Have used it a few times and it completely meets my expectations. Will look at this for a possible piece of team clothing in the future
I've used the hoody on an ice climbing trip in the White Mountains of NH for three days and it was perfect! Weather varied from the low teens to a few degrees below zero, and I used the hoody the entire time. I'm 6"0 and bought a large. The fit is good, little bit baggy towards my waist but that extra material fits perfectly over a harness. I might be somewhere in between a large and medium, and decided to err on the side of having more room then being skin tight. PROS: **great warmth to weight ratio **hood was a very welcome additional layering that fit under a helmet **dried quickly after a full days use. ** Chest zipping down allowed me to get air flow when I was starting to feel overheated. ** CONS: ** None that I can think of, my only gripe is that there isn't a drawstring waist, but I'm sure there are technical considerations that came into play when they designed this. Full disclosure: I loved this hoody so much I bought 2 more; one as a gift and one for my wife to use when climbing also. 100% love the idea of manufactured in the US by Alpinists for Alpinists.
