Stylish, technical, simple
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- Fit: True to size
- Height: 5'9"
- Weight: 145lbs
Bought this as a gift and have heard nothing but good things back about it. Fit is true to size, material is technical and going to keep you warm on any type of mission, and simple design is perfect so you aren't digging in multiple pockets looking for different things on your ski missions. Also great for wearing into town in the fall or spring. A true mid-layer quiver killer.

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large
- Height: 5'10"
- Weight: 150lbs
I am 5'10 and 150lbs with an average build and the large fits very comfortably, I could fit into a medium if I wanted a more trim fit. What made me purchase this is the hood design, I like that it doesn't have a zipper since I wanted to use this for colder days and touring. No zipper means nothing rubbing against your chin, and the hood has a snug fit, not loose. For touring being able to put the hood helps keep the wind and weather out while keeping my head warm. If it's a nicer day touring I'll keep the hood down and it works like a buff. For resort days I pair this with a Flylow Tech Flannel. With the hood down it keeps the weather out. I use a Flylow Quantum jacket. The hood down fills the neck of the jacket and keeps the cold out and the warmth in.
