Men's Catalyst Micro Jacket
October 13, 2012

This is the best lightweight down jacket I have ever owned, North Face really got it right with this jacket. It is lighter than a sweatshirt so can be easily thrown into a pack without adding much weight or taking up much space, as it compacts to practically nothing. Living in the mountains of Colorado I always need to be prepared for any weather so it is pretty much always with me. This coat keeps you warm on cold days hiking up a mountain or whatever you may be doing outdoors. But if your working up too much of a sweat it can easily be stashed. I used it even in the summer in Mt. Hood, when the sun heads behind the mountains and the weather suddenly changes its great to have a lightweight jacket along. Washes great too. I can't say lasts forever because I have only had it a year and a half but holding up great so far.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
