Get down with the water-resistant down.
A little bit of cold weather never stopped you from taking the dogs out on a snowshoe expedition around the local lake, and thanks to the Mountain Hardwear Women's Stretchdown Down Jacket, your ambitions to get outside are officially unstoppable. Catering to most, if not all, of your cold weather pursuits, this jacket features a lightweight yet robust stretch-knit fabric that provides weather-resistant protection and unrestricted mobility, and can be worn as a single layer or underneath a waterproof shell in seriously inclement weather. The Q.Shield down insulation is fortified with a water-resistant coating that protects the down from precipitation, which ensures unlimited versatility. And perhaps the most important and discerning feature is the stretch welded channel construction that not only discourages biting winds from penetrating your core warmth, but assures ample temperature regulation and furnace-like fervor even on the coldest winter days.

I gave this as a gift recently and couldn't be happier. The sizing was spot on and the Stretchdown material is great. it even packs down relatively small for throwing in a pack or day pack in shoulder seasons.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
This jacket is my newest winter staple. It is so warm without being restricting. The stretch down really is as revolutionary as it sounds. I spend my days giving myself big bear hugs in this jacket and being constantly impressed with how much it can stretch. The color, I have the scarlet red, is beautiful, but I've also seen the black and navy in person, and they're beautiful as well. The fit is amazing. I have big hips and I'm always worried about being able to zip up jackets, but the stretch helps this be a comfortable and flattering shape for just about every body type. Not your average "puffy jacket".
Finally, a down jacket that moves with you. I wear it when I'm out running errands, but I will admit, if I were to do anything crazy active, I would probably sweat to death. For normal use, it's great. Might not be the most breathable for long, strenuous hikes.
Is this jacket supposed to be able to fit into its own pocket?
