    Versatile, go-to hoodie

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    Hard to beat the value and versatility of this jacket. 800 FP Down = lightweight? Check. Elastic cuffs and a wrap around hood? Check. More room to move than in most jackets from the other brands? Check. I have worn this thing this winter on my commute, on the hill, while fishing on the river, and at all of the breweries here in Golden, CO. It is made with great fabrics that are comfortable in all of those situations. I notice the occasional feather pops out through the seam, but I don't recall ever owning a down jacket that hasn't had that happen.

    Awesome, But Lots of Feathers Coming Out

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: S
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    I love this jacket, it fits great, The color is good, the wrist cuffs are awesome when it's cold, the hood design will fit over a climbing helmet, it's lightweight, and a great price. I have worn this on easy walks to work, I have worn it out backpacking, I have worn it snowboarding, I have worn it climbing, and in all instances it does it's job excellently, it keeps me warm (and dry, although if it's wet I wear a shell too). I honestly wish I could say more great things about this jacket, because I love it so much.

    BUT, I have had A LOT of feathers come out. Nothing noticeable enough to lose loft, but it is alarming how many feathers fall out every day. Most of the down comes out through the seams on the outside of the jacket, then the cuffs, some comes out from the inside seams, and less comes through the fabric itself. I understand with a down jacket that feathers will come out to some degree, but this really seems like a lot. Doesn't seem like anyone else has this issue, so I'm not sure if it is defective, or normal and not bothersome to the others. I can't wear this jacket while caving, due to losing feathers, there would be a trail following me through the cave.

    I really can't say enough good things about this jacket, and hope that my down loss issue, isn't an issue across the board.

    Hi Aria,

    I'm glad you like the jacket! I'm sorry you're getting so many feathers coming out. If you hit up our warranty department, we'll get that taken care of for you. warranty@sierradesigns.com.

    Thank you!

    Awesome layering piece

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 210lbs

    This jacket has made a great layering piece for my ski season. With the 800 fill power, it stashes well in my pack while I skin and then keeps me warm as I fall my way down the mountain.

    Good value, annoying flaw.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 155lbs

    This is a very preliminary review, but there are some features of this jacket that are worth noting.
    First off, the value offered is outstanding. Down distribution is uniform throughout the entire jacket, and there are no obvious flaws in the stitching. The combination of a 40d shell and almost 6 oz of 800 fp down make this a very warm jacket that should have better durability than some of the ultralight offerings with very light fabric. On my scale a size medium in the green color weighs 14 oz on the nose. The zippers all zip like they should, this packs into its own pocket easily into a size that would make a nice pillow when slipped in the hood of your bag, and the drawstring waist plus the generous elastic cuffs work together to seal out drafts. I tend to get cold hands so the cuffs are something I particularly like.

    Now the negative: The hood is effing terrible. TERRIBLE. The way the neck area is shaped is nice because it easily allows you to layer with something that has a substantial collar (I wear a MH monkey man fleece as a midlayer often, this jacket layers over the substantial and very warm neck perfectly) but as you go up into the hood there is zero adjustment. If you wear this without a brimmed hat and turn your head, you will be staring at the inside of your hood. I would happily pay more money for the same jacket with some very basic hood adjustments that would allow the hood to move with your head and better seal out drafts.

    I really wish Sierra Designs would figure out how to make a hood that actually moves with your head without being constricting. I have an Elite Cagoule from them that is better at keeping me dry than a $400 eVent jacket I used to have, but it also has a hood that is terrible in different ways.

    I almost returned this, but since I wear a lightweight baseball hat almost every time I am outdoors I can live with it for the price. I would rate this jacket 3.5/5 if I could, the hood issue is that annoying and inexcusable. A simple shock cord running from the sides to the back of the hood would have made this a 5/5 for the outstanding value. There is a version of this jacket with no hood available at other retailers.

    Hi Peter. Thank you very much for the honest feedback. To hit this price point, several gives and takes had to be considered. That being said, this is a particularly high-touch area with the jacket, so I will absolutely bring this up with our designers to see if there are some features we could include in the future, while still coming in at such a great price point. Thank you again, and I hope you get years of use out this jacket.
    Cheers,

    After using this quite a bit for daily wear and a recent backpacking trip, I wish I could return this. I shouldn't have to wear a beanie to keep my head warm with a hood up, but I do with this any time there is wind.

    Great Down Jacket, Insane Price

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 200lbs

    This jacket is awesome because the price for the materials you got (800 fill down, lightweight shell material) it is a steal. And they didn't skimp on pockets either. Has great hand pockets, mesh pockets inside to stash things , and a sneaky somewhat hidden chest pocket. It also has elastic cuffs around your wrists to keep the warm air in. This is incredible for additional warmth, but can be uncomfortable with certain watch/shirt combos underneath at times. Hasn't been a deal breaker for me, the warmth you get from them is noticeable so that is worth it to me.

    Fit is great. I'm marking it as true to size, but if anything it's generous. I wear a Large and I'm a Large for TNF and Patagonia jackets as well, so pretty standard fit for the jacket style.
