- I recently used this jacket above 3000 feet in a blizzard and minus 12, I had a base layer and softshell underneath and was super warm. The down fluffs up really fast and wraps you in that familiar warm embrace any good quality down jacket does. The fit is slim but with the ability to tailor the fit when needed to cover various body shapes. It is slightly longer in the rear which is welcome in windy conditions and the cuffs are elasticated so easily pull over gloves to keep the elements out. The jacket feels robust even though it is super light, I scrambled over countless boulders and rocks and it didn't leave a mark on it.
- My only concern with the jacket is the cost. While I understand 1000 fill power down is more expensive to pack in the baffles I still think the price point is a little on the high side. Saying that I wouldn't give it back...
