light and warm
August 12, 2009

The jacket is puffy on me; I am 5'4" and 125 lbs and wear a small, but it is very lightweight and warm. I agree that it could be an inch longer. I highly recommend this jacket if you want something that weighs less than the nuptse and will keep you just as warm. I washed it in the washing machine and it looks as good as new.

Very Warm!

I love this jacket. It is very warm and comfortable. It is like wearing a soft blanket. The main reason I like this jacket is because there is no layering needed when wearing it. It is a little puffy, but if warmth and comfort are what you are going for, you will love this jacket.

I love my Optimus! I can't wait to pull it out for winter again. I do wish it was about an inch longer---but other than that, I have no problems with it. SO SO SO warm and has put up quite well with my dog's claws---no holes so far---I am impressed with its durability!

Just love it!

This jacket is a great purchase! Great deal for the price, is really warm and the blue color is really cool. I use it for the snow and feel really comfy in it. I would definitely recommend it.
