As the "big chill" hit (mid-December 2016), I received my Women's Kooshin jacket, size large. I was searching for an ultimate-warmth outdoor jacket suitable for my solo trips kayaking, bicycling, and backpacking. Going solo means limiting the margin of error for hypothermia. I was convinced to try the Kooshin by the reviewer who is Ski Patrol in Jackson, WY. (I also own a couple of Trew merino products.) The verdict? The Ski Patrol is right, and so are the specs on stretch and warmth on the Trew web site. This jacket is the lightest weight, ultra-warm jacket I could ever hope to find. I had to take off an under layer this morning outdoors because I was becoming too warm. My only suggestions for the future: please put in a two-way main zipper, and what about a detachable hood? The jacket had its first outdoor adventure today. It is superb in warmth, comfort, lightness, and stretchiness of the fabric. With this jacket, whether I am active outdoors or setting up camp, I will be adequately protected from the cold. Thank you!!!
