Pros Water resistant hydrophobic down, great DWR coating, well thought-out featuresGreat fit, warm, lightweight, packable, hydrophobic down900+ fill down, warm, lightweight, incredibly compressible, competitively pricedLightweight, stylish, high warmth to weight ratioVery warm, super light, packs small, fits fantastic
Cons 750 fill-power down is good but not as light or lofty as othersExpensiveHood a little tight to fit over a helmet, no hood adjustmentExpensive, not super durableExpensive, draw cord performance not as great as other jackets
Bottom Line Pertex Microlight face fabric, Nikwax treated down, and a quality DWR coating make this one water resistant hoody.A top-notch, super lightweight and warm jacket that works equally well as a mid or terminal layer.This no-nonsense performance model has everything you need in a lightweight package.If you are looking for a warm, light layer for a trip where ounces count, this jacket is a great selection.High quality 850 fill down make this jacket one of the lightest and warmest out there.
