Description

Keep a hand on the Hadron when you're not wearing it; otherwise it might just float away on a breeze.

Highly-packable and feathery-light, this down jacket easily stashes away inside your pack and takes up minimal room (about as much as a small water bottle) until you need it. Pop the insulated hood over your head, let the elastic wrist gaiters cinch around your wrists to keep out the draft, and hunker down; the men still look like they have a ways to go.

Excellent down pullover

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Once I've used it enough to say "put it through the wringer" I'll update my review. So far, I've climbed in it three long trad days and used it for standard crags and hiking a number of times. I'm very impressed with the quality so far. The climbing I did required some chimney work and an average number of cracks/arm dings, but the fabric is as soft and unmarked as ever. It is very packable into its own pocket. My only complaint is that once packed, the pocket does not have a loop so you can't hang it from your harness without more gear. Major oversight, and the reason for 4 stars.
The hand pouch is warm and so nice. In general the jacket is very warm for how thin it is (850 after all).
The hood fits over my helmet and stays put. It also somehow fits over my unhelmeted head and stays put. Way to go Stoic.
The cuffs are tight, and that is a good thing for my uses anyway. As other reviewers mentioned, while pulling it over you can tell the arm/chest area is tight, but once it is on it is a good fit (i.e. it shouldn't be any tighter). I'm 5'9'' and ~130 and the waist/stomach area is too big in the M but good for layers so I kept it though I suspect a S actually fits.
The discontinued purple-y color is remarkable, and so is the yellow/green lining and blue snaps. But all together they make a nice look, surprisingly. I have had several other climbers ask me where I got this.

Will this jacket keep me warm in WISCONSIN winters?
they can get very brutal at times. Need a jacket to hold up to them.

Hi Kim,
Yes this jacket will keep you warm in most winters. The jacket has 850-fill goose down to make it nice and toasty!

Responded on

From what I've heard, nothing will keep you warm in a Wisconsin winter.

Responded on

This is probably too late for you, Kim, but I don't think you should get this for your winter jacket unless you get it as a layer. There's no question it is excellent down quality and will provide warmth, but it is not meant to block a ton of wind, so you'd need a shell over it. Also, it is nicely water resistant, but from what I've heard of Wisconsin, you need something waterproof.

small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

Fits small. Like a tight sweatshirt. I'm not busty, but it barely fit over my chest+tshirt. No room for any other layers. Although it may be warm (don't know, as I returned mine), it is also very thin, so don't be surprised when you pull it out.

Get 1 size up

  • Gender: Female
  • Fit: Runs small

My wife is very happy with the fit and weight.
I'm happy with the price.
Buy 1 size larger than normal.
Hand cuffs are quite tight, and the stitching goes all the way through. The amount of down is also fairly low compared to other similar jackets

Warm and light, but strangely sized

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

I used this jacket on a couple of camping trips and it was perfect for staying warm at night. It is extremely lightweight, so it would also be very good for backpacking. The pockets are wonderfully roomy and the wrists are nice and tight, which will be good for snow/wind/rain. I ordered both the M and L. I usually wear a M, but the M was too tight in the hips (I could wear it, but layers would have been difficult) although it fit well in the bust. The L was good in the hips but too large in the bust. I ended up keeping it because I tried on lots of other down jackets in various stores and ran into the same problem - apparently, even though I am busty, my upper body to hip ratio does not match typical jacket sizes. Since this jacket was no better or no worse size-wise than others I tried, I kept it since it was lighter and warmer and the price was so good. I was not thrilled with the pink color.

I'm not sure which size to order. I'm a...

I'm not sure which size to order. I'm a 36 bust 31 waist and 38 hip which is almost a medium. I plan on layering and I don't enjoy a fit that is too snug. I have a sturdy frame at 5'6 150#. Will the large be too big?

Responded on

Hey there, thanks for your question. I would go with the size Large, that way you will be able to have layers under this jacket if needed. The size Medium would be very snug if trying to fit a layer. Hope this helps!

Responded on

The large is a perfect fit and there is plenty of room for layers! Thank you!

Love it!!!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

BUT just so you know the color is not pink or fuchsia as it appears in the pic. It's more of a blackberry/boysenberry purple. Not even close to pink...closer to grape. I really like it though! It's a little snug to get into but then it fits perfect and is really warm and cozy. Can't wait to layer it this winter under my down jacket! I live in Alaska so this will come in very handy for hiking and early fall weather! I love that it has the cuffs on the sleeves so it keeps the cold and snow out. I'm 5.6, a muscular and solid, 170lb. I bought a large and it fits perfect! It is fitted so it is a bit snug getting it on over the chest area but then it fits wonderfully! Normally I'm a pretty solid medium so I would stay this does run a full size small, as the large is just right, and pretty form fitting. Great addition to my layering pieces. As for the static. I have long hair, and it is a bit staticy but no worse then any of my other down jackets. Would totally recommend it. In addition to being warm, its also very cute an stylish looking. It's like a really thin, down, super comfy, warm, hoodie!

Lovelovelove this jacket!

I love this jacket for everything: wind, rain, snow, whatever. I use it primarily for playing outside with little children, so there's lots of stop and go and I'm always the right temperature. As for the static issue that I read froom other reviewers, I haven't had that problem. It doesn't seem to have any more static than my other coats. I havent washed it yet, so cant report on that. I love the tight cuffs on the sleeves, as they keep the sleeves in place and snow out. They don't feel so tight if you flip them under. It fits so well, even for someone who is curvier like myself. It's a little tough to get over my chest when taking it off, but I just pull up the hood and pull it straight off. I'm 5'6'' and 155lbs and the meduim fits me nice and close, but not too tight. If you need a great all weather jacket, this is the one for you!!

