I have taken this jacket on a hiking trip for 2 months through the Nepalese Himalaya' and it performed brilliantly! Snug feminine fit and light weight makes it feel warm and toasty just what you want and need when it is literally freezing outside. The cut of this jacket is also quite flattering the way that the baffles of down have been sewn so you don't look like a michelin man. I highly recommend and would buy this same jacket many times over. It is so comfy I now live in this jacket whenever the mercury drops!!
