Limit the chill.
When you don't want to risk getting your down jacket wet and gloppy, but don't want the added weight of fleece, zip on the Outdoor Research Neoplume. This lightweight jacket is packed with PrimaLoft Silver Eco insulation, which offers high-loft thermal efficiency that works even when wet. It's highly compressible, too, making the Neoplume an excellent choice for layering under a shell on your mid-winter excursions. It also makes an excellent choice for comfortable, lightweight wear around town.

Stylish Basic Puffy
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large
From a crowded market of basic mid-layer puffies, this jacket performs very well and stands out from the crowd a bit. Light and compact for a backpack, but warm and excellent at regulating temperature. I normally wear it as an outer jacket, but it would be an excellent mid-layer. Style is understated and a bit perfect for gear heads who normally don't like to have their chest being a bill board for how much money they spent.
UPDATE: Love this jacket. Light rain, heavy wind etc, it has performed very well as an outer layer. (Not water, nor windproof, but keeps you very warm.)
Fit: I am a skinny 6'2" and this jacket does not make me look like the Pilsbury Dough-boy at all. Just enough bulk for the insulation without getting in the way.
