Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remarkable The Hot Forge Hybrid Hoody is an incredible piece of insulation. I am 180, 6'3" and take a large in BD. The fit is great. This jacket is form-fitting, without being too restricting, has ample length in the arms, and the hood fits very well. I have worn this jacket in some very cold Wisconsin weather, down to 5º f, and never felt cold. The weight is another huge plus. Very light. The mix of poly fill with down just works. I do not miss, or wish for it being full-down. The blend is fantastic. This is a reliable, versatile well-insulating jacket, that gets a lot of use. Thanks BD!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Jacket, BD thinks of it all This jacket is awesome as a stand alone for dry cold days and nights or layering under a shell (like BD Front Point or Sharp End) for insulation as it is a great fit. Many uses for this jacket, best all-around Puffy have owned. I haven't found too many, if any, other brands that have thought of a jacket with this construction blend i.e. PL Gold Synthetic insulation where you are most likely to get wet (shoulders and arms) and then PL GOLD Down mix around your core. I like pieces that can be worn anytime and anywhere and handle changes in weather and this jacket fits the bill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite winter jacket I bought this jacket thinking it would be great to layer under my convergent down hoody. Well it works great has a under layer and combined with my convergent down jacket i stay toasty warm at temps of - 20 while ice fishing,,, but by its self it is very warm, very lite, very compressible. The fit is snug, but not to tight, there is room for a lite fleece or sweater. I like the design of the cuffs and the Hood. The only fail in design is the neck is very small, with no stretch or flex to it, no room for a scarf or neck gaiter, almost chokes you when the zipper is all the way up. I don't have a big neck, pretty average, so future designs might want to add a little more room around the neck. The pocket config is just right and all the draw string worked well to keep out cold drafts. I now wear this jacket all the time this winter. It far exceeds my old down sweater from another brand in every way. I also found that it wicks moisture very well, I was shoveling snow off the cabin deck and worked up a sweat before I knew it, all moisture wick through the jacket and it dried quickly while wearing it. I'm very impressed,,,, great jacket!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This Is What I Was Looking For This is a combination review of first impressions of this jacket, experience with the materials from another jacket, and Black Diamond as a brand. First off, this jacket is almost exactly what I am looking for as a resident of the Frozen North of the Adirondack Park. A good lightweight piece of insulation that will function well while glued to a frozen waterfall with the wind whipping in, and look and feel good while walking the dog or strolling through town...with the wind whipping in. This jacket will be on or with me for the vast majority of the nine month winter we tend to get in my part of the world. My first impression of this jacket is that it is going to be much warmer and more multi-functional than the jacket it is replacing (the Access Hybrid Hoody). The Primaloft Gold and Down Blend materials are noticeably warmer than the the Silver used in the Access for the weight. The mornings and evenings have already been getting quite chilly (30s and 40s Fahrenheit) and the Hot Forge has kept me quite comfy while stationary in the cool, wet air that has been settling in on the mountains this fall. In order for a jacket to be truly good, in my view, it has to be able to perform multiple functions and fill multiple needs well. Any jacket that sits on a hanger waiting for just the right conditions (even if it excels in those conditions) is not a valuable investment for those of us with limited funds and unlimited desire to be out of doors. This jacket immediately strikes me as well worth our hard earned dollars. It is light weight (not ultra-lightweight due to its FULL-featured design) and packs down small enough to be stuffed in your pack for chilly peaks, it is made of some of the best materials available that cram great insulation and weather resistance into a compact and comfortable package, and it also has the styling to be something you will be happy to wear around town. It is a piece of clothing that doesn't wait for the perfect day to shine, it simply hits a day on the calendar and will join you for the duration of the season (and if you live somewhere like I do, that "season" doesn't necessarily look at calendars much). I am 5'10" 185lbs with very broad shoulders and a thick chest. I ordered the large in this jacket, which was the right choice for me. I have the Induction soft-shell in medium, and because of the stretch and climber oriented sleeve length, it fits me like a glove with zero restriction to movement. This type of jacket does not stretch, and due to the width of my shoulders the large is necessary for me to have enough room to reach unrestricted for my next hold or pick placement, or simply tie my boots before I clean snow off the car without busting a seam across my back. It leaves the jacket with a less "fitted" form/look, but not insanely billowy to the point where I am going to lose much heat. Dead air space is a good thing for insulation, so