Micro Puff pullover w/ Polaguard Delta

This jacket provides great wind protection, with unbeatable insulation. My crew and I were climbing peaks in winter, in Colorado, recently. This jacket will keep you alive, especially if you sweat alot. It vented-out all of my sweating very quickly, leaving me dry and warm... even with temps around -10, with windchills near -30, at 14,000 feet. Maintain your core temp with this... the pants are just as great. Polarguard Delta is awesome!!! My sleepingbag is loaded with it as well... It is WEIGHTLESS, maintains HIGH LOFT, DRIES QUICKLY, and so on.

Bill KerrGood even when damp

Voted 5/5

Best all around damp weather belay jacket out there. Works really good in temps just below freezing where down would be too hot and get damp. Wind proof and even sheds light rain due to the DWR coating. The pants are great too.

kovarpaLooks great but...

Voted 4/5

the fit is sooo off - I am 5'9, 150lb and after reading some reviews got size small - when it arrived, it was still quite roomy around my body but too tight around my shoulders and sleeves were a little short. I am very very worried that if I sized up to medium, the fit would be way too roomy around my trunk... it is a shame because otherwise it looks like a great, warm, packable jacket and I really liked the hood. I know you are supposed to wear this with layers but with such a roomy fit I would need to have so many layers on that I would probably not need a warm jacket anymore... I think I will complain to Patagucci that they need to design something with an athletic fit.

Boxy, warm, and doesn't compress very well, but it certainly gets the job done! Sold mine in lieu of the new Nano Puff, which certainly is an upgrade
