Customer Reviews

great jacket! (Review by Hayley)

Excellent jacket! Bought it for ice climbing. Perfect cut for women, eliminating the typical boxy fit a lot of jackets seem to have. High-fives for the two-way zipper, which I think every jacket should have.
My only two beefs:
Hood: Yes, it's fully adjustable, but I really wish the hood was bigger to fit over a helmet better. It fits, but it's tight and restricts movement when looking up. In general, I find women's climbing jackets never have big enough hoods compared to men's versions. And I don't have a massive melon!
Sleeve cuffs: Either make a thumb loop to keep them under my gloves so that ice and snow don't go down the sleeve, or have a strap that can cinch them down over top of the gloves.

Lightweight and warm (Review by Jenni)

Love this jacket. It feels like there's nothing on your skin, but it keeps me so warm. I can wear it in 30-40 degree weather with hardly anything for an under layer and still feel warm.
