The flagstaff O2 jacket is perfect for fall and spring. The stretch fabric has a great hand and is super cozy. This is a great alternative to the Patagonia Nano-Air, with just 20 grams more of synthetic insulation. The face fabric is very breathable and stretchy, it also features a DWR treatment to repel water. I love the draw cords on the hood as well as the hem, they are a great feature especially if you are using this jacket "in the field" and need it to fit snugly around a helmet. There's a nice sleeve for your phone on the inside of the right pocket that has a headphone hole so you can use this to sweat in during the cold months.
I found the fit on the jacket to be a little boxy in the mid-section, I'm a pretty skinny guy so it could just be my size, but it is not an athletic fit which is great if you are using this as part of your layering system. The sleeves are a great length, and I love the drop hem in the back to keep the bum warm.
The Flagstaff has been my go to jacket in these cooler fall temperatures that Utah has been having. I've worn it everyday since I got it. It looks great and I've gone out on the town in it, as well as hiked and rock climbed in it. It was a bit windy, and pretty chilly on the wall, the Flagstaff kept me warm and happy.
I'd recommend this jacket to anyone who is looking at the Patagonia Nano-Air or the Arc'teryx Atom LT but doesn't want to spend an arm and a leg, but still get a high quality product with slightly more insulation in it. Overall this jacket is pretty kick ass, and I will wear it until the holes I put into it are no longer repairable.
