Backpacker's Editors' Choice Award Review

First Light Hoody - Women's is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight and warm Super warm while staying breathable and extremely lightweight and packable. Gave it 4 stars because the color is a more muted blue when I was hoping for a more vivid turquoise

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid midlayer I bought this jacket to replace my bulky fleece midlayer. It performs well as a midlayer for ski descents either in the backcountry or at the resort. This jacket is toasty warm, and I found myself sweating in it on a 40-degree bike commute as well as under a Gore-Tex layer while skinning on a rainy/cold day. It also functions well as an outer layer on warmer winter days (35-45 degrees). Sadly/happily, it has already become a go-to jacket for around-town use and errands, even edging out the light puffy. For reference I am 5'10", 144 lbs, 34D, and size medium works great for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile coat! I haven't taken this coat off since it arrived. It fits great and works for nasty weather conditions and for going out on the town. My new favorite and I might need to buy a second for when I wear this one out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I expected I purchased this coat to replace an awesome coat that just doesn't pack down well for travel. When this coat arrived i fell in love with the color but was on the fence about the shape as my previous coat was more structured. After 10 days in snow and light rain, I LOVE this coat! I usually wore one medium weight layering shirt underneath I stayed warm without it being bulky, it looked good I stayed dry. Even though the hood is a bit large so as to fit over a helmet, it stayed on my head perfectly when I pulled it up over my toboggan. Big thumbs up here!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love it, but fatal flaw I bought this for hiking in variable climates. The fact that the zipper only goes one way is a real bummer. I often wanted to unzip it from the bottom to increase ease of climbing, but it only zips down, not up. Good in all other ways but I'm trying to find a tailor who can make it a two-way zipper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect all around temperature jacket Love this jacket! I never overheat in it but stay warm, love the water resistant fabric. Beautiful blue color, good on sizing, comfortable. My go to jacket in Colorado's ever changing weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light weight insulating For such a light weight jacket, this is a great insulating layer. I've worn it from 20F to low 50s and been totally comfortable. It also seems to be decently water resistant in light rain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT jacket! I have used this jacket plenty since I bought it in early spring. Works great for early morning hikes, approaches and after kayaking to warm up. Nice and warm without too much bulk. A perfect fit for me - 5'10" 145 lbs size L.
