MARY O.wrote a review of MontBell EX Light Down Jacket - Women's on July 6, 2011
It's a great backpacking jacket. As you folks know, the limitation with goose down is that it can't get wet (which is the only reason why I gave it four stars instead of five); nonetheless, I'm buying my second jacket. I use my first one for backpacking. You need one set of clothes that stay dry anyway, so I use this jacket to sleep in or when I'm sitting in the tent.
However, I found a two other uses for it. I'm one of those people who's always cold (I live in New England, too), and I was always dragging around a jacket like a dork. I found that this is a great jacket to throw in my purse because it compresses so small. It incredibly warm without the bulk. A very fashionable and artsy friend also said how they really liked the jacket (I have the black one). Also, it's a great jacket for travel for the same reason.
EDIT: One more thing. Because of the lightweight materials, you can only wash this jacket once a year. That's not an issue for backpacking, but it prevents being able to use this jacket for daily use.
