Wanted a down jacket that was packable for travel. This is the perfect jacket. I purchased the brown color. Looks great in the city, as well as the trail. Bought one size larger to accommodate for undergarments, but wished I would have purchased the med. The fit is very accurate. Very warm jacket in cold conditions.

Piling on the sleeve size train

Bought this jacket since it appeared to be a good light down jacket for a fair price, but the sleeve issue is real. I'm 5'7" and got a Medium, and the sleeves fell short of my wrists. It's too bad, I really liked the jacket otherwise.

Again..the SIZE thing...

Like EVERYONE else in here, I was disappointed with the size.

I am 6' and 200 lbs, i.e. not enormous. I ordered an XL. Body of the jacket barely cleared my waist, and the SLEEVES?! Man I dunno who designed this thing. The sleeves came to my mid forearm. I'm not talking a little, annoying gap of skin between my glove and the end of the sleeve, I'm talking like comically short sleeves, to the point that it looked silly on me.

Also, it's pretty thin insulation-wise.

If you're a dude with exceptionally short arms, go for it. It is, after all, a decent price for a low-loft down jacket (that is, ONLY if on sale at $80 -- at full price this is a rip off no matter how you slice it). But otherwise I'd say skip it.

And Mountain Hardware: Step your sizing game up!

Sleeves....bummer~

I should have listened to the other reviewers...the sleeves are too short. I'm 5'8" and have no problem with other Med sized coats. So if you have really short arms, this coat is for you!

Not bad

As everyone is saying the sleeves are a little short and the collar is no the best looking or warmest but overall a great jacket.

Decent Jacket, but WTF Sleeves?

I bought this jacket last winter and wrote a fairly positive review about it. However, I would like to amend that because some months later it started to deteriorate as small tears began to have tufts of down leak out. I initially repaired with duck tape but I found a new down jacket at a spring sale in Australia so I returned this one to bc.com after I returned to the states. Because this happened so unexpectedly in the first 8 months of use I rescind my earlier compliments.

This is what I wrote:
I've used this jacket both touring and inbounds. The quick and simple version of this jacket is that it will keep your upper body warm and it looks and fits well enough to be worn walking around on a cold night. But who knows why they cut the sleeves the way they did. I sized up from a L to an XL and the cuffs still barely came to my wrists when I use my arms. It doesn't ruin the jacket (if you size up enough) but it still detracts. Otherwise, a good value.

Short Sleeves-No Problem

I bought a large, which is what I usually wear, and fits fine! The sleeves are only a little short when you strech your arms out really far forward as possible. In short, the sleeve lenght is fine for any practical use.
The jacket is incredibly warm and wind resistant and when added to a thin liner jacket, keeps you warm well below freezing.

Odd fit

I would have given it five stars if not for the fit. Arms were too short, particularly for Western customers, and the room in the underarm was too tight, making the armpit zipper press and rub against armpits. (I have slim to med build/height)

I think Mt Hardwear has inconsistent sizing.. I later orered Sub-Zero in the same size and it was way too big and different in proportions compared to Lo-Down. You should first try on a MH model before buying online.

Size Up!

We got this jacket for our oldest son last year and found the sizing too small also, but exchanged up a size. Ordered big for next oldest son and fits just fine, no sleeve issues for him. The coat is a great value and is not "puffy" which teenagers seem to dislike nowadays.

Very happy with the value, especially since coats don't last much more than one season with a teen son.

Don't bother. The sleeves will be too short...

I read the other reviews and chose to ignore them because I am an average-sized woman. The sleeves were still ridiculously short. I can't even begin to imagine how this jacket passed any sort of quality tests...

Sleeves and Waist Too Short.

I am 6' and 185. I orginally ordered a Large it was way to small, so I ordered an XL and it is still too short.
Annoying.

Sleeve too short

Well I should have trusted the other reviews. I wear a large in other Mountain Hardwear items. This large jacket fit great everywhere but the sleeves. They seemed fine when I put it on but when I would move my arm they would ride up way too far. Unless you are a t-rex size way up for the sleeves.

Responded on

ahahhahaha I guess I have T Rex Arms. My wife says that I have gorilla arms strong and very short, this jacket fits me perfect

Arms too short

This jacket is great...if you have short arms.
I went to a local retailer to try it on, but they didn't have the Lodown. I tried on other MH coats, down and synth, and a small fit me perfectly, so I bought it. When it showed up at my door, the arms were too short. I exchanged for a medium which I got today. While the arms were a little longer, they were still too short! I'm returning the medium and going to try a different coat.
Other than the sizing, the coat is great! Warm as hell, lightweight, and packs down super small!

Great , except the sizing

I am 6' , 190 lbs. I usually wear a large in outerwear. In a dress shirt I wear 16/34.

This was just too short in the sleeves and I don't like the large floppy collar. Had to return it.

Inconsistent sizing

I bought this jacket in what I wear in the monkey man and boris jackets from MH so I assumed this would fit perfect in a med also. Well, it fit good in SOME places and bad in others. The sleeves were too short and the underarm seams chaffed my pits. The collar has a terrible, floppy, oversized design that lets heat dump out through your neck. However, the jacket will still keep you warm even with heat escaping out the collar, it has pit zips which are a great feature on a down jacket, and it doesn't look like your average down coat. If you are considering buying this jacket, I would size up.

The cons outweighed the pros for me and it was sent back as sizing up prob would have caused different issues.
