A fancy quilting pattern adds an element of style to this lightweight, synthetically insulated jacket.
You are a renaissance woman and boundaries don't exist in your world. You place equally high expectations on your outwear, and the Mountain Hardwear Women's Thermostatic Insulated Jacket won't disappoint you. This lightweight, warm jacket lets you zoom in Zermatt, sight-see in Sorrento, and work in Washington all winter long without letting cold air get the better of you. And, tipping the scales well under one pound, you can pack 49.4 pounds worth of gear and this jacket in without exceeding the 50-pound baggage limit imposed by most major airlines.
Whether you're skiing or traveling, you want to be warm. While down insulation is the warmest thing out there (besides snuggling with your cuddle-bunny), it isn't perfect. Expensive and susceptible to moisture, down can leave you low and wet when winter turns, well, wintry. As a solution to the down dilemma, the folks at Mountain Hardwear created Thermal.Q Elite synthetic insulation: a combination of several different densities of fibers that interact to create a 3-D grid-like structure that creates the same air-trapping effect as down. Unlike down, however, Thermal.Q Elite resists water and thus retains its warmth-retaining grid structure so you don't get the cold shoulder when you're dashing through a vicious drizzle to your car.
Hand-warmer pockets zip for safe storage, and one of the pockets acts as a storage pouch for the entire jacket. Low-profile elastic cuffs make for easy layering over heavy baselayers and under a a waterproof shell. A new diamond quilting pattern adds a splash of style to this jacket so you aren't an eyesore when you're strolling along the Champs-Elysees on Valentine's Day.

Bought this for the wife. It has a nice fitted cut and color was not too bright (bought the berry jam). Warmth to weight ratio is excellent.
Only issue is packing it into the pocket. It was not easy. Was a bit worried the zip would break while trying to pull it close.
