A lot of warmth without much weight.
Lightweight but warm, Mountain Hardwear's Micro Ratio Boys' Down Jacket is a perfect piece for hiking, backpacking, and wearing around town. The 30D nylon ripstop fabric is tough enough to withstand the shenanigans of your short stack, and the 650-fill down has been treated with Q.Shield, a water-repellent coating that helps it stay warm even if it gets wet. Dual hem drawcords let your monster cinch the Micro down tightly and lock out drafts, and the high collar provides a snug and cozy feel when the winter mornings get chilly.

- Q & A
Great lightweight and warm jacket
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I bought this for my 11 year old son who needed a lightweight, warm and packable jacket for backpacking and general use. This fits the bill and, on sale, it was a great value. The L is a bit roomy but should fit him for a few years. The exterior fabric is lightweight but seems more bomber than others.
