good deal on 05/17/2012 14:30:42 MDT Print View

I picked one up a while ago at a similar price. My large weighs 7.75oz. Nice fitting hood, elastic cuffs, will be great this summer!

Nice find. Also, no love for the pullover version? It's almost the same as the anorak, just minus hood, so a bit less weight/warmth and a lower price - $63.60:

I have the pullover in a medium, and it weighs 194g (6.84oz). With either model there is opportunity to shave a few extra grams off - you could remove part of the cuffs (they are rather long) and swap out the hem adjustment cord for something lighter.

I had almost bought the hooded version instead of the pullover, but I wasn't sure about how the hood performs in use. For those who own the anorak, how well does the hood work?

I had their vest, and sold it because I wanted some warmth on my arms as well.

I'm really considering picking this up, even though that color is blinding...thanks for the heads up

Edit: My graze colored stoic pullover arrives on Monday. I read that the "graze" color is nowhere near as bright as the pictures show. more of an evergreen supposedly, I'll photograph it when i get it.

I went with the un-hooded for 10 bucks less and threw in a Merino beanie to replace my old fleece...I was a little worried about the non adjusting hood, and figured I'd rarely use it anyhow.

Should be a great deal. 2 oz of 850 fill down will make it plenty warm enough for me.

Nice! on 05/26/2012 07:40:31 MDT Print View

I just got mine. It seems really nice for crazy light down jacket. $70 was a total steal.

I got the nasty green color. The color is much nicer in person. The fill seems to be even. I haven't been over it with a fine toothed comb, but I'm impressed with the seeming quality. I'm certainly not complaining for $70! And it's light, probably 8 oz or less.

70 bucks is great bargain, I am half thinking of getting one but cannot decide on which colour, I know it's a bit lame :-)

I picked up the pullover a couple weeks ago and am very happy with it so far. Great piece of gear for $63 and some change!

Just ordered a Hadron hoody for 70.95 in Vintage from Department of goods, I am hoping it's not too ghastly :-)

How do the sizes run? I am between a L and a XL, so does it run big or small? Thanks!
