This family of products continues to delicately balance the characteristics that define reliable ultra-light apparel. For example, the U.L. Down Jacket weighs less than most cotton T-shirts, blocks a deceptive amount of wind, while compressing to the size of a 32 ounce water bottle. Specifically designed as a replacement for the heavy and bulky fleece garments used by many backcountry enthusiasts, the U.L. Down Series is “what you need” when warmth is critical, minimal weight is paramount, and space in your pack is at a premium.

I'm 5'9" female. I love and reach for these all the time. They are definitely among my top favorite outerwear purchases this year.
I think Montbell is a great company and I look forward to their future. I've read some dissatisfied customer complaints about their ultralight down jackets shedding the moment they get them. For as often as I've used these in a month, I have not noticed a remote problem.
Pockets would be nice but i'm not resentful. Pockets are just nice on everything.. next generation maybe :)
