"Great layer, thumb grips, almost invisible in weight"
This piece is comfortable and warm. The thumb holes don't squeeze your hand to death like others out there. I can't zip it up all the way as it feels slightly choke like on my neck. It's long enough (which is always an issue in women's gear). It really does stay warm and dry. - Tested in below zero temperatures in Colorado. I've worn it for up to five days in a rom in the backcountry and it doesn't hold a smell (that is rare!)
