Super warm synthetic jacket, not the lightest (Review by Alison)

Super warm and water repellent. Nicely cut. Wish the hand pockets had zippers, since it isn't the lightest jacket anyways, but the other two pockets do have zippers, so that is good. The length is long enough to keep the whole torso warm. I have a lot of faith in this jacket giving me the protection I need in cold, wet climates

Mother Loves Chaos (Review by Zachary)

I bought this jacket for my mother as a birthday gift. She can be particular, but ended up loving this jacket, which says a lot! Here is what she says about it:
"I got the Women's Chaos Jacket as a gift and love the warmth without the bulk. I'm tall with long arms but the jacket fits me nicely in the sleeve length. It is made very well and has handy pockets inside the jacket to stash my cell phone and keys while I'm hiking. I didn't think I would like the hood but it turns out that I do. The hood is not bulky and oh so warm, keeping my ears from hurting in the wind. I'm very pleased with my new Chaos Jacket and would recommend it to any woman who wanted a very warm but lightweight jacket."

Awesome Jacket (Review by AK Skier)

I just got this but love it already. The cut is great, trim but roomy. I ordered it last year and was unimpressed with the fit, but they've totally figured it out in this version. I'm 5'9, 130 lbs and the M is perfect. Nice long sleeves, good length, warm, light, great colors. Wish the hip pockets zipped and I'm not crazy about the toggle system (too small to grab w/ gloves) but small complaints overall. I'm psyched to break this baby in this winter.

Awesome Jacket (Review by AK Skier)

I ordered this jacket a year ago and was really bummed with the fit, which was awkward, not well proportioned. I tried again this year b/c it's so perfect for what I need and a great price, and it turns out the redesign hits the spot. It fits perfectly, long enough arms, roomy for layers but trim, great loft, love the color. I'm 5'9, 125 lbs and the M fits great. So glad you redesigned it, and I retried!
