Voted 4/5

Feathers are heavier than this jacket. The medium which I bought only weights 10 oz! It is completely waterproof and very durable. The extended sleeves are great when doing technical climbing because when you extend your arms over your head, the sleeves do not ride up your arms. Also, the short torso cut is excellent for a climbing harness. The jacket has a relaxed fit so my fleece fits well under it.

Cons: Although GoLite says that the hood is cut for a climbing helmet, my BD Half Dome does not fit very well under it. Also, the jacket is very tight around my neck when I zip it all the way up (and I have a pencil neck).

This jacket would be excellent for summer alpine uses, but I would be wary using it in winter. I have yet to experience this jacket in severe mountain weather, so I will update my review after this summer season. Also, shop around, I bought mine for almost half of the suggested retail price.
