Not a bad deal...but it's more of a kick around jacket. Medium weighs 22 oz.'s according to customer service. I did pick up a women's medium vest weighing 9oz for $6 and change w/free shipping. I spoke with Debbie on the phone and she was very professional, courteous, helpful & amiable. Surprised me actually.
If I can't get used to the backward buttoning I'll probably just resell it locally. Thanks for the heads up. Didn't really buy it for backpacking.
