" and 135 lbs--fairly slim with long arms--a medium fit me perfectly. Many times sleeves run short and these were great. It's not bulky and is flattering to a woman's curves.The Carbon color is definitely not black--it's like a graphite gray with more of an orange than red interior. Great detail. I'd buy another just for fun (if on sale again). Recommend it and enjoy!

Warm, good looking and NOT puffy

Out with the puffy, great jacket that looks great, its really warm, somewhat compressible, the way the panels are stitched helps the jacket to have a nice fitting close to the body, good length, really warm, a must in a few words, got the red one

Write your question here...Is the outer...

Write your question here...Is the outer shell treated to be water resistant or water proof at all?

Responded on

No it's not treated to be water proof, but the material is slightly water resistant. I wore it out in the Black Hills when it was misty out, and it did just fine. I'd hesitate to try it in a shower or gentle rain though.

Size Up

I read some reviews before ordering, so I ordered a medium instead of small, which is what I usually order. I'm 5'5", 130 lbs with larger shoulders and an athletic build, and the medium fits me perfectly. The jacket is really warm, and I'm very pleased with the quality.

Sweet

Got this for my lady friend. She had wanted a down sweater type jacket for awhile. She is 5'8" and the medium fit her like a charm. She likes the Teaberry color and the fit better than the patagonia down sweater. She always is cold but with this piece of gear she stays warm. comfortable and functional.

Love it

It is great - comfortable and light. I can quish it into the backpack. Love it.
