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

        I have worn this jacket in 25-55 degrees outdoors and have been very comfortable. I have found with down filling that occasionally a feather may come out. Checked other brands: Arc'teryx, Columbia, Eddie Bauer, LL Bean and North Face. Bean and Bauer were the closest to compare. Bean's Ultralight Jacket and Sweater have a slightly higher loft rating; 850 to 800, both Downtek treated. But check the down fill weight: EMS-4.5 oz, Bean jacket-3.45 oz, Bean sweater-2.6 oz. In overall weight EMS fell in between at 12.8 oz compared to Bean jacket-14 oz and Bean sweater-10 oz. The discounted price I paid compared to the price of the Bean jacket with 20% off was still 25% less! I am happy with my purchase.

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

          I bought this for a lightweight and warm layer in my winter backpack. I am very impressed with how warm it is and how little it weighs. Out performs whatever else I had in my pack like fleece, wool, etc. Put it under Goretex and I'm not sure what could ever go wrong. Well made, zipper pockets are great. I like it.

          Nice down jacket for the everyday

          Pros

          • Fits Well
          • Good price
          • High quality material

          Cons

          • A bit bulky

          Best Uses

          • CASUAL WEAR

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

          I got this jacket at the same time as ordering a Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer. I ended up keeping both jackets. The Ghost Whisperer is my hiking jacket, as it packs down to a really small size, and this jacket I wear for everyday trips outside and to work. The jacket is nice, but even when it is crunched up it is fairly bulky compared to some other down jackets.

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

            I've been wearing this jacket for work for about a week (I'm a reporter) and on a couple light hikes. Fall temps have been pretty moderate overall, but the jacket performs well just standing around or exerting moderate effort. I really like the color - Blue Smoke - haven't seen anything else out there like it. I've had trouble with zippers on LL Bean jackets, but so far the zipper on this works great, just like it's supposed to. The jacket is also lightweight and easily packable, not taking up much room in my daypack when I need to take it off. The only minor drawback so far comes from the down - yesterday a small feather poked through the outer wall. Not a big deal, but I'm hoping this isn't a regular thing.

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

            The only equivalent jacket that I found which had a higher fill rate was L.L. Bean's version (850 as opposed to 800). That one cost more, especially considering I bought mine on sale from EMS. The EMS Icarus is a quality down jacket for a very reasonable price.
