Is this jacket windproof?
What is the difference between this jacket and the Kepler?
Thanks! Will there be any new colors for 2011-2012?
Does anybody know when the new colors for this season will be available?
I am 5'8 and 137 lbs with a chest size of 36. Would a S or M be better for me? I plan to have a baselayer and possibly a Patagonia R2 underneath.
I know this comes in XS so I was wondering what size I should get.
I am 5'8 and 135 lbs. Would a small fit me better or should I opt for an XS?
Great fleece. I am 5'8 and 135lbs and the small fits perfectly. This is the best mid-layering fleece out there IMO. I have tried the R3 and R4 from patagonia, and while they a great jackets, the fit of those jackets are a little bulky. The fit on the Monkey Man is trim and works great under a shell.
Thanks guys. I actually already have the R2, and I want something a bit warmer for night skiing. I will be wearing this under a shell, so the wind blocking properties is not a need. What would be a step up to the r2 in terms of insulation/warmth but is still low bulk? I have the R4 but I find it a bit bulky. I am thinking about adding the Monkey Man fleece as it looks to have a more athletic fit than the R4.
Would this be warmer than the patagonia r2?
Will these be available in other colors?
whats the difference between this jacket and the welder insulated? which one is warmer?
bill, is the fit on this the same as backcountry event jacket?
Just received my jacket a few days ago after getting a great price on SAC.
The fit on this is true to size compared to the older backcountry gear which normally ran small. I am 5'8 and 135lbs and the small fits perfectly.
I was initially hesitant on ordering this jacket as the neon orange wasnt my thing, but after receiving it, I kinda dig it! I think this would be a great mid-weight layering piece or a stand alone.
