I got this as a p[art of the North Face Zip-in system, as it fits into the super TNF Mountain Light gore-tex shell I already have. Together, they make a superior package. I've been using the MtnLight with a Redpoint jacket and it is sometimes too warm. The Salathe is a nice complement and it is featherweight (xl size- 417g) and comfortable (still plenty warm, as the Mountain Light is not really all that light (xl size 737g with the zip hood installed)). Being fleece, the sleeves are grabby when wearing it over certain fabrics (the slick Redpoint is better) but with short sleeve shirts, the fleece sleeves feel great. As a standalone, the Salathe is fine, but sometimes the cuff snaps (by which it is fastened into the shell) can be a little annoying. All in all, the Mountain Light-Salathe-Redpoint is such a versatile system, that I think it is great for anyone who wants a really top quality complete package on a budget.

great zip-in jacket
Jacket is perfect zip-in compatible with my TNF outer shell. Jacket is warm and comfy. For tall person (6'5") the XL sleeves work great.
