Men's Elysium Down Jacket Men's Elysium Down Jack
This Jacket is very light yet very warm. My 8 year old son loves it although it way too big for him
great performing gift
My son asked for this for Christmas. He didn't have much on his list, so despite the price, I went for it. I made the order by phone, fabulous help on the phone, and the jacket arrived practically overnight. The fit was perfect - he's slight, but tall 6' so the medium allowed room for a sweater underneath. The feel of the jacket is marvelous - silky, and very, very light despite it's 700 fill power. Also important, it looks good, not too puffy, more form fitting, attractive. He went out for a one day excursion (32* and windy) and came back saying he was hot. He rides his bike to work every day, and needed real warmth for the cold and wind. This is perfect. It hasn't rained yet, so can't yet judge its performance in rain. I'll send an update after that. He finds it the best of the jackets he's had because of it's light weight, yet ability to keep really warm, and it only helps that it's good looking, too.
An excellent down jacket if you want a very light weight shell and more warmth than the super light down sweaters. When choosing a jacket for warmth, check fill power, but also check total weight and then consider where the weight is coming from - the shell or lots of down stuffed in it. It's tricky online when you can't feel the jacket. Weight and shell material are your only clues.
