Pros Durable, weather resistant, athletic cut, good movement, versatileVery warm for the weight, highly compressible, durable, versatile, comfortableIncredibly light, compact, warm for its size and weight, packs into its own pocket, recycledLightweight, well placed synthetic insulation, versatileVersatile, comfortable, warm for the weight
Cons Narrower baffles compress down; slightly lower quality 750 fill downLess stylish, harder to layer underneath a hardshell jacketNo way to cinch the hood, lighter materials are more fragileLess durable than some models, expensiveLess water resistant, difficult to stuff into stow pocket but includes stuff sack
Bottom Line We continue to love this hoody for its durability and versatility in our quiver of mountain apparelWe loved it for its warmth-to-weight, comfort, and excellent versatilityAn excellent insulating layer or standalone jacket for mild temperatures and for those that value light weightAn incredibly well-made and versatile down jacket, light enough for layering or useful alone in milder, less rugged conditionsWe enjoyed it on a variety of adventures; it is well made and warm for the weight
