4 5

This jacket is quite warm (very warm if you are keeping active), very light, easily compressible and weatherproof.

I am 6 foot, 215 lbs and ordered the XL so that I would be able to layer it over my lighter back-country ski setup. The idea was to use this jacket for lunch breaks, delays, inclement weather etc.

It is perfect as an XL for both the above purpose and also as a standalone jacket.

The 3 front pockets are perfect, the hood is very comfortable, and warm, and the overall design perfect as a backcountry layering warm jacket.

This jacket will find itself handily stuffed in my pack and put into action at on-trail lunch and dinner breaks, extended stops during ski tours and any other time when some extra warmth is needed.

I find it so comfortable and light that it is also becoming my lunch time cold weather - go-out-and-go-for-a-walk jacket.

Pros:
* Light weight (549 grams on my digital scale)
* Warm (actualy too warm when I am active)
* Weatherproof (good in rain and drizzle)
* Not made with down. (keeos warm even if wet)

Cons:
* Could use an extra interior pocket.
* Zippers sometimes a little fiddly

I would not pay full price for it though. I find most of the ones at the same or more price point (lightweight belay jackets) are over-priced. Wait for a sale and then get it. Awesome jacket if you can get it at the right price.
