Rated 5 out of 5 by Digger Great Jacket
Have been wearing this jacket in the cold Indiana winters this year with nothing but a tee shirt underneath and have never been cold. The lightness and warmth is amazing. The construction is first class, as is all Mountain Hardwear products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NWClerk Feather-light but a few concerns.
A close friend of mine got this jacket as a gift, and as a Virginia Tech alumni I had to look into it myself. Super light - check. Surprisingly warm - check. Looks awesome in Blacksburg - double check.
The first time I ordered the jacket one of the threads on the inside right sleeve was already about an inch unraveled. Not cool. But I liked the jacket so much I did an exchange. The replacement showed up in perfect condition.
After wearing it several times there were a few concerns. First, be careful zipping up, well, anything. Since the fabric is very loose (it's kind of a "poof" jacket after all) it's extremely easy to get it stuck in the zipper, even when paying attention. Especially in the pockets. Secondly, if you sweat in this at all (and if it's doing it's job, odds are you will) I noticed some darkening/discoloration around the neckline that didn't go away after several days. Could just be the dark color, but something to be aware of if you're a sweaty beast (because I'm not).
I wouldn't recommend this for very cold days, but anything above 25 and below 55 this jacket is solid. I'd give it 4.5 stars but the system only goes 4 or 5. Rounded down because of the initial purchase quality concern.
