Lifaloft Hooded Insulator Jacket

The Helly Hansen Women's Lifaloft looks and even feels like a down puffy, but since it's actually a synthetic insulator, this jacket can stand up to snowy weather better. Unlike down, synthetic retains its loft better when drenched in moisture, so this jacket stays warm when you're walking under snowfall. The DWR-treated nylon shell adds water- and wind-resistance for extra defense against winter weather.

This is my new favorite jacket

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 3"

I got the purple (amethyst) and it's gorgeous in person. The material is nice, soft, swishy but not obnoxiously so, and definitely warm for the weight. However, it wouldn't work by itself for freezing temperatures -- it's more for cool/cold-but-not-frigid weather. The stair-step stitching is nice and different from a lot of insulated jackets. This is nice to wear just as street outerwear -- I haven't tried it yet hiking or backpacking, mainly because I like it too much to get it dirty!

Okay - depending on what you want it for

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 5"

I bought this as a midlayer for backcountry skiing or hiking, and an outer layer for mountain running overnight in ultras. It's just okay. Fundamental problem: the jacket is marketed as having some of the most highly packable insulation. Except it doesn't have a stuff sack and doesn't pack into it's own pocket. Not sure why HH takes pride in packability and then doesn't offer an option for packing. Second, the jacket is a bit short. It's fine under a shell, but as an outer layer, it's over my belly when I lift my hands. I'm 5'5", so not particularly tall. And third, it's not that warm - more like a heavy flannel than an insulated jacket. I found it too light to wear on descents skiing. The fabric feels nice, and the interior stuff pockets are nice. But I am now wearing this as a casual wear piece - outer layer if it's in the upper 40s, or mid layer walking around town in single digits. If you're looking for something that is warm AND functional for sports, this isn't it. But if you just want a cute, lightweight jacket, and you aren't too long-waisted, this is fine.
