Great jacket!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have last years (green). It is VERY green. I like the thought that went into this jacket: great pockets, huge pit zips, capacious hood. For a hardshell, it has a "soft hand" and feels a little stretchy: much less crinkly than my older Arcteryx. My only 2 "gripes" (which aren't really gripes):
1) I like a small sleeve pocket, which this doesn't have
2) the fit is a bit baggier than I'm used to. I'm 5'7" 150 lbs and I swim a little in the M although of course that's great for layering warm stuff.
Good job!

Responded on

At a year followup, I still go for 5 stars. I use it WAY more than my other comparable jackets (Eider and Arcteryx). Good waterproofing, I really appreciated the big inside pockets for skins, and the hood really covers my helmet without being intrusive. Plus (I know this is kinda nitpicky): when zipped up fully in bad conditions, it doesn't pinch my chin or feel too tight around the neck as the others do. I can still turn my head freely so I tend to leave the hood on. I have several other flylow bits (baker bibs, vest, gloves) and have really found them to be my favorites items right now.
