Gear Review

4 5

Super cute, but still untested

I bought this in the middle of summer because it was on sale (still $260 though - yikes!). I rarely if ever buy such expensive gear, especially a hoody, but I researched this one very carefully before making my decision. I got a medium in Neptune Sky and love the color, style, etc. It seems like it will go well with everything, but with the orange inside and raspberry zippers, has a kind of urban street cool. It fits me really well (5'6", 130 lbs) with room for a very light underlayer (maybe I will spring for the Atom hoody in the future?). The fit seems great, it is really cute on - we'll see how it holds up when it gets colder and I am actually using it! I'll update my review after a cold Boston winter and let you guys know. I hoping for this to be my layer for cold but not freezing days, which we get a lot of in Boston. I have a big Marmot down coat for the REAL dead of winter; it isn't as stylish and makes me look like a big blue marshmallow, but always does the job.