I'm not too worried about the looser fit through the torso. Try the jacket on if you can, or know that the sizing will be consistent with what I have experienced with my other BD tops, and does not stretch in the slightest. The design of this jacket is near perfect when it comes to features. Drop pockets on the inside for gloves/food/whatever, a zippered interior chest pocket for phone/keys/whatever, and two SUPER comfortable fleece lined zippered hand pocket on the outside. The hood is the same love it or hate it BD hood we have all become accustomed to. I am one of the lovers of their hood design. The cinch straps are a little annoying to get to, being on the inside of the collar, but it doesn't leave anything dangling on the outside of the jacket. The sleeve that the cinch strap goes through is recessed from the "brim" of the hood, which creates a wonderfully closed/sealed insulation cocoon around your head/helmet/hat while the brim and surrounding material stick out farther to block wind and snow. It is a great design. The neck is close fitting (yep that is how BD rolls) but this, again, helps to seal off wind and precipitation and protects the insulated air inside the jacket from escaping. My only gripe with the design of the jacket is that the hand warmer pockets are not pack and harness compatible. The zippers are not bulky by any means, and they don't interfere with your harness or pack straps at all, but the pockets are rendered useless when using either piece of equipment. I don't often need pockets when I am climbing, and having your hand warmer pockets on top of your rib-cage when walking around town can be a little awkward, but when wearing a pack the storage and... um... hand warming... of hand warmer pockets is certainly nice. You are forced to act as if they don't exist if you have a backpack on. This coupled with the fact that there is no lightweight double zipper that could turn this into a great cold weather rock climbing belay jacket without creating weirdness around your belay device is why I give it 4 instead of 5 stars. My experience with Pertex tells me that I have no need to be afraid of the granite walls we have here, nor should I fear resting my leashless ice tools on my shoulders as I switch hands with water dripping on me to scoot around a sketchy section of ice. It is tough and repels an admirable amount of moisture before it ever becomes an issue. Primaloft insulation is the best on the market, and the down blend simply adds warmth, reduces weight and bulk, and does not melt to complete uselessness when moisture works its way in. Yeah..."simply"... it's kind of approaching Primaloft Holy Grail. I could not find enough days to put my Access to good use last winter and found myself regretting the purchase as things began to cool off again over the past couple of weeks. Black Diamond quickly and effortlessly backed up their guarantee when I decided once and for all that it was not meeting my needs. I would prefer to make good purchases and stick with them, but it didn't work out for me. BD is serious about backing their gear. In a market where there are countless companies to choose from, Black Diamond differentiates itself with a NO-BULL guarantee backing their products, functionality and fit that place them on the top tier of technical outdoor wear companies, and styling that allows you to look good on Main Street without sacrificing the highest level of performance in the pursuit of all things alpine and elevated. Their commitment to creating high quality products and our satisfaction as customers makes it easy to cut through the mass of equipment and gear available to us, and have a true "One-Stop-Shop" where we can confidently get what we need to do what we love. Thanks, BD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too good to take off From brisk morning hikes in the eastern Sierra, bouldering in the Buttermilks, and cold evening onsights in Owens River Gorge, I haven't felt the need to take this jacket off. Super warm and comfortable. Tough enough to bushwack. And it even looks pretty good when I'm at work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best piece of insulation I own I was looking for a light, compressible piece of insulation I could wear under a shell or as a stand alone piece, the Hot Forge fits the bill perfectly. I like the durability of synthetic on shoulders and arms and light compressability of down in the chest and back. I was a bit nervous about this piece being able to keep me warm, but it has worked well. keeps cold wind at bay and keeps me super warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm Piece!! This is a great mid-layer and stand alone piece, i was a little worried because its so thin but it will do the job. Sleeve lengths are perfect and i love the cuff design. My only thing about it is i wish i had some more chest room. Other than that its a great jacket. Pick one up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfortable I bought this to be a mid-layer and keep my warm days when the temperature drops, and it's working out beautifully. It is super comfortable, warm, moves over/under other layers really nicely. Fit: 6'3", 190lbs, I bought a medium as I wanted something a little fitted and it's great...except a little snug around the hips. Not a big deal, guess I can't grow very much. Only con is that the hood volume adjust pull came out with the first pull. Not representative of my experience with other BD products.
