Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great insulation layer This is a great jacket if you want something light-weight and warm. It works great for keeping you warm on hikes or at night when it gets really cold. I use it primarily for camping and hiking when I'm on climbing trips and during the cold winter months this has been a lifesaver! Some of the down comes out but its been so little that I've barely noticed, it seems to be very durable and I havent had any rips or tares on it yet and since I climb in it at times I am very glad for that. I also love how compressible it is, the inside pocket can be used as a container for the whole jacket. This is a great product and I would highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice piece of safety gear I feel the hoodie is more of a heavy weight sweater then a jacket. Purchased the piece, at a heavy discount, to live in the bottom of my winter pack to serve as the extra layer in case of the need to overnight outside. It is lose enough to wear over 2 or 3 base layers and thin enough to fit under a parka. An outer layer is mandatory for protection from snags, sparks and wind. Length is sufficient to cover the gap between upper and lower garments. With the hood up, over a winter hat, it serves as a makeshift sleeping bag at a fraction of the weight and volume. I have spent several nights out in the low teens and have been comfortable. This piece will be too warm for any level of activity more strenuous then standing around the fire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best light jacket ever! This jacket was the first jacket I have bought from Outdoor Research. I practically wear it every day now that the weather has turned cold. The construction is great and I have lost very few feathers. The fit is just perfect, I am 6'2" #185. I've got several compliments on the look of the coat. The 600 fill down is perfect for temps around freezing. Water beads off for a little bit, but you will want a shell for prolonged moisture. The pockets are lined with micro fleece and all the zippers work perfectly. I have a little trouble stuffing it all in the chest pocket, but I hang it up anyway or put it in a compression sack when backpacking. You won't regret buying this!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Piece I've had this jacket for about a month and I really like it. I live in Durango, CO so we don't have super cold weather, but it's been great from 6-35 degrees. I've taken it out on a long snowshoeing hike, and wore it while belaying on ice climbs. It blocks wind incredibly well, works well with a shell over it and has plenty of storage pockets. I find that it's plenty warm for my needs especially when layered well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always in my ski pack I keep this in my pack on backcountry ski trips. It doesn't take up much space and is always there in case of emergency. I'll also put it on when I stop for lunch, especially on a summit or other exposed locale. On cold days, I may start out wearing it until I warm up. It's also good to have in your pack when hiking in cool weather throughout the year. ... I also wear around town a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice, good looking jacket. This item is even better than I remember the description, to include: fully adjustable hood which will accomodate a cap; large interior pockets. Fit is true to size. Layers well with an outer shell and over a light vest. It is warm, but I can't comment on water or wind resistance yet. This is an attractive jacket, I am very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I little warmer please It could be just a little warmer. We just went through one of the harshest winters her in Michigan and this jacket would keep me warm as long as I layered up with something else. By itself I would be slightly chilly. The hand pockets have very little insulation in them, so unless you are wearing gloves, they won't keep warm on the chilliest of winter days. The hood works very well. It's a good jacket, just not a great one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket! This was a great purchase. Outdoor Research has a great product with this jacket. I had purchased a similar down jacket with Sierra Designs and it began to shed its down almost immediately. There has been no such problem with this OR jacket. Further, the jacket will compress into one of the pockets that has a zipperm enabling you to travel more compactly by packing it away in a bag. Highly recommend!
