Stoic Luft Synthetic Insulated Sweater - Men's - 2011 BCS
From the Sierra's to the Cascades, the Stoic Luft Insulated Sweater serves as a highly-packable insulating layer for staying warm when cold, wet weather threatens to soak you to the bone and freeze you to your core. Stoic outfitted the Luft with 100-grams of Cirrus synthetic insulation that's toasty enough to end pre-dawn chills and capable of retaining warmth even when damp (down insulation turns to mush in the face of moisture). And in order to balance warmth with comfort Stoic gave this sweater highly-breathable Pertex Microlight 30D fabric to control sweaty vapors underneath, and a 3-D ergonomic fir which means uninhibited movement whether you're climbing, skinning, or trekking through chilly weather.

The material is lightweight and has a good feel, however the black/deep/deep color is not the same in person as it is in the photo. The photo looks like a charcoal gray with a bright blue, however the actual jacket is definitely black with an awful shade of blue highlight colors. The sleeves from the elbow to the wrist are too narrow, and the wrist gaiters are excessively tight. Since I purchased the jacket in August, I did not get to properly evaluate the insulation properties.

I have been trying a few of the insulating layer jackets, both synthetic and down. My primary use would be insulation under a hard-shell. This jacket is pretty cool, but would probably be best used as a single piece. The sleeve things are kind of weird when trying to layer with under and over layers. I liked the construction and the quality of the materials, but the lower sleeves were too tight on my arms. The XL size fit my 6'4" 210 frame pretty well except for the arms. The outside chest pocket is nice and the inside media pocket is unexpected on an insulating piece. I finally chose Mountain Hardware light weight down jacket to fill the niche in my ski gear closet.
