Right now I'm trying to compare this to the Montbell Thermawrap Pro. They seem pretty similar. I like a lot about the MH Compressor but I'm turned off by all the reports of how thin/fragile it is. The Thermawrap Pro looks like it might be a little bulkier though. Is it? This could be a problem in layering. The Thermawrap Pro claims to pack down to 5.7" x 10.5". How does that compare to the MH Compressor and do you think I could get it smaller than that with a good compression sack? I need a hooded insulated jacket that packs fairly small and is to be worn either as a top layer or under my rain shell on extra cold days on the trail or while hanging out around camp. Also, if you can point me toward a review of the Montbell Thermawrap Pro I would be indebted. It being new reviews have been hard to find. I would appreciate any help. Thanks ~Paul

Can anyone point me towards a review of this jacket? Or do you have any input? Right now I'm trying to compare this to the Mountain Hardwear Compressor jacket. They seem pretty similar.

This (older) model is only 15D. Only the new model is 20D as Jeff stated. The kids version is made of 30D fabric (something that really annoys me). Sure kids are rough on clothes but so are the environments I would be wearing this jacket in. This is the one thing about this jacket that has me still shopping around. Durability is of more concern to me than the small amount of weight savings from a lighter fabric. How does an outdoor company not feel the same way?

Wish the adult version was made of the same thicker material. Sure kids are rough on clothes, but I think the the kinds of activities I participate in (climbing, backcountry hiking, etc.) can be just as rough on clothes. The fact that it's not is making me look at other similar jackets. A shame because I like it otherwise.
