TOASTY!

  • Gender: Female

Love it. Mostly because it's so darn TOASTY! I usually stay warm when I'm moving and freeze my butt off when standing around. I've worn the Neutrino Endurance in -33 to 15 defree F temps, and it has kept me warm and therefore happy. In this jacket, I have responded to medical scenarios (lots of standing around), dug snow pits (shoveling and then lots of standing around), toured in the backcountry (wear it while transitioning from hiking/skinning up to skiing down), walked around town (it was just -22 here in the Jackson, WY area), and set up/broke down camp on backcountry courses (cold early mornings waiting for students and chilly evenings sitting around camp).

I love that it keeps me warm, yes. And, I love that it has a hood (that is moldable), zippered pockets, long arms, a slight "tail" in back to avoid the low-back draft, soft fleecy lining right at the chin, and Velcro-adjustable cuffs. I am 5'7" and 130 lbs, and the medium fits perfectly. I can put layers on underneath and also put the Neutrino on over my shell for those transitions in the backcountry when I don't want to take any layers off but DO want to put on more layers.
