I bought this to replace an old MEC down jacket I had. Wanted something lighter weight. This jacket is great. I use if primarily for backcountry skiing. Surprisingly it was not as warm as my old one (but it is significantly lighter). I find the zipper to be a little finnicky to get started. If I was winter camping in the Rockies I would bring my bigger down jacket (OR Virtuoso) and leave this one at home. I'm 6ft, 210 and large fits great.
