Ideal Piece of Technical Gear (Review by Amy G.)

I ordered this jacket (women's version) in October of 2014, a couple of weeks after a partial amputation on my left hand. This jacket kept my core warm enough that my hand didn't suffer: no shunting off of the blood supply to my extremities to keep my core temps up. This allowed me to trail run through the Montana winter, provided a great layer for continued powder turns, and got me comfortably out to the dams for work when conditions were still wet and cold. I truly can't speak highly enough of this jacket; it was a life saver for me. The fit is snug but not tight and works well with layers above and below. The thumb loops are always bonus for me and they're strong enough that I haven't worn through them after 2 1/2 years of continuous wear. I will buy long as they decide to sell the women's version again.

Great for fat biking (Review by Mason)

This is a great mid layer for cold days skiing, biking, and many other active winter sports. I have been using it as an outer layer and as an insulating layer while fat biking in the Colorado foothills. Fat biking uphill is pretty high exertion and breathability is really important. The lightly insulated front keeps most wind out and the highly breathable arms and back reduce sweating dramatically. I generally throw a layer over it, typically the Ferrosi hoody, for the descents. I do not love the appearance of the jacket as it is a little unusual looking but the jacket works great for its intended purpose. The sleeve material does "pill" a little but that is after many days of use and a fabric shaver took care of that and made it look good again. Great jacket!

Perfect jacket (Review by Taylor)

Deceptively warm, incredibly packable, looks nice enough to wear out to a bar, and useful enough to wear for outdoor sports.

This jacket is the perfect mid-layer under my motorcycle jacket for winter riding, and great as a main layer for everything else between 34-50 degree temperatures..

Amazingly Versatile Jacket (Review by Matthew)

Have had this jacket for about a month and absolutely love it! It thin and light weight yet deceptively warm. I've worn it under my OR soft shell as a perfect complement. I used it for a trail run in 30F conditions over the top of my long-sleeved zip tee. It performed perfectly. I have not yet used it for backpacking but expect that it's design will be ideal for keeping the chest and core warm while allowing breathability through the back. I've also received numerous compliments on its stylish look as well.

Really awesome performer (Review by Old Goat)

Really love this jacket. It compares well to other hybrid type jackets, and in my opinion, performs and fits better.

Men's Acetylene Jacket (Review by By J. Spitzer)

I really like the Acetylene Jacket. I got my first one about 6months ago and used it while climbing Mt Rainier. I kept my core warm while allowing my body to breath. The insulation in the front keeps you warm, but the back has stretch material that breaths. This prevented me from over heating and sweating out a bunch.Now I have two of these jackets and used them all the time for b/c skiing, alpine climbing, ice climbing and just wearing them around town. Very comfortable layer to hang out it.

Men's Acetylene Jacket (Review by By Out of Bounds)

this is a great new product. It has just enough puff in the front to keep you warm, and the thin fleece in back lets heat dissipate better. I wore it hiking on a frosty November in the Great Smoky Mountains of eastern Tennessee, and I never overheated on the ups and downs, even though I was wearing a loaded backpack. The thumb loops are perfectly placed for me, so keeping my sleeves in place at my wrists doesn't pull or constrict the sleeves at my shoulders. The fit is trim enough to wear this under a shell- I can even layer my size Medium Acetylene under my close-fitting size Medium Ferrosi hoody without restricting my movements. If it had a l lightweight hood attached, it would be the perfect piece, but that's just my preference. I'm even more eager for the temps to drop, knowing I'll have this in my pack.
