Conduit coating over 800+ loft down insulation? What a great concept! But I think MHW have let themselves down (no pun intended) a little bit.

The fit of the jacket per se is okay - no less/more bulky than other MHW jackets I own. The hood is problematic - make no mistake. It really is big, which while great for wearing over a helmet, it lacks sufficient "adjustability" to be practical.

It is is warm, but keep in mind there's not a lot of down in there and you'll have to make up for that with an extra mid-layer in realy cold weather.

I like it...but I don't love it. The concept is perfect - add in more adjustability (especially in the hood), double the down fill...and the reality would be perfect too.

This is an awesome bit of kit. 100 lumens is sufficeint for just about anything you'll encounter, but the ability to dim all the light settings is a standout feature.

The button lock-out is great - I thought it unnecessary, but when it's crammed into a pack, it's amazing how easily the light will turn on without it.

Negatives? Nothing of signficance other than I think the quality of the white broad LED beam could have been better - it seems to have a dark spot in the middle.
