After using this piece all winter, I feel I'm in a good position to review it.
Fit: I'm 5'10, 145 lbs. The medium fits me very well.
Pro's: Ultra light, super compressible.
Takes up very little room in a pack. Mango is super bright which is great for what can be short dark & cold days in Interior BC. Jacket is also quite warm. I'm pretty warm blooded and I find it to be an appropriate puffy for breaks between athletic activities in the mountains (ski touring) down to about -20 C (-4 F) Anything colder and the bigger puffies come out of the closet.
Cons: DWR wears off quickly, and the piece has very little water resistance. Any kind of membrane would obviously increase the weight of the piece, and I like it just the way it is. But, you do need to be conscious of this and keep it under a shell if there's any kind of precipitation.
Overall, this is a top notch piece.
