This is a 5 star, fantastic jersey with one issue... It just holds the stink. I don't know why, maybe I did something bad like ride all day and throw it in the back of my truck too long or something. Washing it does nothing.

As for the look, fit, material, and construction.... Its great. I may order another.

Solid lightweight hooded puffy. Seems well made, nice down fill, compresses well. Fit seems slightly large. I am 5'9 145 and small is perfect. Fits over my softshell for backcountry/belay usage and under my hard shell for cold-ass conditions. Good details, pockets, hood design. Cheaper than the patagonia down hoodie, and a little warmer/useful as a belay jacket. Not as light though.

Got the blue to add a little cheer to a cold day. Its a little shinier than I would have hoped for, maybe should have gone gargoyle.

Short backpacking trips, ease of use, and girlfriend?

buy a remote canister stove, msr wind pro, snow peak bf, brunton vesta, optimus stella, etc.

Don't get me wrong, I like my liquid fuel stove and my ultralight canister top stove, but there is a time and place for everything, and if I owned one stove it would be a remote canister with a fuel preheat coil. Funny that its the one kind I dont have.

oh, I'd buy the snow peak bf, large burner if it was my money

Great bag for the price. The arroyo moved to a baffled construction rather than the sewn through of last year, making it very similar to the hydrogen at a better price point. It is well designed, uses ultralight fabric and 800 fill power, quality construction. Temp rating is spot on, compacts to a nice small size. What more do you really want? Um, I guess the color is kind of bland, but whatever.

Nice jacket. Cut seems a little big on me, color for atlantic/haze/radish WAY way off, look at the powderhorn site for more realistic colors. Hood is removable and nice & puffy. Definitely a town jacket, though it apparently has dwr I can't imagine the seams holding up through much weather. Nice cuffs & alpaca lined pockets. Gets me through the snow to my car, and from my car to the bar. Made in China.
