- Q & A
Great initial impressions
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- Fit: True to size
When I first grabbed this jacket I thought it might be too light to be able to provide any sort of warmth, but I was wrong! Just putting my arm into the sleeve for a few minutes got toasty pretty quick! The inside of the pockets are lined with a nice felt-like material to provide more warmth for your hands. The collar is lined with the same material by your mouth so if its zipped all the way up it wont bother you. The hood is a nice size and can tightened down nice and easily for a tighter fit!
Sleeves are WAY too long
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Large
I got a large (150lb and 5'6"). The sleeves went beyond my fingertips and it overall looked big in the arms and shoulders. Fit around my waist/hips perfectly. The problem is, if i go down a size, I'm afraid it won't fit around the waist. Other than the size problem, I had great delivery and processing with backcountry. The quality of jacket was nice, I just wish it would have fit right.

Came on time....felt light....was light...airless yet SOOO amazingly warm! I am 5'6" and 135lbs tri-athlete ...also mother of 4 so can't handle the longer coats cause my legs are always moving. Shocked at the lightness and warmth. Lastly, I never carry a purse so chest pocket, 2 zippered exterior and 2 interior pockets are great.....cell phone keys cash credit card...plenty of room for things and movement ;-) color true to picture.
