      This is going to be my go-to down jacket

            Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Icarus Hooded Down Jacket:

            Had it out today for a trial run on a day hike where the temperature was in the low 40's. It was very warm (too warm for the weather).The fit is comfortable - not constricting and not loose (I'm 6'2" and 185 pounds - not skinny but not overweight). I was also pleasantly surprised that the sleeve length was good. I wear a 35" sleeve and this jacket fit perfectly.

            This is going to be my go-to down jacket. I've beeen trying more and more EMS-branded gear and clothing and continue to be impressed.

            Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Icarus Hooded Down Jacket:

            Seems like a well constructed jacket that will keep you warm in cold weather. I was looking for something that would have more of an athletic fit with a hood that would fit over a helmet for climbing. Unfortunately the hood does not fit over a helmet and the fit is too snug in the "lats" region for a good cold weather climbing piece. I am 5'10", about 160 lbs and got a medium. Not a good climbing piece but otherwise a well made made jacket.

                  Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Icarus Hooded Down Jacket:

                  Jacket is great but it is kinda regular fit not athletic fit. I am 5"10 and 170 lbs with athletic built and I was swimming in Large.. FYI I usually wear Large in most brands including EMS... I had to size down to Medium in this jacket which fit just perfect along with nice athletic fit with enough space to have a base layer and light hoodie underneath if necessary..

                  I tried it today in light Rain and water just rolls off and down hold well without getting met or moist..

                  Would definitely recumbent but my advice size down or try it in the store before you order online.

                  Great jacket. Light. A bit oversized (not quite athletic fit), but really nice. Would be nice if hand pockets were lined for softness. Overall, goo jacket

                  Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Icarus Hooded Down Jacket:

                  I wanted a light down jacket and shopped around a lot. I've always really liked EMS's store brand and when I saw this on sale I went for it. I don't regret it at all. It's incredibly light and warm and I can wear it with a layer underneath if I want to be extra warm or nothing and I'm still protected from the elements. It does seem to repel water well and dry quickly. I'm really enjoying this jacket and it's my go-to for everything now. I had another EMS jacket that was heavier and a more water repellant outer layer with synthetic insulation--greater also for really cold days and storms--but this jacket is really versatile, warm, and light--almost like not wearing anything at all.

                  Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Icarus Hooded Down Jacket:

                  This jacket is an inferno for its size and weight. The collar is high and has a nice thin fleece liner around the neck. I personally love the drawstring on the hood. It pulls the sides in so you can see better (great idea).

                  I do agree that the sizing is a bit different not sure it's a negative against the jacket though, you just need to see what size is right for you. I am 6' and 175 and the large was perfect for me. At first I got the Medium based on the reviews but it was very snug. the waist was pretty tight in both cases but check it out for yourself.

                      Was really looking forward to getting this jacket. Unfortunately, the cut is extremely tight under the arm pits, especially when you lift your arms.

                          I was pleased to see how warm this jacket was in very cold and windy conditions. I was not happy about the fabrics durability. I wore this jacket with a 30lb pack and was disappointed that the fabric frayed and tore on the first trip I took it on. It tore where my backpack rested on my hips/lower back. The snag on the jacket ran for about 6in. I have patched it and I continue to use it because it is very warm although I am disappointed in its durability.

                          i use this daily on my way to and from work where I have to walk across a longplarking lot .
                          If it is 0 deg F and this keeps me warm with only a flannel shirt under.
                          I also use it under a shell for colder/extended use .
                          Pit zips would be nice on this, but probably aren't common on this type of jacket.
                          The sleeves were long enough(I have long arms) but it is a bit tight around the shoulders,otherwise fits well,I have the size med.,large would probably be too big.
                          overall a nice jacket and a splendid bargain at 50% off.
