The good warmth
This is a classic piece. Just the right amount of down to keep it nice and toasty, but light enough to wear through the beginning of fall/spring. (I use it on most days except the coldest of winter). The DWR coating fights off moisture, and the polyester rip-stop keeps the wind at bay. Once you go down, you don't go back, its just a more 'cozy' warmth than similar synthetic insulated pieces. The one thing that does bug me a bit about the jacket (if i had to nit-pick) is the fit. It is just a little on the 'boxy' side for me. I'm not a small guy, I'm 5'10, 190lbs and the Large fits wide in the chest area (the jacket length, arm length, all that fits great) I'm a large in mostly every article of clothing, but this jacket just seems to fit on the wider side. I would suggest sizing down to achieve a more snug fit. The jacket will be warmer when snug, and will function as a great layering piece for those really cold days. Overall, really great, classy, lightweight 'shoulder season' jacket.
