      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.

      Nice Jacket but oversized

            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

            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:

                  This is easily the best coat I have ever owned. First off the price was right, I got it for about $120. Second, it is extremely warm, actually too warm at times. I use it primarily for winter bike commute, lets no wind in, is so light it is a pleasure to wear and is extremely warm. I pack it away in it's own pack, which is the liner of the inside chest pocket, awesome! Never have to worry about losing that. I can't say enough about it, there is no winter activity that I will do that this won't be my go to jacket in cold weather. The fleece liner in the chin and neck area is extremely comfortable. I only wish I could have got the coat in the mustard that was available in the hoodless model.

                  great jacket, definitely worth trying on before you buy, the sizing is strange, normally wear a large, but I was swimming in the L, medium fits snug. Very light, very warm, haven't tested in snow/rain yet.
