Great jacket, ran a little big for me and had to return it. I have a smaller size now and it is a great jacket. Have used it snowboarding in 40 degree sunny weather and it kept me very warm.

Great Lightweight Jacket
I ordered this jacket for my wife, and she really loves it. First of all, it is incredibly lightweight - she says that it feels almost like she is wearing a warm cloud with it on. This is because of the high quality, high-loft (800 fill) down that Patagonia puts in to it. You can also easily stuff it away, and it really does compress to a tiny size if you need to put it into a backpack or suitcase. The hood is generous, and easy to cinch down on a windy day. My only recommendation for this jacket would be to consider pairing it with a good quality rain shell if you are in a wet climate (hello Pacific Northwest). With that said though, it is water resistant enough to stand up to a light drizzle or a quick jaunt from the car without absorbing much at all. Build quality is great, although I expect nothing less from Patagonia. Overall, a great jacket either as a a standalone, or used as a layer.

This is an amazing jacket. So lightweight and as warm as my puppy Northface jacket that I look like the Pillsbury Dough boy in. My only complaint, and I admit I am hard on clothing, is that I already have a small tear in it. wish it were more tearproof.

Super Well and Well Designed
I'm 5'4" and 125 lbs and the small fits me perfectly. It's snug enough to keep the warmth in but I can still squeeze a solid base layer underneath without restricting my mobility. The jacket is way warmer than I expected. Did a 1/2 hike through Acadia here in New England and got caught in a little drizzle and the water proofing proved better than I expected. You can't go wrong.
