    Likes: Very light weight and wind resistant. Water resistant down is awesome.

    Dislikes: Price, stay away from campfires.

  • Michael V. kingston IL

    Likes: I bought a size Large and on my scale it weighs in at 6.4oz, which is exactly what OR lists it at. You may need to size up on this jacket, I usually wear a Medium in most jackets and a Large fits me perfect and can be layered over a thin midlayer. The hood fit on this jacket is quite good. The adjustment tightens around the crown of the head, but also pulls some of the excess hood close along the sides of the face. In my limited experience so far this negates the need for an additional adjustment around the opening of the hood. Also don't forget OR backs up this product with a lifetime warranty.

    Dislikes: none

  • Stephen E. Lewisburg PA
