light and compressible
I'm very happy with this jacket. From the pictures I was a little concerned about it being too bulky, but it's very lightweight and compresses easily. Almost bought a synthetic insulated jacket, but after reading some reviews and after trying this jacket out in the cold, down is the way to go! Much warmer, easily compressible, maintains its shape nicely after unpacking. Just don't get it wet, may want a separate shell over this for really wet days. The finish of the material is more durable than other puffy jackets, but remains light and doesn't make the jacket too heavy.

Men's North Face Catalyst Jacket
Love the jacket - it's so warm and comfortable. Fits really well and looks great. I'd definitely buy it again and shop at Altrec.........love the color, really functional.

I bought it for my husband. very light, looks great, unfortunately he thinks that it"s not going to be good enough for a really cold winter. As for a website: quick and efficient....I'll be coming back for some more products

The best jacket ever
I love this jacket... have wanted a puffer like coat but hate the bulk... stop looking this is the best one out there. It is super warm with the 800 fill and there is absolutely no bulk. I wear a 42reg suitcoat and the large is perfect with enough room for a layer or two. It can be packed down to nothing and never gets wrinkled.

This is a very good jacket, very light and extremely warm. It has a hoodie that is helpful, and it has an extra front pocket that i find pretty useful.
