- Great mid level down jacket (Review by rebellosea2sky)
Great light weight utility jacket to keep you warm even in windy conditions. Packs up small to easily stash. Really like to the slightly slimmer cut keeping the jacket closer to the body which minimizes the air your body needs to warm up, less risk in getting snagged on brush/branches and easier to slip a waterproof layer over.
As others have noted, the jacket does shed notably more feathers than any other down item that I have. Slightly annoying. We'll see what the long term effect will be.
Would recommend to anyone who is seeking a light down jacket for casual or sport use.

- Great lightweight down jacket! (Review by Jonathon)
Simple answer, I would recommend this jacket if you want a good looking lightweight down jacket without all the bells and whistles.
I got this jacket in the late fall and used it for rock climbing (belaying at the crag), to now ski season for a layer on cold days in the Wasatch while skiing at the resort. Overall i've been really impressed with this layer and found it works great for layering under a shell jacket for resort skiing.
Before this jacket I had a Patagonia Down Hoody and it worked great but wanted to try this one. The fit on this jacket is better for me then the Patagonia one. I'm 6'1" 165lbs with a plus 1 ape index. The large fits perfect while on other brands the sleeves were tos short
Have a safe winter!

- Great fit, light wight, lower fill, lots of shedding (Review by Logan (skier, climber, hiker, biker))
I would likely recommend this product.
Fit: I really like the fit of this jacket.
My Size. I am a pretty standard sized athletic guy (6'0'' 165 LBS; Upper body: 40'' Chest, Arm Length; 35'' (long), Pant: 31,33). This jaket fit me very well. It was fitted but not too tight for me, but I dont have a gut so if you are a stockier guy it might be a bit tight. It fits well as a sub layer under a shell, and is stylish as an outer. The hood is designed well and has a nice adjustment around the rim (fyi, probably wont fit over a ski helmit, maybe a low profile climbing helm though).
Purpose: Midlayer, lightwight insulation
I have a large down jacket for low temperatures, so I purchased this one to fit the temps of days and evenings where a shell and a long sleeve are not enough but the large down coat would just be overkill. It fits this purpose well, though I thought it should have be a little warmer. This is probably because of the lightweight nature and low fill (650 fill). However, it does regulate your body temperature well. I do a lot of skiing climbing hiking biking, and meandering around town; this would be a good jacket for any low cardio version of any of these. I like the 3 pockets. They are the rights sizes and in the right locations as usual. It would be nice if the inner liners for the hand pockets were insulated, because when you are walking around with the jacket unzipped the pockets provide little to no protection from the cold (easy remedy, zip up the jacket). This is a minor critique but it would be a nice addition
Quality: fair, not typically what I expect from OR.
Disclosure: I might have received a defective jacket, and I will probably request a replacement through OR's infinite guarantee. I have been very disappointed with the feather shedding of this jacket. I have owned quite a few down coats and they all shed, however, this one is highly irregular in the amount of feathers it continuously puts off. I cannot ware this jacket with any dark colored clothing because I come away looking like I've been wrestling with a cat or dog. I have the feeling that this jacket will soon lose most of its insulation. I have warn this with a light pack and it looks like the density of the down has been especially reduced where the packs ridges set on my lumbar. Additionally, I have only had the jacket a couple of weeks and there are a number of frayed strings coming undone. I will be seeking a replacement through OR's awesome Infinite guarantee.
Conclusion: Great fit, light wight, lower fill, lots of shedding
This jacket is very well designed for its purpose as far as form and fit. I really would recommend it. The shedding is pretty bad but I am going to get this one replaced and see if the issue persists.
Alternatives: Filament Jacket.
I might recommend the lighter weight Filament Jacket (800+ fill, weight: 281g) over this jacket (650 fill, 390g). Though the Filament is more expensive, it may be a better jacket. I don't know which would provide more warmth, but I would not be surprised if the lighter weight jacket with the higher 800+ fill did a better job with less material. Both have hoods.
