I love the Lowe Alpine packs, they seem over engineered and very well made with exceptional adjustability. My only complaint is the lack of colors of this particular pack and the inaccurate color depiction of the blue pack. In real life it is more of an aqua color than a dark blue as pictured. Love it though, great pack!!!

Warm, smooth and comfortable. Well made, 2 negatives: No butt flap and the thumb holes on the sleeves. Not fond of either, and the wife and I are working on a way to fix both problems. Cut and re-hem the sleeves pretty simple, butt flap will take some reengineering but for the price on sale, hard to pass up the deal.

Very impressed with this jacket, I have had other old school down jackets, they were heavy and did not compress well. This thing compresses into its own pocket and makes a nice pillow. Incredibily warm and when I took it out into a mild rain we were having, it just beaded up and did not soak through. Good baffle construction thoughout other than the seam right under each arm, which is smart thinking for a heat dump. No real snow skirt, but does have draw cords at the waist to tighten it down. Runs pretty true to size. 5'11" at 190 pounds 32 waist and 45.5 chest, I ordered XL, I like a bit of room and longer sleeves. Hate it when I put a pack on and the sleeves shorten up 2 inches. The more I look at it, the more impressed at the design. The one negative is now my wife wants one.
