Overall I liked this jacket; the outer fabric seemed very durable, as well as water resistant, and it fit trimly, but was large enough so I could wear a base layer and microfleece under it. With 5 oz of down fill, I bought this jacket because it was supposed to be one of the warmest on the market, which was a priority for me. However, the hood has a brim, and instead of elastic around the face it has pull cords to tighten the hood around the face. I did not like the pull cords in my face at all. The brim got in the way when I tried this on under a waterproof shell with a hood/brim. Also, this jacket does not compress down very small; it was about the size of two Nalgene bottles placed side by side. It is also much heavier than other "ultralight" puffies. I ultimately returned it for the Arcteryx Cerium LT, which I love!

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 5"
Weight: 134 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I haven't actually worn this yet; that's why I couldn't give it five stars. But when I tried it on after receiving it at home by mail I fell in love immediately. Very lightweight and seems like it will be super warm. The hood fits nicely even with my hair up in a bun. I really like that it has a cinch cord to tighten the elastic around my face if it's windy. I am a size 6 and the medium is comfortable with a microfleece sweater underneath. I could probably even wear a small (I am small chested).
