I've had this jacket for about 2 years. I use it all the time, from the trails to the office. I wear it daily in the winter. Coupled with a sweater or fleece, it keeps me warm down to below 0 degrees. So far, it has held up extremely well. The only wear it is showing is in the cuff - a few of the double stitches have come out but it isn't noticeable and doesn't affect the performance of the jacket at all. Like many down jackets, it sheds feathers, but this one seems to shed them at a higher rate than some more expensive jackets I've had. For me, not a big deal but something to note. It is extremely packable, but I'm not a huge fan of the included stuff sack. I would prefer if it packed into a pocket instead, but it is easy to stuff it in the included pouch. I usually just shove it into the empty spaces my pack or suitcase. It shines as a carry on travel jacket where space is a premium. This gives you a legitimate warm jacket and takes up virtually no space in your bag. Can't beat that. Overall, it is just about the best value I've found in the lightweight down jacket category. If it had waterproof down insulation it would be perfect, but it gets extremely high marks from me after extensive use. Buy with confidence.
