Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purple Ghost Whisper Jacket I love how light and warm this coat is. I have worn it to many tailgates and I get a lot of compliments!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as described One of my favorite MH pieces. So light and so warm! Perfect to wear by itself and great for layering. I love how it can fit into it's pocket, it's perfect for traveling/backpacking, etc... Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely lightweight My attention was first drawn to this jacket while reading r/ultralight where it was highly recommended. I have a 34" bust, 28" waist, and 38" hips. I ordered the M so that I could wear layers underneath. I probably could have gotten away with a S. The materials and construction of this jacket are very good. Though I have not had the chance to take this hiking yet (it's still too hot in Georgia), I did go to the emergency room. It was incredibly cold, but thankfully, I had this jacket, and was pleasantly surprised at the way it immediately trapped my body heat and kept me warm. So often, more layers just feel like something in between my body and the environment. This jacket actually felt like it was generating heat. It kept my right arm warm even as it had an IV in it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great potential, bizarre fit I really wanted to love this jacket, but it has such an odd fit. The arms and shoulders fit perfect, but the body is huge, boxy and the overall fit is just bizarre. I am height/weight proportionate and have not had this issue with any other outdoor brand. I am 5'10" / 160, and I will say that the arms and body are long enough, which is rare in a lot of women's clothing. I'm returning it unfortunately. I do love the very lightweight nature of it. I thought about exchanging it for a medium, since this is a large, but the arms and shoulders would not fit in a size smaller even though the body probably would. This might fit a different body type, but it definitely does not fit mine, sadly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I wanted a sturdy jacket that I could take backpacking in the UP with my three teens. I also wanted it to look good enough to wear to early spring lacrosse games in the Midwest, where you sit on an open field in the icy rain and wind for hours. I'm a fit 40+ year old woman, about 5'4" and 130 pounds. I bought a large because I wanted room for layers and enough mobility to pitch a tent without feeling constricted. This jacket delivers in every area. It dipped down to freezing on our last camping trip, and I had to take it off it was so warm. I love the cut. It drops below my waist so I don't feel cold air up my back while I'm sitting in stadium chair. It packs down to nothing but fluffs right up. The cut is generous but not boxy. I wish the upper arms were a bit more slender (they are a bit Michelin Man), but it's a minor quibble. The stone green color is meh, but the turquoise trim has been really helpful to identify when it gets tossed onto the camp clothesline or thrown in the pile at the bonfire party.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and stylish Love this jacket. Moved to Colorado and needed a warm cute jacket to wear during winter. This is perfect. Feathery light and really warm.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great jacket except for the arms I bought this jacket in a large, and it was too big. The color is great, it is light weight and seems warm, so I returned it for the medium. The jacket fits perfectly everywhere except under the arms. It is very tight and small under the arms. I am 5'6" and weigh 140. My arms are not very bulky. Sadly, I love everything about the jacket -- the color and style -- but it is going back because of the cut of the arms.
