Mountain Hardwear Compressor Jacket - Men's 2011
A Very Comfortable Jacket
The fit of this jacket is very good and the lightweight material makes it feel like the garment is posing no resistance to movement at all. The warmth level is very good for such a light jacket but it is still nowhere near the warmth of it's down filled Mountain Hardwear cousins which are available for just a few dollars more. I was a little disappointed in the very "shiny" appearance of the outer fabric. All of the photos and videos I saw of this product prior to purchasing it had more of a "satin" look which was what I wanted. However this is only a minor detail and does not detract from it's main features. Overall it's a nice jacket to have in my collection and it should be much easier to wash than down filled garments.
