    Comments about Microlight Alpine Jacket - Men's:

    I've purchased a couple of these jackets from Campsaver, but neither one worked. Size consistency is missing from Rab jackets. I've tried on 4 or 5 versions of the Microlight jacket (some with hood, and some without), and no 2 of the same size (Medium) fit the same! Additionally, the material on the cuffs is elasticized (not just cloth / bias tape), and it's like the old double-knit fabrics in that it snags and pulls threads out of the weave. It may not compromise the jacket's function, but it looks cheap. So for these reasons, I had to return each of the items I bought here. Neither fit well enough to keep; material issues were the last straw. Oh, one more thing: the collar opening on the non-hooded version of these jackets is way too big. When zipped all the way to the top, there is way too much space for air to get in. Very poor design!

    Comments about Microlight Alpine Jacket - Men's:

    Recently bought this for the winter and it proves to be quite warm, blocks about 80-90% of the wind, and has a very nice fit. I'm 5' 8.5" and 125-130 lbs and small fits very well and close. So if you're skinny this jacket will look nice on you. It's ideal temperature by itself with a long sleeve would be around 20 F. With an extra layers it can keep you warm around 0 F. My only major complaint about the jacket is the smell. If this jacket gets the tiniest bit wet it starts to smell like wet dog. So it requires a lot of drying and maintenance to keep the smell at bay. I don't know if this is common among down jackets, but i'd be hesitant to purchase another. So i'd either recommend layering this under a shell in light rain or snow, live in dry temps, or stick to synthetics.

      This packs small enough that you can take it anywhere. Clipped to a harness or shoved in the bottom of a pack next to your emergency rainjacket. This goes with me everywhere it might be cold.
