Comments about Red Ledge Thunderlight Parka - Women's - 2012 Closeout:
I can't comment on best uses because the jacket I ordered was a little too large for me, so I didn't keep it. However, I didn't order a smaller size because the main reason I wanted the jacket was the fact that it could be packed into its own pocket - I love that feature and have been searching for one that does just that. BUT THIS ONE JUST DOESN'T - the mesh pocket is so small that it cannot easily hold more than two thirds of the jacket. With a MAJOR EFFORT it can all be squeezed in, but no way can the pocket be zipped closed. It also comes with a separate little storage sack which is almost twice the size of the pocket. If the jacket is rolled very tightly, it can be gradually worked into the sack. Neither containers are worth the effort, so why have them and advertise them as a special feature? If that feature isn't important to a buyer, the other features make the jacket a good deal.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
