Impossibly light and packable. I really love the fit of this too, perfect for us tall and slim folk. This is my favorite lightweight puffy on the market right behind the Mountain Hardwear Phantom.

I really love this jacket! The weight of this jacket is just awesome. It is a very light jacket as you can see from the specs. It is always nice to have a jacket that doesn't feel too heavy and isn't too bulky. This jacket does just that. I was up in the mountains during the evening in the fall and was worried that with how light and thin it looked it wasn't going to perform that well. It kept me warm all night though. The stuff sack that you can stuff this jacket into is also really handy. It's really nice for when you are hiking and don't need it you can stuff it away and clip it to your backpack. I was really surprised by how small it was when you packed it down. It really would be a game-changer for backpacking. I would say of all the other jackets I have researched this is a personal favorite.
What is the difference between the GW1 vs GW2 ?
