Ready for another killer day in the mountains.
That 5 a.m. alarm is a toughie in your drafty mountain cabin, but after you've rolled out of bed, fired up the slumbering embers in the woodstove, and donned the Mountain Standard Men's Down Jacket, things will start to look up pretty quick. The Down Jacket will keep you warm whether you're planning on spending a crisp bluebird day on the slopes or a morning snowshoe hike around the cabin since it's filled with a lofty 700-fill down and finished with a water-repellent DWR treatment to fight off snow, sleet, and light rain. Contrasting quilting keeps the jacket visually on-point and makes sure the down stays in place to prevent cold spots, and the drawcord-adjustable hood cinches down with one hand to keep the wind from sucking the heat off your noggin when you're getting first tracks on plush corduroy or through the sun-dappled woods.

- Q & A
not a heavyweight down jacket
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large
it's a nice jacket, but shouldn't be listed under the 'heavyweight down' filter. This jacket is a medium weight down at best. Don't get me wrong, it's a really nice jacket, especially for the price, but if you run cold, or are looking for a jacket to wear when it's single digits, this isn't it. This isn't a Mountain Standard issue, it's an issue with how Backcountry has it listed. The photos are also deceiving and make the jacket look like a full puffy jacket, which it isn't. I'm returning it for something heavier.
