          Not as good as the previous version.
          1) It used to be part of the 3 in 1 series. Doesn't have the attachments for an outer shell.
          2) Doesn't have the side zipper for overheating
          Without the zipper they made it more snug along the shoulder.

                First, I'm suprised that there are no reviews of this jacket! The jacket is made very well and seems it will be quite warm. Nice design. My problem was the fit. Many will need to buy a size up. Also, I was hoping this would be more compactible, but to be fair EMS made no claims for this. As long as you can find a good fit and don't mind that it is not a "fit into it's own pocket" jacket, this is a well priced and well made jacket. Unfortunately, I will be returning mine for a more compactible version.

                      I am 6`4, 215lbs and bought this jacket as an XL. Fit is perfect. Better than the more expensive EMS Icarus XL. I bought the Mercury prior to a 2 week trip to Turkey in Nov 2014 and it was perfect- temps were 32 - 40F and rainy/snow and this jacket kept me warm. It did compact down enough to be squeezed into a small suitcase and basically has held up to a lot of use. Good pockets (including top cell phone pocket), zips are fine no failures yet in 3 months I have had it wearing it almost every day. Just back from a trip to Japan temps again 32 - 45F and this jacket again did great. Wear it with a shirt/sweater is fine. Very impressed with versatility of this jacket so far.

                      Bought it for hiking in cool conditions. Have used it a lot, but only on one cold hike so far. It's plenty warm and seems durable. The zippers seem flimsy but haven't failed yet - I'll give them the benefit of the doubt for now. Comfortable and very light weight for a toasty feel.

                              I know coats are very personal, but this is the best winter coat I have ever had. I have had a $500 Patagonia for the past decade, and it was good but very heavy. I have been looking for a replacement coat for 2 years, and finally found this one. It is ultralight but incredibly warm and well-made. The pockets are great for gloves and a hat, and the inside pocket is big enough for wallet or iPhone 6 plus. It is true that they run a bit small. I am usually a large but had to get an XL for this coat. Overall I am EXTREMELY pleased, and I would have paid over twice as much for this winter jacket.

                                    I live in Boston and a great winter coat is essential. I have been shopping for 2 years and this is the perfect coat. Feels wonderful and terrific pockets. Great workmanship. I would buy this coat again, and in fact I would pay twice as much for it. I agree with others that it tends to run small. I tried on LARGES in the store and they were too small, so I had to order an XL on line. I wear this coat every day and it is the light, warm, and just perfect coat for New England Winters.

                                    Excellent jacket. Wanted Primaloft but didn't want to spring for the better EMS Icarus. I think the Mercury gives all the warmth and protection of the Icarus anyway, but just isn't quite as lightweight or packable. Mercury also comes in a better assortment of colors.

                                      Had purchased the same jacket 2 years ago and thought it was a good jacket. This jacket does not fit the same. It is restrictive around the chest and shoulders. Had to return this. (Other medium sized jackets in other brands do not fit like this jacket).

                                      I have the 2012 version of this jacket, when it was called Mercury, and last year's (Prometheus) and they are excellent. My go-to jackets for all but the very coldest days of winter. I was surprised at how well the synthetic insulation performed. Lightweight, relatively windproof, and water resistant. In addition to the issues other reviews have noted, namely the fit is now tighter (I tried the new one on in store), and it lacks pit zips, they also went to a cheaper insulation, as this one uses Primaloft Sport instead of the superior Primaloft One that previous versions used. All of this makes it still a decent jacket, but not quite as awesome at it used to be.
