I'm only giving this jacket a 4 star rating because the sizing is a little strange. I am 5'7" 185lbs and the large is quite snug on me. I kept it because the XL is too loose. Mountain Hardware jackets are a little hit and miss in terms of the sizing. I recently bought the Typhoon rain jacket and returned the Large for a Medium because the large was too big. I have mountain hardware shirts that are M and L and pants that are also M and large. Moral of the story is read the reviews before you buy. They are typically right on the money and will help you get the right size.

I have really enjoyed this jacket. It is extremely lightweight yet very warm. Overall i am very satisfied with this product as I am with 99% of my other MH products. A couple things to consider. I'm 5'7" with a muscular build. I had to go with the large as the medium was just too tight. The sleeves could have been better engineered in my opinion. There are down jackets out there that have some kind of elastic or fitted material to keep the sleeves from hanging down past your hands. This jacket doesn't have that. In addition, while it isn't a big deal, MH should have considered adding zippers to ALL the pockets rather than just the top one. The flap is fine, but I would prefer to have a zipper to keep my stuff secure.

I was torn between the Rocky Mountain Altitude 50 and the Slayer 70. The Altitude had a half an inch less travel than the Slayer and frankly I thought the Slayer just looked tougher. In the end I chose the Altitude over the Slayer as I believe it is a better all-around mountain bike. The altitude is lighter, 28.8lbs (weighed on my shipping scale by me) and I believe the Slayer is over 30lbs, which makes climbing easier and better on the Altitude. I've had the bike for a week and have been very happy with it's performance both up and down the trails.
