I got the Jackaloft Insulated Jacket before riding the CO-BDR this past fall. Wearing it early morning, afternoons and at hi altitude under my armor was a game changer. It pack so small that during the day I can put it away inside the main compartment of my wildcat backpack with out need to use the beaver tail at all. I didn't need anything else on top of it while cooking or enjoying the stars at night when camping. Is perfect to wear it to go out for dinner. I started my ski season at summit county this week and I'm using it all around, during the day I folded inside the pocket and put it in the google pocket of my ski jacket to have it handy, I ended using it last Tuesday on a windy day at keystone, so warm and was my second layer under my Shell jacket.
Great fit. Great materials. Awesome product. Love it on bike and off bike.
The sun is quickly going down and it's about to get cold - what do I reach for? My headlamp, throat coat tea, camp chair and my Jackaloft Insulated Jacket. The headlamp because there's a real joy to having it your pocket when you need it, and not waiting until it's dark and having to use your phone flashlight to dig it out of your bag. Throat coat tea? Well the dust from the trail doesn't do my throat any favors, and It's a great comfort drink to start the evening activities. Camp chair? These dogs are barkin' and someone has made a fire so it's time for the ride stories to begin. Last but not least - my Jackaloft insulated jacket - It's proven to be an awesome jacket for around the fire, or in the shoulder seasons, especially in the high desert or mountains where the temperature drops quickly when the sun goes down. It's lighter than my heavy puffy jackets but allows room for layers below so I can regulate as needed. All around, this jacket is a staple for a nice cozy evening outside! Not on a riding adventure but still want to experience the highs of feeling like you are?? Grab your jacket, go out on your porch at night, zip up the jackaloft and enjoy the good life.
After my son ride with me a couple of weeks ago and use mine, he was driving me crazy to get one for him, it has the perfect balance, super light, amazing insulation, really thin as an under layer, great quality and stylish. Perfect combo for a rider, it does what exactly it is for.
Very light and packable as the left hand pocket doubles as a stuff sack . It doesn’t fit under the armor that I use (Leatt 3df airfit ) but dose fit over it , tad tight but works . Fantastic around camp jacket and even a pillow .
