update on hyllus
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Just an update: since the last review, I actually returned the medium Neptune Sky color (which I don't even think they are offering anymore) in exchange for a small Black Hyllus. The Black is different than the Carbon Copy - I think it is darker, and has a lighter blue lining and very light blue zips . In the online pictures it shows up as white but it is actually a light blue. I exchanged it because I wanted a color that would go with more things (a little more formal), and I wanted a little more formfitting of a jacket. I am 5'6" 130 lbs, A cup, and the small is perfect - I can actually still fit a small atom hoody under it + a baselayer (then you are really toasty!). I really love this jacket so far! It is a great weight - still pretty portable, but definitely very warm. So far I've worn it down to 30 degrees and it is actually a little too warm if you have a baselayer on and are being pretty active. That being said, you will be chilly if you wear it with only a tshirt and are just standing there in 20-30 degree weather. Very comfy though. A little stiffer than the atom, but that's to be expected because it has wind protection. The sleeves are the perfect length and subtly taper to not let drafts in. Love it!
