Men's Quasar™ Insulated Alpine Climbing Jacket 5 5 3 3
A great light belay jacket I'm 5'11" and weigh 196 with a 35 sleeve. I own both the Quasar Lite and regular Quasar shell jackets. The insulated version fits slightly roomier overall all so that I can comfortably fit it over my MHW Nilas (or MHW Kelvinator depending on time of year) as a belay jacket to protect both my insulated and fleece layers and still not be restricted in movement. The 80g Thermal Q Elite insulation is awesome. I wish synthetics would last as long as down, but I guess that is the compromise for lower cost: Longevity. The DryQ Elite shell blocks wind, has good breathability and is windproof. Definitely recommend it for anybody looking for a light belay jacket. June 19, 2015
Awesome versatile jacket! I've used this jacket everyday since I bought it back in November, and it has far exceeded my expectations. I used it for climbing and hiking during the fall, backcountry snowboarding during the winter, and plenty of hikes this spring. Here is my assessment: 1. The waterproofing is excellent, inside and out. No amount of rain or snow got through this jacket, even when I got stuck in chest deep snow. I spilled coffee on the inside of the jacket once, but was pleasantly surprised that it ran right off, and because I shook it out quickly enough, it didn't even leave a stain! 2. The warmth is outstanding for the weight. I used this as my snowboarding jacket all winter, and only wore a t-shirt underneath. A couple times I decided to add a hoodie underneath, but unless temperatures dropped below 10 degrees, the jacket was sufficient by itself. 3. I love how light and compressible the jacket is. It folds up small enough to fit in it's own hood! 4. Breathability is great. I've used the jacket as a windbreaker on sunny days, and as long as temperatures don't exceed 75 degrees, the jacket remains comfortable. Overall the jacket performs as well as, if not better than advertised. I am thoroughly impressed. May 3, 2015
Quality as Expected I was looking for a lightweight/water resistant/insulated jacket that could hold up to rough conditions and still feel comfortable. Nailed it! Thx. January 28, 2015
