Roman Suswrote a review of Montane North Star Down Jacket - Men's on September 17, 2013
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
This is my favourite light down jaket. I've bought this jaket in 2001 in red colour. Size M. My height is 1,8 m (5,9 ft), weight 70 kg (155 lb).
This jaket is quite warm for it's weight. I had been using it at temperature from 40 F to 0 F with fleece jaket. During all that time all zips and ties were working perfectly. Front zip (even some complain about it) is also very good, you get used to it very fast. It's two-ended so it's very comfortable when you sit in the car or for waist harness. Also the jaket is a little bit longer than others of the same kind. The back of jaket is longer so it's covering your back. Even when you bend, it doesn't. Down is not coming out, like in all good down jakets. Upper shell is not worn out at cuffs and sleeves, what is logic for that price. In 2012 my brother bought the same jaket. His weight is 83 kg (183 lb) and height 1,87 m (6,1 ft). The model from 2012 has inside pocket, what is an advantage. It would be good if there were one more inside pocket made of net.
