Super warm, packable and cruelty freeI can't compare this to a down jacket but from what i have researched is it is equal to a thicker down jacket and id believe it because it is warm as is. Put a good soft shell over top and it cant handle pretty much anything. It really does meet the claims that the fabric is durable for its thickness and packability, it breathes super well and is water and wind resistant.
I wear it in the mountains of colorado down to 10 degrees and add a soft shell i have been able to handle everything this winter so far (-10 farenheit).
Because if the fabric and insulation i cant wear it over a softshell (for temporary layering such as during an extended rett or under the same shell for the bitter weather. It doesnt look big, puffy or strange when worn over or under abd that is cool if it is going to be your around town jacket as well.
It fits great! Unlike most brands that are for unathletic builds of various shapes, this is for people who live an active life outdoors. The reason i gave it four stars, however, is that mammut's fit on this coat is a little big in the belly compared to the rest of their own products. Its probably for the large inner pockets but i guess im being super picky
