I bought this jacket for my wife for skiing. On paper it looks like a hit: Hyvent weave, 600 fill goose down, well-insulated hood, and its made by TNF.Truth be told - it does "shed." The jacket had multiple instances of down feathers coming from the jacket. Before naysayers object, both my wife and I have owned the fabled Nuptse down jacket for a looong time and have never seen feathers.The shell seems cheap - TNF makes great products, but we questioned the long term durability of this jacket and how it would hold up to skiing. The lining was very thin and it seemed that a snag on a chairlift, tree branch etc would tear the jacket.The jacket just seems out of place. The shell lining lacks substance and the jacket definitely sheds feathers - a big red flag.It might be suitable for the skier who hits the hill 3-5 times a year or wants a medium-weight puffy for wearing around town. Otherwise I would steer clear and shell extra money for a more substantial jacket.
We returned it and bought the TNF Snow Cougar from the awesome folks at Backcountry.com.
