Jacket is the best, lightweight, functional
Hot and Cold -
Still a bit confused. I used this as a mid-layer under my shell for cold mild days while skiing. Not a good ventilation while under the shell. Freezing cold if you remove the shell?!? Guess a better performance will be achieved if you do aerobic or ski at temperatures above 0 celsius. Overall this is a bit less useful mid layer to have.
Has proven itself
I got this for a gift a couple of years ago. This is my go to when I head out to our local XC ski trails. It's lightweight, breaths great, and keeps you warm while your exercising in the cold. I also use this for a mid-layer under my shell for cold mild days on the slopes. I go for a full down mid-lay on really cold days, but I still use the Jakson more often than not. The sleeves allow for easy layering. Overall, this is a super useful tool to have.
Agreed, perfect midlayer
I use this as a mid layer under many jackets, it has turned a lot of my jackets into multi-functional pieces. Great under a gore-tex 2L Shell, also great under my TNF Sentinel wind stopper and my Burton AK Blitzer wind stopper, and Apex Bionic. It really traps the heat for minimal insulation, yet allows your pits and arms to breathe well. Also works well as a stand alone piece even in moderately cold weather if active. North Face rocks another winner with this jacket. I am 5-8 135 and the small fits perfect. Also love the longer sleeves and monkey thumbs I have no complaints, but never do purchasing Summit Series gear.

this is one of my favorite midlayers. the down around your core keeps you toasty, but the fleece sleeves allow you to vent a little when your hiking. I like the long arms with thumb holes feature as well.
