This jacket ticked all the boxes for me as it's lightweight and warm especially when you are wearing layers. On a mildly cold day you could wear a t shirt under it and be comfortable, warm and for lower temperatures some layering does the trick and you're lovely and warm in no time at all. The jacket is water resistant but ideally in heavy I'd recommend wearing a waterproof shell over it to protect the Down and the life expectancy of the Jacket as remember its stated water resistant not waterproof so don't confuse them. As soon as you start moving in this jacket the warmth builds up almost immediately so it really is good to have it handy in your pack for when you start to feel the cold, and as it's so lightweight putting it way in your pack till needed is not a problem as it only takes up a tiny bit of room and weighs next to nothing

Fits very well and is very warm. My only critism is that with similar jackets you can fold up and store within one of the pockets. This jacket has a seperate bag.
