AlpinistAwesome jacket!

Voted 5/5

I wore this jacket every day during my Denali expedition in May 2008. It is lightweight, extremely comfortable and very warm. In addition, the jacket is well made and durable. This could very well be my favorite piece of clothing on the trip.

I can't believe something this light can keep me that warm. Only been in the low 20's with this but with a t-shirt under. So this jacket will keep you warm. The only down side is the interior "pockets" should be a little deeper. But I highly recommend this jacket.
