Super Warm Lightweight Jacket
This jacket was a bit different in color when I got it in person (thought it was periwinkle but it's more of a dark blue purple) and a little shorter in the front and arms than I expected (I am long waisted and have longer arms), but it is super lightweight and warm! I can't believe how warm it is especially in Minnesota below zero winters. I would definitely recommend this jacket to anyone in a super cold weather climate who is active and on the go and needs something not so constricting. My mittens make up for the shorter arms and the fact the jacket is so warm, I'm able to overlook the fact it's a littler shorter than I wanted. Overall GREAT JACKET!

This jacket is soooo warm and light. The fit is perfect - comfortable and shapely. It is weather resistant not waterproof but it is overall a great winter jacket.

Lightweight warm jacket
I really like TNF Catalyst Jacket. It's extremely lightweight, making it an ideal outerwear for moderate-high level outdoor activity. The hem cinchcord is very effective in blocking out wind, keeping you warm in cool weather. I am 5'4, 100lbs and the XS fits perfectly. The jacket runs short and the arm area is quite puffy. I wish the arm area was more slender and feminine. I highly recommend the jacket, though.

Great jacket, I bought 2
I love this jacket. I originally bought it for a trip to Antarctica, and it was sooooo warm. I felt like I was wrapped in a nice, warm blanket my whole trip. Ok, it was summer in Antarctica, but still. I liked the jacket so much, I bought another one in a different color. I was worried about ordering it online because I hadn't tried it on, but when my Altrec package arrived, I was happy to find it was a perfect fit (I am 5'6" 115#). I had bought a Patagonia down jacket before trying this one, then I returned the Patagonia. I prefer the fit and comfort of this one, even if the Patagonia looks a little more stylish.
