I got the Big Sky jacket for Christmas and I couldn't be happier. I needed something warm, but versatile and lightweight for an upcoming winter hiking trip. The Big Sky was exactly what I needed. This jacket is so stinkin' warm and you dont even notice you are wearing it. It is also very stylish. My wife likes me to wear it around town as well. She loves the way it looks. You get it all here: functionality, quality, warmth, light weight, and style. I will say the jacket ran pretty big in size. I have bought Merrell barefoot t-shirts in my normal size (large) and ended up needing XL. I ordered an XL and it was like a 2x or even 3x. Merrell's customer service was awesome is getting it swapped out and my large fits better. You will not be disappointed in this jacket!
