This is an excellent down piece. It is super comfortable and fits great. Most down jackets don't fit me right, the sleeves are all too short. But not the Guide's down Sweater, great sleeves and it doesn't ride up when I move my arms, the slight droptail hem is helpful too. Feathers still manage to poke through the fabric which I find somewhat upsetting, but not that often or extreme. The price is great too, for a jacket that fits great, has awesome pockets and zipper pulls and features. Its warmth is addictive and you'll find you wear it all the time.

Like another reviewer said, it doesn't open easily with one hand, but it will using one hand and say, pressing the bottom of the handle against some part of your anatomy or clothing. Anyways, I'm glad it doesn't open easily since I've had other one hander's that open by themselves while banging around on your gear loop (now that is dangeous) the spatha wont do this. Its not that sharp, but is sharp enough. Its tough, and fulfills its usage parameters.

I picked up this shirt and I'm glad I did. Nice pockets (lots of them and cool hidden ones). Only complaints are it pills a little in moderate abrasion areas, and it is not that cool in tropical climes. It was decent tho and has good ventilation and is just about the most technical shirt I've seen. Good stretch fabric too. double layer elboes. Multi hidden pockets good for stashing your passport etc.
