BD ATHLETE MIKE BARNEY—THE CONSUMMATE SKI GUIDE

First Light Hoody - Past Season is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 67.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE Go-to I can’t add more than what other 5 star reviews. Love the more durable puffy style. Perfect active jacket. Outstanding. Plus it’s the jacket I find I grab on cold days on basic coffee runs! Actually I’d love to see this in a even thicker version for non active days. How about a First Light Max version to add to the family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best puffy coat EVER! HUGE fan! Can wear this coat, get full performance functionality, and not look like another (puffy) coat sheep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Jacket Ever This is hands down the best jacket I've ever owned. So lightweight and breathable, but warm and toasty at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome warranty and service! I would buy again from BD just for the warranty alone. They helped me with a minor problem replacing an older model and my experience was 5 stars across the board. They were prompt in responses, answered my questions, helped me with sizing, and made sure I was 100% taken care of with a trip coming up. Despite some other reviews I've seen my experience was was phenomenal even in busy season. As for the jacket I am 6'4 and 205 lbs. With a Large the fit was great in the chest and torso but the length left something to be desired (probably good for climbing though and keeping it out of the harness). Also a little snug to add layers but would fit well under a water proof shell. I ended up with an XL which is just baggier than I like but accommodates the length I need as a tall lanky skier and climber. They got rid of the inner drop pockets like they had on other jackets and there is no way to cinch the hood which is sort of a bummer. Hood has plenty of room for a helmet. Other than that the material feels awesome, gives better water resistance, has a really nice kinda matte look and seems sturdier than what I had before (access hybrid). It seems to regulate temperature effectively and I love the material and feel of the jacket but I miss some of the features like hood cinch that other models have. I intend to use this jacket year round for summer summits, winter skiing, and a go to light weight coat if its anything like what I had before it will perform in excellent fashion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Favorite Jacket I recently wore this amazing jacket in Alaska. I was looking for a lightweight warm piece and the First Light did not disappoint! While my coworkers spent twice as much on other brands, I was the only one not shivering while waiting in line at the local coffee stands. The First Light hoody made me feel like a dire wolf, standing over a felled buffalo and laughing at a pack of chihuahuas squabbling over table scraps. The XL stuffs nicely into the chest pocket, and can double as a (small) travel pillow in a pinch. I wore it in light rain and the water just beaded up and rolled off. The fabric is durable and held up great after walking through some pretty gnarly branches. This is your chance to start making better decisions in life. Buy this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and warm Bought this a couple of months ago, looking to replace some of my other jackets. I enjoy the matte finish better than a glossy look. My only struggle is the cuff of the arms - the seem to curl a little.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, warm, and slim I bought this a month ago and have worn it around town, driving into the mountains, and while split-boarding. I have owned a Patagonia Ultralight down hoody for similar purposes of lightweight warmth, but I wanted something that was more breathable, would fit better under a shell, and would be more water resistant. This jacket more than fit the bill. It fit my body much better than the Patagonia Nano air hoodies do. The sleeves are longer and the shoulders are better articulated. It is comfortable for a full day in the backcountry, and works well both as a mid and outer layer depending on the conditions. My only wish: since the neck zip does go quite high on the neck, I wish the zipper garage was much larger and softer. I am 5'4" and 120lbs, 32C with an athletic build.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Size Love the jacket however your sizes are a little off. I wear a medium in Columbia and The North Face similar jackets. I had to exchange the medium for a large and it is almost too small.
