Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great all day Jacket I bought this jacket a few weeks ago looking for something to use on cold mornings racking up or on the way to the crag. I could easily climb in it when needed or wear it into town. I'm 5'7'' and a medium fits me good, a bit long in the arms for this short guy...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right in the Zone My new favorite piece. Light enough for warm days, fits loose enough to layer under for cold days. Wind resistance gives it the edge over fleece as it can be worn as an under or outerwear layer. You can often leave it on for both the skintrack and on the down. How cool is that?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional Mid Layer The First Light Hoody has exceeded expectations so far. I have used this piece as a stand alone outer layer and as my mid layer in various ski conditions. It sheds precipitation well, breathes, and has an athletic fit. I am 6ft and the large fits like a glove. The only feature I would appreciate in addition would be an outer chest pocket. Cheers to the First Light Hoody Black Diamond!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great active insulation, fit could use improvement As luck would have it, I got this piece and it two main competitors, the Nano-air and Proton. After using all three, I say this is the most versatile and rugged piece. My only complaint is when I close my chest, I feel restriction on my back/shoulder. The outer layer uses Schoeller stretch woven fabric, but the liner isn't stretchable. Which I thought to defeat the purpose. That being said, based on the price of all three pieces, this is the best jacket for the best price. A few tweaks would make it nearly perfect. Here is my general observation when comparing all three. The Nano-air is less wind resistant but more breathable. It's more comfortable but less durable. With the Nano-air you'll definitely need an outer shell if you'll be ideal for a while or there is high wind. The Proton is very similar to this piece, except the fit is better around the shoulder. If you have a broad shoulder or big back, it's the piece with the better fit. Why would I select the first light over the other pieces? Durability and price. Schoeller with Nanosphere has proven itself to me in the "Alpine Start" jacket. This is also the least expensive of the three so unless the fit or comfort is a deal breaker, this is your piece. I suggest two improvements. Use a stretchable liner fabric or give more room around the shoulder and upper back area. Give a bigger zipper. I use the zipper a lot to increase/decrease "breathability" and the existing zipper is tiny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from outer midlayer I like two midlayers for cold dry days here ideally an outer one that is tougher and an inner one that is breathable. After a lot of research I chose this as an outer one and it hasn't disappointed. Comfort is good enough for this purpose. I wouldn't want to ski uphill for too long in it, but it's better against wind than most. It repels light precip and tree branches well enough. Fit is on point in typical BD style: good for slim tall people, which I am not but it works for me due to wide shoulders and I like the long torso length. I am 5'11" 180 pounds and got a large. With my mission shell in medium it's a bomber combo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite jacket for simply everything! This jacket is simply phenomenal! Lives in my pack for any summer endeavours. Whether it is backpacking for a few days or Alpine climbing, rock climbing on chilly days. It just stays in the pack until I need it. Fall / Spring. I won’t leave the house without it. I wear it or stuff it. I even bring it with me on chilly mountain biking trip (leasure or while coaching) Winter. The season that sold me for this jacket! Most of the time, I have it on. Unless it is really. Warm winter day. Backcountry skiing, running, ice climbing or walking the dog, this jacket allows you to move and adjust to a wide range of temperature. Just simply layer accordingly underneath it. Short sleeve, long sleeve, both or combined with a insulated vest, this jacket does it all. I wear it on top of a light to mid weight base layer for most days ice climbing. Below -20 degrees celsius, I use an insulated vest under. Wet pitches, I wear my BD Helio jacket over the First Light. I finally have all my layer combinations figured out after 30 years of playing in the Outdoors. Durability has been fantastic and one of the rare product I would buy again and again. One minor suggestion. Maybe put the hand warmer pockets 2-3” higher to not interfere with a harness. 6 out of 5 Thank you BD!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new go to Bought this coat primarily for back country touring and have gotten out in it a few times so far. It has lived up to expectations with breathability, weight, fit, and feel. Two deep side pockets and one inside chest pocket, all with zippers, give plenty of room for snacks or your phone. Tapered wrist cuffs make sure the sleeve stays above your wrist and out of the way on change overs but isn't overly snug or uncomfortable. The relaxed but tapered fit make it ideal for almost any situation, I would definitely recommend adding this to your gear closet if your trying to fill an active-insulation layer need.
