WTB: lightweight insulated jacket

Recommended Posts

Looking to purchase a lightweight insulated jacket for climbing. Something similar to MH Compressor, NF Diez, etc. Shoot me a PM if you have anything similar you're looking to sell.

I find that the EB First Ascent stuff fits really weird. I'm a medium in most men's stuff, depending on the brand and the cut (eg, Arcteryx fits perfectly, some Patagonia stuff is tight in the shoulders, etc.), and the medium First Ascent jackets are *really* tight under the arms and through the lats, which makes the sleeves ride up the arms and is otherwise very constricting. The large, however, is *still* kind of tight under the arms (manageable, but still not perfect) and baggy everywhere else. I would definitely go to a store and try their stuff on before you buy any of it online.


Also, their line is kinda new, and I haven't heard a lot of long term reviews, but I'm suspicious of the durability...
