Forge Down Hoody - Women's is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket. I bought this jacket two weeks ago to replace a lost jacket from another brand. I loved that jacket and thought this might be an affordable replacement, especially before my trip to Norway. I have now realized my old jacket was nothing compared to this one! I love the length of the sleeves, I love the size of the hood and the way you can cinch it down to stay on in the wind, I love how wind proof the jacket is, and I love that it works well on top of a fjord but also looks good walking through town. I’m 5’7” and 115 lbs, and the xs fits very well, with long enough sleeves and just enough room in the chest. It might seem tight around the shoulders if you actually have arm muscles, unlike me. I highly recommend this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice Very comfortable jacket. I love how it fits around the shoulders. I wish it were thinner around the waist, but it allows for movement in a way a jacket should

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Through the Wringer I'm assuming this is the equivalent of the hot forge from a couple of seasons ago... If so, this is the best jacket I've ever owned. I've put it through the wringer- ski touring, winter camping, mountain biking, backpacking, you name it. Warm when you need warmth but breathable enough that you can keep sweating and working hard in cold conditions without getting drenched. Lightweight and packable. The fit is great too, not boxy or high cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Backcountry Skiing Jacket I got this jacket for Christmas and tested it out today. The jacket is a great puffy layer for backcountry skiing. It packs down relatively small, is warm and stops wind. It has great pockets, including glove/skin pockets, that are insulated to keep hands and/or phone warm. This will definitely be a go to layer. Not to mention the color is beautiful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just ok This is a nice looking coat but the armpits are too tight. Fits everywhere else just not the pits. Also the coat doesn't lay flat in the front it's like the zipper wasn't sewn in correctly, there is a weird buckle in the zipper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this jacket! I've had this jacket for about 2 months and I love it. It is a flattering fit, just the right amount of warmth, and a bonus feature is the stretchy material around the hands. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! A gift for my daughter, and she loves it. We live in a mountain town, and this is her everyday jacket. But she is also a competitive snowboarder, and wears the jacket even while racing as it fits so well.
