It has kept me dry so far. I love the simplicity of only one pocket. The fit is "athletic"... I.e. if you are pretty muscular, this would be a good option. If you are super skinny, it may be a bit big. I fluctuate between 160-180 and the jacket fits so that I can layer an R1 fleece and a primaloft 60g jacket under it. My only gripe is that the zipper pull broke.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 165 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

The jacket seemed to be very well built and attractive. It had all the features one would expect from a high end belay jacket. My only complaint was the fit; the chest and underarm area were very tight. I ended up sending it back and purchasing the Haglofs Mojo instead (highly recommend). If this jacket fits you, I would recommend it. A medium did not fit my 39-40 inch chest.

I was in the market for a very heavy, but not an expedition weight belay jacket. I tried the Mountain Equipment K7, but the fit was very small in the chest area. In years past the EB Peak XV has been a great option, but this jacket ended up having more down and it weighs approximately 10 ounces less. You will pay a premium.... I believe the price to be totally worth it. The fit is perfect for me (5'11", 165 lbs, medium); it is big enough to comfortably layer. The zipper is about as smooth as they come. The fabric is really nice and light. The blue color looks great. Everything just works. Highly recommended.

Meh, poor fit and questionable construction! I am 5'11", 165 lbs. I wear a 32-32 pant. I bought the medium. I wore these for a couple hours with a soft shell and a heavy baselayer underneath. Two things happened 1) the seam tape ripped at the bottom of the zipper. 2) The crotch is cut really high and made for quite the uncomfortable situation. I was not abusing these pants. I was hunting and wore them to keep dry. All I did was walk around for 4-5 hours. They were also a little short. I don't feel like these bibs can accommodate layering. I am sending them back.
