This is a nice, lightweight layer, I like it. Its comfy and whatnot and fits pretty close to right, little long in the body to get the sleeves to fit the way I like but considering I will be tucking it in half the time and it likely won't untuck, it's really not a big deal. As others have noted, the thumb holes are a little small for a mens shirt but not so bad as to be useless. I was on Rainier this weekend in every type of weather known to man from still and sunny to near white out, windy conditions. Seemed to work fine. I have an REI brand lightweight layer that is going to be seeing a lot more drawer time. This one fits better and is more comfy. Gave it it's first wash and hang dry, fit has not changed. So far so good. I gotta be honest, I really like brands that I like and along with Mountain Hardwear, I have always been pleased with Backcountry.com product and service. So buy one already, I can't do this all day.

I had the Mountain Hardware sub-zero coat before I got the phantom. I like the sub-zero, it was very warm and durable but way too puffy and bulky. I checked around and tried on all the major brands 800 fill coats. What I wanted was something warm, durable, compressable that would fit under my hard shell (I live in Washington State). I like a lot of the features of this coat. It's compressable, warm, the lined collar is nice but as with all 800 fill coats, the exterior material is a little suspect. I also hate the pocket zippers, they almost always get caught on the material inside the pocket and so you have to be uber careful and there is almost no way I can see opening the pockets with gloves on. It's really warm and fits great. I have used it on cross country ski trips, alpine scrambles and one trip up to Muire on Rainier.
