I was lucky enough to get this jacket at 1/2 price and even though it's spring in my area, I happened to go to work in a VERY cold building right after receiving it. I've been wearing it ever since and am HAPPY! It's warm without bulk. Not as streamlined as the Patagonia down sweater, but not as big as some other 700 fill jackets on the market. Has nice features like a glove clip on the sleeve, velcro wrist closures, a soft, padded collar, zippered interior pocket, etc. It's tapered at the waist which is nice to avoid the typical boxy look. I also like the matte finish fabric. Hate the shiny down jackets. LOVE the green interior color with the brown outer color! I haven't tried stuffing it yet - not sure I'll be able to do that, but if it can be done, it will be done. Please note: Exchanged a medium for a large for a much better fit. GET THIS for next winter if you need a jacket. Thanks, Backcountry, for such easy buy/return. Great customer service!!
I was looking for a down jacket for warmth in a cold dry environment. This jacket is perfect. I tried this jacket on at a retail store for bit but they did not have the color I wanted and it wasn't on sale. I found backcountry.com on a google search. I normally wear an XS to S and I went with XS and can still fit a fleece underneath.
This jacket is sure to keep you warm in the coldest midwest weather. I bought a size bigger since I am always between med and large. I first had the med and decided to get the large. Backcountry is always about your satisfaction.
