I live in AK and am used to wearing layers. I like that this is lighweight but warmer than other brands lightweight synthetic jackets. It makes it more of a 4 season jacket for me. Its not meant to be a winter coat like the other people are complaining about unless you live down south. The fit is perfect and it folds up into the pocket making it great for traveling.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased the jacket because we travel a lot and it is easy to pack, I was in Amsterdam this week and the jacket did not keep me warm unless I was wearing multi layers. The temps were 50-60 degrees. I like the jacket for style and fit. I would not call this a late fall or early winter jacket.
Use as a sweater not a coat.
I would recommend this product.

I just recently bought this jacket, and LOVE that they have made it with a little longer torso then some of their other jackets. For those of us with long torso's, this is great!

This isn't one of the steroetypical "marshmallow" down coats. As long as you aren't planning on heading up K2, it will still keep you warm. I haven't yet taken it on a fall or wintertime trip for Bishop bouldering, I am confident that it would do the trick. The fit is good, and it compresses well. Overall, a great jacket.
I would recommend this product.

I love this little lightweight jacket. It is my go-to on cooler (30s), but not cold days. It blocks the wind and insulates just enough I am comfortable. Living at 9200 in the rockies, I wear jackets nine months out of the year. In the spring and fall, I wear them in the morning at the very least.
I would recommend this product.

This jacket is a great LAYER, it is NOT warm enough for anything below 50 deg. without another layer.
I got this jacket at half price and am pleased with it so far. BUT, at $200 I would be unhappy with the seeming fragility of this jacket- a slight snag and you might loose a lot of down. Also, true to other folks' word, the zipper is sub par.
I like the style, and am happy having paid $100. I wouldn't go for it for $200.
I do not recommend this product.

Very lightweight and compact. Not quite as warm as I expected an 800-fill jacket to be but still great considering I don't need it for winter. The wink color did end up being a bit brighter than I expected, but in a good way. I'm happy with this purchase!

I did buy two not really knowing how they would be. I was intrigued by the compactness and the advertised warmth that it would be, also the light weightness of the garment. Folding into it's own pocket is pretty cool. I haven't had a chance to wear it outside yet,but it does pretty well.
I would recommend this product.

I love this piece and own both a green and a black one. I use it for everything. I use it as a layering piece for skiing, a jacket on the coldest days, and a 'sweater' while at work or running errands. I'm always cold and this piece works great in all temps.
The lines of the piece are very flattering and there is very little bulk. I used to avoid all down jackets due to how big they make you look, but technology(down) has come a long way.
I would recommend this product.

I want to love my jacket, but I just get way too frustrated with the zipper. I think I spend more time fighting trying to get in/out of my jacket then I do trekking along.
Love that it's lightweight, love the color, love the packability/portability, love the fit... but the zipper is killing it for me. For whatever reason, the zipper keeps splitting open at the bottom which is not only drafty but it makes it a bear to get off.
The only other thing I'd prefer to fix on this jacket is it'd be great to have slightly longer sleeves with thumbholes on em. I don't have ape arms, but the sleeves are just a tad too short for my taste.
For the price, I would've expected a higher quality zipper.
I do not recommend this product.

Perfect weight for layering or no bulk. Fabulous green color. Fit is unusual. Looks very boxy in picture but is actually not. Size M most likely would fit a size 8 at largest. Sleeves were very short and no bust room at all! Order at least 1 size larger.
I would recommend this product.

I wish I could like this jacket more than I do. Overall, I am having buyer's remorse. The fit on me personally is the biggest problem so if it fits you, you might love it. For reference, I am 5'9'' and 130 lbs. and I have this jacket in medium. The torso length is good and I do have a long torso. The sleeves are too short and it is too tight in the shoulder but I do have pretty broad shoulders. The large would have been way too baggy, though. I do not think this jacket is worth the price. There is nothing special about it and it is not the warm, toasty jacket I was hoping for.
The good:
-love the color- red onion (which is actually pink)
-weighs nothing and packs down to nothing
-probably great as a layering piece but because of the fit, I can't move my arms when layered
-hasn't shed too much down
-fabric is tougher than it feels
The bad:
-the fit
-fill weight is low so it is really not that warm
-drafty because the wrist openings are too loose
-stitching is already coming out after only a few weeks of casual wear
-the zipper feels like it is going to break every time I zip this thing
I have already picked out a new jacket...
I do not recommend this product.

This is my go-to jacket. We've been getting temperatures in the mid 20's. It's blistering cold out, but this jacket keeps me toasty. I highly recommend the jacket, but I strongly urge you to order a size up. I'm a small in everything I wear (5'4, 120 lbs, C cup), but I got a medium in this and I couldn't be happier.
I would recommend this product.

Like everything about the jacket - except the zipper. Once zipped, the zipper tends to "unzip" from the bottom quite easily. The slightest tug pulls the zipper apart at the bottom. Don't know if this is specific to my jacket or if they all do this.
I would recommend this product.

I love this jacket. Light weight and scrunches up into a very small size for travel. I wish the waist was a little smaller and the arms a bit longer but overall-a very functional jacket.
Note: I do have long arms, broad shoulders and a narrow waist. I tried the size small, but the sleeves were too short.. waist still was a bit big even on the small. But for what i'm looking for, this jacket is great. Love the color also.
I would recommend this product.

I just moved to the Rockies and needed a down coat to throw in my backpack for hiking/backpacking. This coat is perfect- light and warm. If I need protection from precipitation or wind, I can just throw a shell on top! I am 5'8" and ordered a medium. I like my coats a little bit big.
I would recommend this product.
