Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the jacket, wish I could get my hands on larg Just purchased this one since it was such a good deal hoping I could make it work. Unfortunately I need a size down but there is no more available. It’s a really warm jacket and well made. Material is thick enough to not worry about everything around you and piece of mind with water treated down. I got both this and the ARC Cerium LT to see which I liked which is more of an ultralight one but I’d would much rather take the few extra ounces for the forge hoody if it fit me. And it’s warmer even though the ARC has a decent amount of 850 fill, so just an example that fill power doesn’t mean everything. Again if this fit me, I’d take it over the way more expensive ARC Cerium. If you can fit the XL, get one while you can! I’m 5’11 175 ibs and it’s a tad too baggy on me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4900 meters in Los Andes!!! 16,000 feet high!! I work at a mine in Peru, Los Andes, 16,000 foot of altitude, I choose Black Diamond Forge Hoody jacket because of the specs given by the salesman in the Coast of Peru. The test will be at the mine. After one week of wearing it, my comments: ..nice design, hoody, pockets, adjustment strings, very comfortable and lightweight. ..warm keeping, I walk outside several times a day, Andes weather at this altitude is tough, warm keeping is more than acceptable, specially at night, I wear only a t-shirt under; with a cold wear layer should be outstanding. ...water resistant, do not expect to face a rain with it, but chilli small but cold rains, very good performance; rain cover is a must to face big rain. ...price, expensive here in Peru, because of the logistics, 250 dollars, but a little cheaper the North Face or Patagonia for the comparable specs. I strongly recommend this jacket, and the brand Black Diamond, New in Peru....Cesar

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a great piece of clothing I have had it for just over a week now. The first time I wore it out it was lightly snowing and I had to walk to the mail box 50 yds total walk. By the time I got back inside I was soaked all the way through. It says DWR coating, but come on, really !?? I am not satisfied.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fits great, warm, but sheds feathers After two uses I noticed I was loosing feathers. Only one or two at a time, but I loose some with every use. Everything else about the jacket is great and I still wear it often. If BD could figure out better feather retention I would definitely recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost There!!! I wore my new jacket for the first time last weekend skiing in Aspen and I loved it. But when the weekend was over I noticed a small hole in the armpit. I know I have the right size. I’m 6’1, 169 wearing a M. So it looks like I’m going to be duck taping it pretty soon, which I’ve done with other ski apparel in the past; just bummed that I will have to do it again with my new jacket, especially since it’s brand new.
