Toasty, Stylish, and LIGHT

Got this jacket on sale just in time for the end of ice climbing season, and it delivered. Warm as hell as a belay jacket in Adirondack sub-zero standing around, and so lightweight and packable I had no reservations about throwing it in my pack for some back-country cross country ski trips in the Marcy dam area. I am 6'4", 180, ordered an XL and it hits right at the waist, but for a belay jacket that's exactly what I want so it doesn't interfere with my harness. Overall, this jacket is fantastic, although I agree fleece on BOTH sides of the pockets would be fantastic.
