This is my second jacket. I use it for cross county skiing when the weather is cold. Love how light but yet warm it is. Got the bright green for snow.
These pants weren't quite what I was hoping/looking for, but I'm not disappointed in their quality or performance, for what they are, and especially at this amazing price. They offer little-to-no insulation (such as I get from running tights), but ARE wind and water-resistant, so are a worthy addition to my late-spring and early fall gravel- and road-cycling, at temps >55F, especially when I do these things in the rain. I'm 5'3", 125 pounds, and not "lithe" in build. So, while the pants (small) fit just right, even with my chamois underneath, I find them slightly restricting in the knees when I put tights or thin wool (IceBreaker) pants underneath. One plea: please put reflective highlights on the lower legs (calves) of your next edition. The only reflective patch on these are on the front, near the waist - not a spot that's going to be seen by vehicles approaching from behind.
I've packed my new bag but not traveled with it. So far, so good. I like the inside pockets to help me find those always lost socks, etc., and I like the outside pockets to add the last minute items you remember after the bag is zipped up.
Comfortable, great colour (although not similar to the website colour for crimson), warmish, excellent fit. Issue is the front pockets are very deep so anything you put in them adds to your hip area where there's no extra space rather than smaller waist area where there's actually room. Also the jacket is really not tailored for women's shape, it's pretty much straight. And it is more of a wind stopper in the south than a wind stopper in the north, we are just north of the Arctic Circle and I could feel the cold seeping in after a few minutes outside in minus 32 celsius. Overall a great jacket for medium temperatures or with layers in colder temperatures and wear it when you are not trying to cut a svelte silhouette.
Besides being a good quality the vest looks just like the picture shown. The shipping was only a few days without paying extra shipping fees
The layer is what I expected, form fitted but, not to tight. I thought it was true to size
I love this coat and I love this company. I looked at everything on the market and kept coming back. I wanted something long and warm that wasn't your standard puffer and that would hold up to being outside in Colorado winter all day. It was more important to be warm than stylish but this absolutely has both and my vanity is grateful for it. The coat has a fantastic quality of construction and a great aesthetic. The hood is deep and adjustable and has a better shape than similar styles. The coat is incredibly warm and comfortable and my favorite parts are the cozy fabric with which they lined the hand pockets (wish it were in all four pockets) and magnets in the trim. I also had some returns and exchanges hunting for the right size and style and the customer service was fantastic. I also own the alpha pro jacket and it's the lightest, warmest and most versatile jacket of it's style I've ever owned and I grew up in CO with mountaineering family. Red Fox is now my go-to. My only critiques are I wish there were more city friendly, (versus find me in the snow) color options.
I purchased a quarter snap pullover from the Red Fox store in Boulder a while back. It is very, very warm, almost too warm to wear by itself around the house. So when I started to search for a jacket I could wear to Green Bay football games and go on long winter walks with my dog in northeastern Wisconsin, I turned again to Red Fox.
When first opening the package, don’t worry about how light the jacket is. The fabric technology is light and keeps you very warm.
The lighter weight makes this jacket very versatile.
Here are my impressions from first extended use outdoors when I tried the jacket out on a cold snowy day walking my dog wearing boots, jeans and a long sleeve jersey.
1. The jacket kept me dry and warm. When fully buttoned up, I could feel the warm air pushing up to my head. It has drawstrings at the neck, mid level and bottom to help adjust the snugness and warmth retention. I do wish the tabs on the drawstring were bigger so easier to grasp with my gloves on.
2. I liked the extra length going down to my thighs. I am 5 ‘ 10 “ tall, 210 pounds. I bought the XL 56 size which fits well.
3. The inner cuff in the sleeves creates a tight seal with gloves.
4. You can adjust how far the hood extends out to create more protection from blowing snow or pull back to increase overall visibility. The raccoon hood trim is nice looking, but collects a lot of wet snow.
5. The jacket has two inner pockets to keep electronic devices warm in extreme cold. It also has two generously large outer pockets that easily fit gloves and the wool beanie that I did not need. I wish the zipper closure was at more of an angle to make it easier to slip my hands into the pocket.
6. All exterior zippers are well protected to prevent any moisture or colder air sneaking in.
I am very happy with my purchase. I enjoy having a lighter weight jacket that can keep me warm in any of the winter conditions I might experience here in Wisconsin.
Not too hot, not too cold, but just right! This down jacket is very comfortable in the lower temperatures so far and insulated hood is fantastic! I love the inside zippered pocket as it is large enough to hold essentials. Thank you for a well designed beautiful jacket. Debbie
These base layer bottoms are the best most comfortable base layers ever. Almost don’t want to take them off. Size is good. Warm and dry. But you don’t get sweaty. 👍👍
I love this Polartec lightweight jacket. Full zip front and hood for temp control, plenty of handy pockets, soft & comfy, good fit.
I thought the vest would be like the previous vest I bought and love!
This vest has less loft and is a bit smaller .
I was hoping to get the green that was more brighter ( as my friend got ) about 2 week s before I ordered mine .
The green had changed and was darker ( more like a camouflage green ) I was bummed about that.
I really like the idea behind this jacket: stops wind yet breathable. It fits well and looks good. I haven’t put it to the real test yet, but I hope to take it to the mountains soon. I’ll let you know after field testing it.
This backpack is perfect for a week long trek in the woods. Some of the features that make it lightweight are that it is made of a fabric called Robic, which is durable. It also has aluminum buckles that won't crack and or break. Weighing in at just over 4 pounds, this pack has features such as a removable "brain", an area for a hydration bladder as well as hose vents, adjustable torso and shoulder straps and you can hang all sorts of stuff to the outside of this pack. Since the Appalachian Trail is basically a series or weeklong hikes where you get to a town to rest, recharge and resupply at the end of the week, this would be a good AT Thru hike candidate.
Will use for Skiing and Hiking in ALASKA and CANADA. Very warm and well made.
This is a great lightweight and sturdy bag that I can carry my pro-DSLR with 3 pro-lenses, snacks and a water bottle and a light jacket. Lots of simple storage inside the bag although not as many fancy things like in a typical big name brands. The external accessories like the loops for poles, carabiners, etc. are amazing. Perfect for day/overnight tips. The price is just incredible for such a bag and Redfox never disappoints.
