Wear this 800-fill down sweater at camp in the morning or for a long moment of clarity at the summit. The strong DWR finish makes it an excellent layer for snowshoeing or backcountry skiing. Dive into the zipperless kangaroo pocket when the chill bites your fingers at a frosty belay.

Voted 5/5

I have wore through a couple of micros and this is the best. I do not wear large jackets. I layer compulsively and a down layer is a must in the Canadian Rockies, but it has to be lightweight and dry out fast. This option barely weighs a pound and keeps me warmer than heavier ones I have owned in the past. OR supplies me with gear, but I would not be reluctant to pay retail for this product. The pocket makes total sense as well. Why don't more manufactures do this? Cheers.
