Good deal
Although some of the First Ascent line has gotten some seriously bad reviews, I have found this jacket to be an exceptional piece of gear. I have used it on some brutal days on Colorado 14ers in winter and some cold camping trips (-20F with wind) and have been very pleased. The material is strong and is holding up to use.
