Love the puff

I'm the type of person who makes calculated and researched decisions. That guy who will literally make a spreadsheet when narrowing down my choices. Lets face it, throwing down a few hundred bucks on a piece of gear that will directly effect your comfort should be a thought out process. I did my homework on this jacket, and have been rewarded with lofty warmth.
This jacket fit the bill for me. Lite enough I won't worry about carrying it and warm enough I can enjoy alpine adventures or cold belays.
As a bonus, this is a good looking jacket. Not too shiny, isn't overly "marshmellowish" and doesn't have some weird baffle design.
It's kept me warm so far with minimal effort into the 30's (F). Winter is almost here, and I have no doubt I'll be happy on sub-freezing mountains and long belays.
Had to swap a Medium for a Small. I have a 38-39" chest, 5'10 155lbs and long arms. Small fits great, and I can still layer. Arms are a good length. Hood fits nicely over my head, but can also expand to fit over a helmet.
Pillow pocket, while not necessary, is a nice touch and is surprisingly comfortable.
