Danno wrote a review of The North Face Redpoint Optimus Insulated Jacket - Men's on December 9, 2010
I've had this jacket for 3 years now, and it is still my go-to jacket when it drops below freezing. I've never liked the puffy jacket look, so this jacket keeps me almost as warm as a puffy while looking like a much more athletic jacket. It also wears great underneath a shell and compresses down to a softball. The material is fairly durable for its light weight, but it was no match for me walking around with my gerber axe, which I carelessly allowed to graze the side material, instantly ripping a couple of inch long tears into the material. Bottom line - this jacket rocks, and so does duct tape. 5'11" 160 lbs, and medium fits perfect.
