Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Super warm. When I first got it i was worried it was going to be too thin, but its more than warm enough. Very compactable. Its actually too warm to use while I'm moving, if I'm climbing or slogging through snow I'll start sweating profusely with it on. That obviously depends on you and your layers though.
I thought I ruined it during a winter slog up mount hood: sweated so much it made the down clump and lose all loft. I washed with nikiwax down wash. then dried it. Still had clumps and no loft. So put it in drier on No heat, with four tennis balls, which amazingly restored the loft of the down.
I treated it with Nikiwax "down proof" which is supposed to make the down repel water. Seems to work pretty well, hasn't got damp since. Still best puffy I've ever seen.
