Kept me pretty warm around camp at 18 degrees and didn't suffer any damage from bits of cinder flying out of the fire at night. Arms were a little short, but it worked in it's favor as it has a cuff that holds it in place without having to resort to thumb loops. Also, was light enough that I could still wear it on light day hikes as long as our ascents weren't too long. Even if the hikes did turn a little more aggressive, it stows pretty compact. Great addition to your arsenal. Only complaint is it sounds a little raspy while walking around without a shell on over it. I took some crap for my choice of color (Vintage/Excalibur) but I like not having to always be outfitted in black. Overall a pretty reliable piece of gear.
