Rated 5 out of 5áby garytrusz Comfortable and light
I really like this jacket. It is very comfortable, light weight, and keeps you warm in cool temperatures. The fact that it is packable is a bonus for me. The size is true to what I normally wear.

Great warmth, Good 2nd or 3rd layer under breathable waterproof jacket. Great to wear under waders for cold river fishing. ONE BIG PROBLEM... binds big time in arm pit area. Restricts movement of sholders. Needs to be functional cut not designer cut. I wear nothing but PrimaLoft for layering and warmth. This would be the perfect layering jacket if the arm holes at the sholder area were enlarged.

Rated 2 out of 5áby KEGS Too little.
At first I thought it was cool, then the arm holes felt binding, the sleeve length of the XLT was a bit short, exterior fabric was too delicate, the worst part was the amount of static released when you take it off. It felt warm and would make a good layer for a thin person, but not a good top layer.

Rated 5 out of 5áby esq1995 Very happy
I picked this up to use primarily as a liner inside another coat. I've worn a fleece under the other jacket in the past, but it ended being too bulky. This jacket on the other hand is perfect. Super light, super thin, and super warm. I've worn it solo as well and I'm very pleased.

Rated 1 out of 5áby OldieMoldy Looks good, but......
I had intended to use this jacket as the insulation layer, over my street clothes and under my shell parka. I normally use a fleece sweater as insulation. The fleece works but I thought that I'd try this jacket. On my usual walk in the woods I was warm enough but not hot, for about two miles and then I realized my t-shirt and shirt were wet with what was normal water vapor that had been trapped. Good thing I had along in my pack a fleece vest, not as warm as my normal fleece sweater but as I was now getting cold, better than a poke in the eye.
By the time I finished the walk the vest had allowed enough vapor to pass to where I was nearly dry plus it had kept me warm enough to be comfortable.
What's going on? I surely don't know, but it was just about like wearing a really water-proof rain coat, or maybe a big plastic garbage bag.
Sorry but I'm going to return it. Now, your mileage may vary, but my best advice is to test it out really well. It wouldn't have funny if my first use was on a three day camping trip and I needed it to keep warm.

Bought this for fall / winter steelhead fishing around the upper Great Lakes. I wear it inside breathable waders, under a rain coat. Light, flexible, and warm. Excellent layer. Unlike others, I do not need a waist cinch or drawstring as the outer garments provide the seal. Note the body has more PrimaLoft (100 versus 60 gram weight) than Bean's similar "packaway" PrimaLoft jacket, but same amount in sleeves. An advantage for hard use in cold weather.

Rated 4 out of 5áby RochesterBikeRider Ok fit...good feel
I am 6 foot and 215 lbs and this jacket in XL fits okay in the shoulders and sleeves but it is a bit large in the waist and wrist bands and as others have said it really needs a heavy duty draw string around the waist. Also, this jacket is fairly light weight and does not compress as well as my other brand. I need to test it for its warmth during our Rochester winter but I am pretty sure it will be a good layer under my shell. PS. My wife wishes there were other colors, but I am good with the green/gray.
