Generally I'll second the prior review on this site: thumbs up and worth it.
I've only used this jacket on one climb, and the conditions were relatively mild, in the low 30s but windy and damp. I was concerned that the medium I bought would not fit over layers but it did though snugly. I had it on over a Washington jacket + feathered friends down vest while pausing over my summit coffee, and I wore it for a while on the descent. Very comfortable, low frills, and nicely cut.
I'm not sure what to say about the pockets. I don't like the bulk generated by stuff in hip pockets, so I tend not to use them. still its hard to get used to their not being there if only for hand warming. there are work arounds , like gloves, or using the zippered pass through. the chest pockets are small but do the job.
I'm happy w the jacket, and knowing its made next door in NH adds to the pleasure
I’ve been waiting for this jacket for almost a year and the wait was worth it. The attention to detail, the construction, quality of materials. My jacket’s maiden voyage was a 7 mile hike up Mount Monadnock. Summit was feels like 9° with 50mph winds. With the jacket all zipped up over my Highlander and Flume zip, I was warm and cozy.
And this is where my only complaint comes in. There are no hand pockets. Just the two chest pockets. It’ll take some getting used to. But without them, there’s far less chance of wind and cold getting through the jacket.
Just a solid, well made, versatile jacket. I look forward to wearing it daily.
