This is a great jacket. It is a little more burly than a down sweater or the equivalent, but it is still very light and you hardly know it is on. I find it is too warm for skiing, but it is perfect for around town on a cold winter day or night time winter activities. The hood is great and cinches close around the face and can fit over a helmet. I also get tons of compliments on the color.
I purchased this jacket from Steep & Cheap for around $130! I'm 6'1" and 185lbs and the large is a perfect fit! At under 20-ounces, it's the perfect backpacking companion! It has served me well as a belay jacket and around town when the temperatures drop. Don't let the weight fool you, the 650-fill will keep your body toasty warm! A well-made jacket for the money!!
