At Vantage in Washington about a year ago.
I see in the ground down jackets mention of "it2" down fill. Does anyone know what power this fill is? 550? 650? 800? Inquiring minds want to know.
This is a nice, lightweight layer, I like it. Its comfy and whatnot and fits pretty close to right, little long in the body to get the sleeves to fit the way I like but considering I will be tucking it in half the time and it likely won't untuck, it's really not a big deal. As others have noted, the thumb holes are a little small for a mens shirt but not so bad as to be useless. I was on Rainier this weekend in every type of weather known to man from still and sunny to near white out, windy conditions. Seemed to work fine. I have an REI brand lightweight layer that is going to be seeing a lot more drawer time. This one fits better and is more comfy. Gave it it's first wash and hang dry, fit has not changed. So far so good. I gotta be honest, I really like brands that I like and along with Mountain Hardwear, I have always been pleased with Backcountry.com product and service. So buy one already, I can't do this all day.
