Taco Beanwrote a review of MontBell Alpine Light Down Parka - Men's on January 7, 2013
I bought it simply for casual use, and am impressed by its wind resistance and how toasty you can get under its hood. Great for travelling, it compresses well into an accompanying pouch (it does not pack down into its own pocket). If I'm just walking around town with this jacket and a warm baselayer, it needs to be well below 30F or I'll overheat.
The fabric is alarmingly thin and I am paranoid about its durability, but this is my second winter with no problems. A few times I've come across feathers but no obviously damaged seams.
I am 6'0, 160lbs, and the medium is cut the way I want it: almost trim if I'm wearing a thick sweater underneath. Doesn't fall much past my waist. If you prefer your coats on the roomy size or need extra length, you might size up.
I agree the fabric is shiny, but the olivegreen version of this jacket masks the shine and doesn't have that garbage bag look.
It's annoying that there is no collar hang loop, but not annoying enough to lose a rating star.
