          Bought last year- getting another.

          I use it as my "go to" jacket. Amazingly warm without
          layering. Comfortable Wearing in the car, walks, errands, casual
          Evenings out, sports, light rain.

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

          I thought it would be a great jacket to take hiking and with the sale price for club days, it was a reasonable deal. I like the lightweight comfort for hiking and it would be great for shopping. However, the material was too shiny (I ordered black) and I'm 5'9" but felt the arms and torso ran short. I wish it cam in a tall.

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

          I am 5'5" 115lbs and XS fit well (S was too large). I love this coat. I am so warm. It is also stylishly fitted. The only downside is that the upper arms are unusually large compared to the rest of the coat. I'm not sure who is proportioned that way. Despite this, I would definitely buy this coat again. I debated btw this and the MH ghostwhispere and the patagonia sweater. This may be a little heavier than those (on the order of ounces) but the price made it much more attractive than the other jackets I was looking at. I have always been impressed by the quality of EMS jackets and this one so far lives up to expectations.

            • Traveling From Co

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

            Needed it for a fall trip to Texas. Cold in Maine when I left. Not needed on flight from Atlanta to Texas. Easily folded up in my backpack when not needed!
            Price was great, fit was great. One thing I wish is that when you zip it all the way up, I wish you could then zip it from the bottom for more comfort when sitting down. Also I wish you could zip the hood up into collar when not in use.
            All in all a great jacket for as low as 32 degree weather!

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

              I've been searching for a lightweight down/down alternative hooded jacket that is slightly water resistant and was more than pleased to have found that in EMS's Icarus jacket. I was looking at two other major brand jackets with similar features and chose EMS after trying it on in the store. It's super light and very warm. While it is not a form fitting cut for women, it does not look or feel as bulky as other down jackets. The sleeves a bit longer than regular jackets but I liked this because most jacket sleeves seem too short as soon as you raise your arms. There is also plenty of room in the shoulders and chest for larger framed women. There is an integrated zippered pocket where you can pack the jacket into...very easy and convenient. I could have purchased a medium but chose a large in order to use as a mid layer underneath my shell. The large gave me enough layering and breathing room but does not feel oversized. I'm very pleased with my purchase so far.

                This jacket is very comfortable, the hood is a bonus. I bought this jacket for my daughter who is in college, I tried it on, loved it and bought myself one.
                This is my favorite down jacket, the hood is comfy and warm. I've been wearing this almost every day since I bought it a month ago.
                My daughter loves hers too.

                        I use my EMS hooded down as a mid layer when backcountry skiing..great to put on at the top of a climb under my shell before making the descent....also wear around as casual winter coat....very comfortable, great fit, hood and chin cover is awesome. Only very slight con would be that the zipper is small and have to get a visual to zip which isn't always perfect for a quick change in exposed weather. but so far so good. i love it...don't want to take it off. Especially for the price.
