Bought as a birthday present for my sister. She is pretty pumped about it. Seems to run a little bigger than usual with space to wear a jacket or sweater underneath. Is super warm and easy to pack up small if she doesn't want to wear or carry it.
goes with me everywhere
This isn't a big warm down puffy. It's great for a "hoody" just as the name implies. A warm insulating layer at a football game when the temp drops. Cuts the wind pretty well too. I keep it in my car for just those purposes. It's thin enough to add under a shell for a little extra warmth, comfortable to wear all the time, all around.
Cold and dry - bring this with you!
For me a down hoody needs to be not that bulky yet warm. The hood is so essential for those super cold days in Colorado. This down hoody fits those needs. As much as I love my sythnetic puffy's for wet cold weather, this jacket is just so much warmer and don't you always have a waterproof shell to throw on top if it gets wet out there? I was surprised to find that I fit into a size medium in this jacket - usually I'm a large - so it does run a little big. Of course this doubles as my around town winter jacket as well.
Does the shell have a DWR coating...is it...
Does the shell have a DWR coating...is it water-resistant?
Yes, you can count on the fabric to have a DWR applied. Some DWR coatings are very durable and last, and some don't. Just keep in mind that the fabric will be only slightly water resistant. If you are exposed to anything more than some passing snowflakes, or very light brief drizzle of rain, then you'll want to protect the jacket with a full waterproof, or use a synthetic jacket in wetter climates. With down insulation, protecting your insulation is especially important on extended backcountry trips.
