CoraxLight and warm

Voted 5/5

A very light jacket with high quality down. What surprised me with the jacket is the durability. I have tried other basic light ones in the same category and they have fallen apart quickly, as it seems like this issue has been set aside and the main priority has been to make the jacket very light.

There is not so much to say about this one - a basic, simple, good quality, warm, mid layer/back up jacket for a reasonable price.
