Amazing Hoody/Jacket

Keep you warm and cool. Super lightly, you barely feel it when you have it on you. Totally recommend it. Ordered XL and it fits perfectly.

Great all weather

I only wear this and my northface version doing everything. The jacket keeps you mostly dry in a light rain/heavy rain expect to feel it after a while. But impressed that the jacket doesn't overheat me if the weather starts warming up while I'm out. Super comfy, if I ride my motorcycle its a great under jacket. A little cautious around the arms for short-term wear and tear.

Almost Great

Much to like about this jacket for climbing, but it isn't quite perfect. I'm 6'2"/180 and as with most jackets for me, size M is too tight on the shoulders/chest and size L is a bit too big everywhere else. Between the jacket length, arm length, and stretch, this jacket stays put under a harness better than others I've tried. Hood fits over a helmet too, which is a plus. But the neck is cut a little low and loose, which can let cold air in. And the wind resistance leaves something to be desired -- maybe this is an inherent trade-off given the stretch material.

Nice and warm

My first impression was it was like being in a sleeping bag. I have just used it a few times so far but it has kept me nice and warm.

This jacket is great! Very warm for how light is, and the stretch makes it very comfortable. Only gripe is that it runs a touch big.

Fits Large

I wear medium in Black Diamond T shirts and the Belay Parka, but this hoody fits too large. The hood without a helmet is large and falls down into my eyes. I wish the face opening with the hood up was a little smaller/tighter so less wind can enter. Soft and comfortable material though.

Nice puffy

I have had this puffy for a few weeks and so far so good. I have lots of compliments on the look and the fit is pretty good. The fabric is soft and packs down great in the pack. I have not put it through any durability test crawling through scrub oak or skinning through trees so no insight on that aspect. I'm 6'2" and 230 lb and the XL is great. The arms are finally long enough that when you reach for an item or tighten gear the sleeve doesn't pull up to your forearms.

Great jacket

Very lightweight jacket and solid midlayer option. The fit is athletic/slimmer, so a single layer underneath seems to be the best option. The stretch aspect is awesome for being active!
