- Warm Thoughts about my Lodestar (Review by cheryl)
My down jacket is now a dry jacket! The Floodlight does trap my own body heat and I stay toasty warm. I use this jacket primarily for ice climbing and wear it while I am belaying. I have even worn it while climbing because the temps have been very low, (my record with this jacket is -22F.) The jacket sheds water and keeps me warm. The bonus? The Floodlight is a beautiful down jacket. I wear mine out on the town and I get compliments all of the time. I purchased the Flame (red) and the white piping/zippers/accents look awesome. I think the cut is flattering....especially since it is meant to be worn over additional layers. I would recommend the Floodlight Jacket to anyone looking to stay warm and dry, (not just ice climbers.) I am a true size medium and the medium size Lodestar is the perfect fit.

- Ready for Winter! (Review by alpinerodeo)
I’m so psyched on my Floodlight jacket—finally, a quality down jacket that’s waterproof! No more needing to wear a rain jacket or waterproof layer over my down jacket! And the stylish looks of this jacket don’t hurt either. It’s long enough to be a good ski jacket and has nice, and the hood fits great, even over my various ski and climbing helmets. I love how it fits into the pocket, doubling as a perfect, cozy pillow for alpine overnights.
My only gripes would be that it’s a bit baggy in the middle and the waterproof Pertex fabric shows some of the feathers through. I got the flame (red) and that hides the feathers better than the apple. I bet the black would hide them even more. But some like that look. Really minor gripes in what will be my go-to jacket for the next several months!

- Sizing problem (Review by Sally)
Huge fan of OR gear but I'm majorly bummed about this purchase. Maybe my mistake can help somebody else...I waited 6 months for it to be back in stock in the Flame (great red/orange-ish color by the way) so it arrived less than a week before I was leaving the country. I was totally confounded by the "trim fit" in the description. I am a true medium in every other OR jacket I own but I was concerned about layering under the "trim fit" version. No store within 500 miles of me carried it, so there was no way to try on. Out of caution, and running out of time, I sized up and ordered a Large, hoping it would be more fitted or sort of on the small side of Large. Nope, it's huge. Now I am stuck in Antarctica for the next 6 months with a way too big/baggy jacket. Moral: just order your normal OR size.

- Women's Floodlight Jacket™ (Review by By EPD)
I live in the Northeast where our winters are long, cold, and raw. Low elevation mountains usually equal some of the most bone chilling cold I've experienced anywhere and this jacket is the answer! While synthetic insulation is nice, you just can't beat 800+fill down for warmth and compressibility. Add waterproofness to that and you have the best combination possible.The fit of this jacket is great, too; the sleeves are nice and long, the hood fits over a helmet and the torso is comfortable and flattering without being boxy or too puffy.It's not the warmest jacket I own but that's okay because I like to use when I'm actually climbing or skiing in the cold and not just as a belay jacket.

- Women's Floodlight Jacket™ (Review by By JayDub)
The Floodlight very quickly replaced any other down jacket for long days of climbing. With 800 fill down, it lofts and insulates really well, but still packs down in a climbing pack.The Pertex shell fabric keeps the jacket waterproof (worn it in the rain) and very windproof, so no matter the weather I have a reliable insulation layer.The hood fits over a climbing helmet, and the cut is roomy enough to fit over my layers, but not at all bulky.
