- Q & A
Cozy as can be
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: Extra Large
This is my first piece of clothing built like the Smartwool Propulsion 60. I love the warmth of the lower half and arms, and respect the tough upper half. I've toured in this, and generally either over heat, or freeze, but this jacket seemed to keep my temps regulated. If I am just sitting around, it's quite cozy.
My only gripe, is that the lower half, fits a bit wide. I would have expected Smartwool to have tapered this section in a little, to accommodate for their athletic intent.
Other than that, the quality is great and the warmth is awesome.
