Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Comfortable I purchased this for winter wear in the Northern reaches of British Columbia. I use it for day to day activities around town and have worn it snowshoeing, etc. I was disappointed when I opened the box it came in, but that didn't last for long. It seemed too thin to be warm enough for our winter - the insulation is a lot less bulky than the fantastically warm but beat up jacket it replaced. But, the first time I wore it to shovel the driveway I was pleasantly surprised. Over the first couple weeks I gradually started to wear it for longer periods and more demanding tasks. Now it's proven to be just as trusty (and a lot better looking) than my last jacket. The attention to detail, fit, and quality of construction are great too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 degrees cold front came in and I put this one to walk in! I have a couple Winter jackets but this one is my favorite by far. It isn't a light weight jacket but it is lighter than my super duty ones. It is a little on the puffy side but I'm happy with that trade off because it has handled down to ten degrees F so far for me (I haven't tested colder). No issues at all down to 10 though and that is with just a t shirt on underneath! Love the hood, wrists and waist adjusters and the hood is super warm, too. Great zippers, pockets and feels very durable. I've had it through just one winter so far and it still looks like brand new.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm but noisy I like the weight and feel of this coat and it keeps me quite warm in -10c temps here in Ontario Canada. But the shoulder material and hood is quite noisy. I don't think you'll wear this hunting. The noisy material is up by the ears and is a nuisance after a while especially if you love to hear only the sounds of the forest. The coat is well made and is true to size. Product testers should have pointed out the noise issue and used a different material in the final product. Bet this model gets discontinued soon. Notwithstanding, OR is still a go-to brand for me. I just hope they aren't starting to slide in quality. Time will tell.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from MN cold must be different than MT cold I ordered this jacket as a warranty replacement for another down jacket that had failed. The weight, fill power and more durable fabric drew me to this product thinking it would be a good deep winter coat here in MN. I received the Green/canvas color in Medium which is a nice contrast of the blacks/greys out there. Out of the box I noticed the total fill and puffiness was not what I expected given the product description and pictures. It was light and did not have as much fill as it looks like. Overall weight was ~50 grams lighter than described, did they weigh the XL? Sizing was another issue, I'm traditionally square in the middle of a size medium(5-7, 165lbs). The sleeves were almost out to my finger tips, length was acceptable a hair longer and chest cavity was very roomy. Buy something else if your temps get to 10 deg F or below.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not warm enough, poor build i am 6'1" 195 and the L fits well. Good length. Love the color. It's not nearly as warm as I expected it to be, given the description. Doesn't seem like 700 fill. Why no cover for the front zipper? Wind cuts right through it. Durability is also suspect. Seams on the interior sleeve are broken after only 1 month. Waiting to hear from the warranty department...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm nice looking [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I wanted a black puffer with a hood for 20-35 degree Fahrenheit weather. So far I’ve only worn it in the upper 20s and low 30s for a few minutes at time and it was definitely comfortably warm. The inside is soft and the outside is noisy. I wear xl I’m almost all my coats and jackets and this is loose around my stomach but not really roomy around my shoulders and chest. I doubt a thick sweater or sweatshirt would work for me with this, but long sleeve t-shirts and button down shirts are fine. Fortunately,i it’s down and doesn’t need layers if you’re in and out of the car mostly. I think this coat does pretty good at blocking winds too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It fit's! I love that it's lightweight and made for layering. I can finally wear my fleece vest under my outer layer. Can't wait to use it when I snowblow the driveway. I'm 6'1" and about 195# and the large fits me very well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This jacket sucks I replaced the whitefish jacket with this one. Which is the replacement model. Lacks insulation to the max I feel like there is barely any in there. Not warm. If I wanted a sweatshirt I would have bought a sweatshirt. The outer material seems same as whitefish which was super durable. Guess finance got a hold of the whitefish to make the new version. Waited too long to return since purchase direct. Guess it will just collect dust in storage.
