I have looked long and hard for a hoody like this. It seemed like Sierra Designs read my mind and custom built this jacket for me. Superlight weight Dri-Tech down, DWR finish, ultra-compact - Everything an ounce counter wants. The thumb holes and hood design are happy bonuses, the DWR held up to light, intermittent rain like a champ, and I did not overheat in late September while hiking with it on. As a matter of fact, it seems to be pretty temperature regulating! The two real surprises for me were the finish and wash-ability. I hate shiny jackets, and the black hoody I got has a very low sheen. Love that! But I was admittedly scared when I first washed this jacket. There are lots of promises out there regarding care for down items, and I am very pleased to say that this jacket can be washed, according to the instructions, at home with fantastic results. Amazing product! Nailed it, Sierra Designs!! Duane Buchholz on Jan 8th 2017
The most feature rich lightweight down jacket on the market, without being gimmicky. Some people may not like that the waist does not have a draw string but from my experience in condition that you would want a draw string you wouldn't be wearing this alone but under a soft or hard shell that would have one making a draw string on this jacket redundant and an annoyance. The thumb loops and drawstring free hood are great additions as well. I'm 5'8" 165 athletic build and I would have to say the sizing is a little strange. I ordered a small and medium because I was in-between sizes. The small fit me perfectly everywhere except in the chest and shoulders, and I do no have large shoulder pec's or lat's. The hood size, waist, stomach area, arm length and overall length of the small fit perfect but chest area was too tight for comfort. From my experience all of sierra designs sizing is slightly off from industry norms, it seems like their sizing is designed around a runners body. The medium is great just a little baggier in the arms and waist area. Bren on May 26th 2016