Pretty Impressed

I got this pullover late this ski season after realizing that the Cascades are super cold and wet and my Nano Puff wasn't up to the challenge. I'd been lusting after this and when it went on sale, I snagged it in a Medium. I'm super pleased.

First off, it's very warm. Very, very warm. Enough to start sweating while skiing, enough to wear on it's own on a cold day hiking, enough to use as my main winter sweater. I layer it under a core-tex thinsulate shell for skiing and that's almost uncomfortably warm!

I love that the kangaroo pocket is insulated in the front and the back. That way you can warm your hands without exposing the inner patch of pocket to the elements. Perfect.

I love the hidden pocket inside the chest. It's deep and has a hidden zipper- hiding my dollars for sure!

The sleeve gaskets are tight but that works well for skiing. I can't comfortably bunch the sleeves up to my elbow but when I need an 850fp coat I rarely do that.

The hood can fit under my helmet and has elastic so it stays put.

It is fitted. It took me a few tries to get into how it fits but it's very flattering. The seams make me look feminine while being able to move comfortably. And it's long! It covers most of my butt- love that! It doesn't fit like a regular sweatshirt or pullover- it's definitely form-fitting.

All in all, I'd give it 4.5 stars because the warmth and fit are really nice. I take away a half-star because it is a little tight around the mid-section, but it still looks and feels good.

I brought it on a trip back to CA and my mom fell in love! I ordered my mom a L; I have a M. We're both totally into it! I'm trading in my nano puff for sure.

Feels like a jacket that I already own..

This jacket is ridiculously light (amazing what taking away a zipper and wrapping nice feathers in pertex can do), but doesn't really add anything new or different to my gear closet. Granted, I am better equipped than most, but weight aside, I already have a pretty solid layering puffy. This jacket wasn't SUPERMEGAAWESOME enough on its own to warrant replacing the preexisting jacket.

I bought it because of all the 4 and 5 star reviews, even though I knew from the fill rating/weight that it wouldn't be the standalone, belay-puffy-jacket I actually needed. I guess that's a shame on me decision more than anything else.

Two gripes: 1. It is rather fitted through the waist and hips, which makes getting it on and off a little bit of a chore (once it is on, though, it is quite flattering and form-fitting). 2. The forearms were too tight in the XS even though the rest of the jacket fit perfectly. For all that the arms were nice and long and the shoulders cut fairly broad, I felt like I had sausage arms.
Granted, I climb, so I have muscles, but I'm not that jacked.

It's a solid jacket (especially for the price), but not 5-star worthy.

okay

  • Gender: Female

I really did like this coat except the static was too overwhelming. it fits snug on the hips [flattering], I love how warm it is, yet, my hair was just too crazy from the static ~ something with this lightweight material, still a great warm coat if you can get around the static It is great to put under coats as an insulating layer as with no zipper, it helps keep the warm in on the coldest of outings.

okay

Perfect for layering

Use this under a shell for skiing and have been kept quite warm. I agree that the cuffs are a bit tight but they can be strtched out if need be. The cut is flattering as it flairs just slightly out around the ribs. Very lightweight and packs up small.

Just what I needed

I really like this coat, love that its a pullover so I don't have to worry about getting too fat and buttons letting air in the from the front. It covers my lower back, so its tailored with that in consideration. Also its super light, as a backpacker, it will come in handy. But I have yet to use this on a backpacking trip, just been using it this winter on windy/ snowy days. I"m not going to rely on the water resistant nature that it claims to have, but haven't experienced any issues with it in wet conditions yet-provided those wet conditions being snow. Also, love the color, and I'm a little women-5'3" and 130, the medium fit perfectly-was worried it may be too big, but glad I went with that instead of a small. Not complaints on this, but I admit, I'm scared of ripping it.

Its also not as puffy as it looks in the picture, but I like that about it. Still does the job.

good jacket!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Initial impression was that it was a bit small and hard to put over my head since it has a feminine fit to it. I'm 5'2'', 130pounds and I ordered a small. My shoulder are wider than the waist area so it's a tight fit trying to get in on.

Once it's on, it great. I can move my arms all around and not worry about the material pulling one side or the other. Cuff for the wrist are fine for me but I do have smaller wrists.

This jacket is very lightweight (7oz with a hood!) and I will be including it in my ultralight gear for sure. The material seems a bit thin and I don't know how resistant it will be, but that's what you get for the weight.

I've included pictures to help you see the fit better. I'm by no means skinny and was scared to ordering a small. If you enjoy baggier, I would suggest to go a size up.


good jacket!

Tight Cuffs

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I really like this jacket, but the wrists are just a little too tight. I recommend sizing up so you can layer underneath this jacket. I ended up returning this jacket.

Yes all over

  • Gender: Female

Ive been skeptical about getting a down jacket without a zipper in the front, but for the price, down count, and pertex...its worth pulling it over your head. I have extra long hair, but when backpacking or climbing its pulled up so static isnt an issue really. My bf got a new down for this winter and im proud to say mine blows his out of the water for the same price!

Great Jacket

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This jacket is great. I was skeptical at first because it seemed a little thin but it kept me surprisingly warm on a recent camping trip. The hood, elastic cuffs and adjustable string at the waist locks in body heat when the temperatures get really chilly. I also like how lightweight and compact it gets. My only complaint is that it still smells like campfire even after washing it. I just ordered the Nikwax down wash that the care instructions recommends so maybe that will do the trick. Overall, I'm very happy with it!
