- much warmer than synthetic (Review by Jon)
This jacket was my go-to parka for guiding ice in the Catskills this winter. Half the time I gave it to people who didn't have a proper jacket and it made their day. And it made mine as well! It packs well, a down hood is killer, it turns the water well, and after quite a few years with synthetic puffies - this one really takes it up a solid notch! Thanks, OR.

- Great jacket for polar vortex (Review by Darin)
We have had some extremely cold days in the Adirondacks this winter, thanks to the polar vortex. On several below-zero and near-zero days, I hiked in my new Floodlight jacket to see if it would live up to its billing, and it did. Even at 8 below, I felt toasty. On warmer days, I stuff it in my pack on backcountry-ski trips--in case of emergency or for protection on windy summits.

- Best jacket ive owned! (Review by Neil B)
I purchased this jacket about 6 weeks ago and in good timing! I've been looking for a light weight winter jacket that is waterproof windproof and really warm. Used mainly for winter hikes and ice fishing. This jacket has definitely exceeded my expectations! I live in Ohio and we occasionally get pretty harsh weather. I have been wearing it as my daily jacket, and I am so warm wearing it! I recently put it to the test ice fishing with it. I have been wearing a base layer and a thin fleece underneath it and can say that after being outside on the ice for 4+ hours with 0 degree(-15 wind chill) i have yet to get cold or wet wearing it! This jacket has allowed me to do the things i want to do more often and for longer periods of time.
There is two things that i wish were slightly different about it though. The hood is very warm but to me the sides of it curve a little far back on the sides of my head and sometimes the wind catches me, nothing that wearing a hat doesn't fix though. Also, i wish the baffling in the sleeves went length direction with the sleeves, it goes around the sleeves and i believe the down condenses towards the inner side of my arm. I only find this to be near my elbow area. Overall the best jacket I have ever owned and plan on purchasing more gear by OR!

- Magnificent jacket (Review by salishpaddler)
As a paddler in the Puget Sound area, wet and cold are constant companions. With this jacket I've been able to say goodbye to both. Sleeve and torso length are perfect, too! Great jacket, thank you, OR!

- Excellent Piece (Review by Heady B)
Another satisfied customer here. Outstanding jacket. The fit is perfect for me (6'1" 190 lbs - size Large). Fit comfortably with just a baselayer and just enough room to add a good midlayer for colder, non-active days. Used for skiing in very cold conditions, winter backpacking, and around town when it's wet and cold.
For the warm to weight ratio and waterproofing and price, this piece cannot be beat.

- Men's Floodlight Jacket™ (Review by By Mountain Sense)
I am and IFMGA guide and ambassador for OR, that said, I would endorse this layer as a clutch layer for the damp winter conditions. You don't have to worry about the spindrift or blowing snow soaking you during belay duty. I also found this jacket packed well. If you're going to own one" do everything" down layer this could be it.

- Men's Floodlight Jacket™ (Review by By Mark Allen-IFMGA/AMGA)
This is a pro-piece of equipment. The floodlight was my puffy on a recent fall climb of Mt. Rainier 2013. The forecast was for the seasons first whopper winter storm. I had no previous experience with this product but I had a feeling it was up for a test run and the forecast was able to provide. During the storm we traveled for 3hrs from 10,000ft to 5,000ft in 20-30mph winds, freezing temps, horizontal wet snow, down through the freezing-level, and into the rain showers. I kept the jacket on in the rain to see how far I could push the waterproof claim. *After 3 ½ to 4hrs of cold harsh wet weather ~It is indeed water proof when tested for a duration of 3-4hrs ~The down was not wet nor was the jacket heavier from absorption ~The water visibly runs off the fabric ~It was warm! ~Not only was it warm but I was able to wear in while traveling and did not overheat in freezing temps ~Durable! This fabric is much more resistant to abrasion ~fits great and has great additional features that do not at weightI find this jacket an excellent new solution for the fundamental problems with down, the wet!. Great Job OR for coming up with another piece of great equipment for the harsh wet weather and addresses the needs (glove stashes, helmet to hood, high zippers for harnesses) we have while working during active sports. I look forward to many more days in this go-to layer.

- Men's Floodlight Jacket™ (Review by By Evan)
I use this coat religiously while ski touring all winter. The tough shell adds weather and wear and tear resistance. My old down coats always seem to have a really light shell on them that leaks feathers and gets holes, but this fabric stands up to the weather and the abuse of being in the mountains. Typically it is stuffed in my pack for the uptrack and then I wear it for breaks and the way down while out ski touring. The shell keeps me dry and warm all winter, even in the puking storms in my home range of British Columbia.

- Men's Floodlight Jacket™ (Review by By Bert)
I just bought this down a few weeks ago and I literally fell in Love with it. It is as warm as a down jacket and it's as waterproof as a heavy hard shell. And what's more it's super packable and light. I've used it in the mountains and while rock climbing in wet conditions and I can't wait to wear it this winter under the snow!
