Cold. It can chase you out of your stand on a frosty morning or down from the mountain where temperatures can be dangerous. Keeping your entire body warm is critical. Especially your core. The right mid-layer can mean the difference between staying out long enough to punch your tag or getting knocked out of the game. As fall turns to winter and temperatures drop, it's the packable mid-layer you count on to keep warm under our Waypoint & Selkirk Jackets. The Insulator Jacket gives you an incredibly warm, lightweight layer using 3M™ Featherless™ Insulation 700 power fill to hold your body's heat without bulk. Our Pnumagrid™ quilting pattern guarantees it won't bunch or clump even after years of wear, and our high-count polyester weave shell has a 3M™ Scotchgard™ DWR water repellant coating that works as hard as you do.

I was tempted to go with something a little more lightweight but in extreme conditions, I'm not sure I wanted to count on some of the other brands' lighter options to keep their down insulation dry or frankly not to rip. Sure on paper these are a bit of a heavier option but in the real world the difference is marginal and they seem bulletproof, pack small and are very warm. Exactly what I wanted for hiking up in light clothing and then glassing in harsh conditions. Can't wait to not freeze, these will live in my pack year-round. Will come back and give 5 stars in a year I'm sure. Just couldn't go all-in without more time in the field with them yet.
Just received the puffy pant, preparing for a Colorado elk hunt coming up this year. Purchased to keep as a glassing session pant to throw on if that Rocky Mountain weather turns cold while sitting. Well, although the quality is what you would expect from Pnuma, to call these packable is a stretch. They are way too heavy and bulky to keep in pack as I was planning. Hopefully, I'll find another application for use, they do seem that they'll keep me warm.
