This is a great light weight down jacket. Warmth without the bulk. It has become my go to jacket. Just wish it had an inside pocket for my cell phone.
I would recommend this product.

Runs a little large. Even with sweaters and base layers, the jacket was too large. I typically wear XL but had to return for a L. Otherwise, great product from a great company.
I would recommend this product.

I returned this jacket (xl size) as the fit seems designed for wider midsections. Nowhere near an athletic fit. Same problem with Marmot's down jackets.
I do not recommend this product.

There's not much to say about this jacket. I'm a perfect medium size in most clothes (6 ft tall, 170 lbs, 40 in reg jacket size, and 32 in waist). This jacket was cut way too square. There is absolutely no taper from the chest to the waist, which looks ridiculous. In fact, the chest was cut tighter than the waist. The loft on this jacket was not as good as another jacket I tried from Patagonia, so I returned it.
I do not recommend this product.

The Nitrous wears like a light jacket or sweater. If it's cold out, you'll need something heavier, but it's ideal for mildly cool temps or as an underlayer. It's trim, not bulky. Very comfortable and light. I'm 5-11 and 160 and the medium fits perfect.
I would recommend this product.

I am 5'8" and 170lbs. I ordered the medium and it feels a little tight in my upper torso during certain activities but otherwise, it fits great. "Shark" color is a dark charcoal grey which appears black on the site, classy color. I had to update old, super puffy Sierra Designs down sweater and this is almost as warm.
I would recommend this product.

This is my second nitrous jacket. I gave the first to my son, and now I wish I hadn't. The fit is slightly larger in the current version. Moreover, the new version lacks a breast pocket. I really miss that pocket for storing my phone and wallet.
I would recommend this product.

For the money this jacket is great. It is light enough to use as a mid layer but warm enough to wear alone.
I would recommend this product.

This jacket is extremely warm. It has been my primary jacket since Christmas in Pennsylvania. It has gone down to about 18 degrees and this jacket keeps me very warm when out walking the dog.
The problem is the neckline has become extremely frayed. The quality just seems very poor. Nothing is scratching against the jacket in the area where it is fraying. There are other areas on the jacket that have become open and allow feathers to come out.
I do not recommend this product.

This jacket is very light weight and seemed to thin to be very warm. I have worn it for about two weeks now and it is a great jacket. It is much warmer than I would have thought. Put it under a second coat of any kind and I can go out in very cold and windy weather.
I would recommend this product.

I returned the 'Ghost Whisper" jacket, a little to 'shinny' for me, and got the nitrous. Have not 'tested' it yet but for skiing and around the town in cold weather it is great. I am sore it will perform well.
I would recommend this product.

A very light jacket that is highly compressible, good fit, with enough space for layering. Surprisingly warm for its weight.

Bought this today at the Seattle store. Am using this Mountain Hardware Nitrous jacket as a insulation layer under our work uniform. I work in emergency response services. We are constantly running around outside, inside or in strange places like garages or basements -- or on rooftops ... or in the wilderness. This jacket has about 10-12 ounces of 800 fill down with a medium micro-puff styling. The collar is also short which is great for our purposes and doesn't get in the way. Am wearing the jacket now testing it on duty and it is great. Will recommend to our other officers looking to stay warm in the cold. Plus, it's light and breathes well. On me the XL size is more of a coat because it goes down below the waistline.
I would recommend this product.

My husband does not light things that constrict his movement or bulky things. He loves this coat because it keeps him nice and warm without all the bulk of a regular down coat. Great coat!

An excellent lightweight down jacket for the money. Putting it on is like living in your own personal ecosystem, so warm, but light enough that it doesn't feel like you are wearing anything at all. Fits a little bit small, I'm a large and XL fits well. Needs a hood!
I would recommend this product.
