Climbing Magazine calls the Floodlight "your best friend in cold, wet weather."
“This jacket will be your best friend in cold, wet weather. A thin and light outer Pertex Shield fabric covers 800-fill down to create a very packable, incredibly warm, and waterproof package. ‘I don’t know how I went so long without a burly, waterproof down jacket,’ one tester said after belaying in shady, below-freezing temps at Moffatt Tunnel near Rollinsville, Colorado. Product designers found that bonding the outer shell directly to the inner lining (with the down between them) allowed for a stitch-free and seamless outside that is sealed off from the elements. Whatever crap conditions we could find—from ice climbing in Quebec, Canada, to windy and wet days in Colorado—were no match for the Floodlight. It’s not meant for high-output activities, but for belaying and waiting between burns, you’ll be hard pressed to find a warmer jacket. Features include a helmet-compatible hood with wire brim, fleece-lined hand warmer pockets situated high, and two elastic pockets inside the jacket that are just right for gloves, goggles, or rock shoes.”
