Don't let the 700 fill fool you. This jacket was more than enough for my trip into the foothills of the Chilean Andes and the Atacama desert region. With a good base layer, the jacket is warm and comfortable. Size wise, it's true to fit. I'm 5'7'', 170lbs with a 40" shoulder. It has a more European tailored fit and not boxy like most jackets. Though more form fitting, there was ample room for a base layer and enough breathing room to let the down do it's magic. The hardware is good though I wish it had more than the 1 pocket on the inside (It's used to pack the jacket). Though it says its water repellent, I didn't get a chance to try this out but then again, you wouldn't want to get most down jackets wet. Very light yet strong. Price I think is a little high but I'm thoroughly happy with it. I look forward to years of use.
