Great for backcountry adventures
I bought this jacket for a light weight and compact source of warmth when backpacking in the snow and cooler seasons. I was able to test it out on an overnight backpacking trip in the snow in around 20 degree weather. It was very nice to pull this jacket out of my backpack and put it on while setting up my tent and tinkering around in my tent. I also wore it when I slept and it was very comfortable and warm, especially with the hood. This is a great source of compact warmth.

I love the jacket, especially for the value! It is light weight, comfortable, and very warm. This jacket layers very nicely but when it gets too warm takes up no space in my pack. I would recommend this to anyone who partakes in outdoor activities that require layering. I used this jacket fly fishing on a very cold and windy day and it kept me very warm. Also a great jacket to wear around. I can't wait to continue to test it out!

I bought this jacket after freezing my tail off at a nordic race in Canada. The OR hoody is great; even with the hoody down the collar/hood keep my neck toasty. This piece is surprisingly light- also like the trim fit vs std down jackets.

Overall, this jacket is awesome. It is warm, comfortable, and it fits perfectly. I'm 6'4" and 200 pounds; I got an XL and it is perfect with a fleece underneath. Honestly, it is the perfect jacket for me. This morning in Minnesota it was -30, -45 windchill and with a fleece underneath, it kept me nice and warm. Its very breathable, I stay warm and not hot. It super compressible, and even though it probably isn't supposed to, it stuffs down nice enough to double as a pillow. Buy one--its guaranteed forever.
