Is there any more information on sizing available beyond chest size? Im 6'6" with long arms so sleeve length is a concern
Is the red/iron more orange than red, or is it like the colour that guy is wearing one in the picture (ie. red)?
Grandpipe
Never mind, see another comment saying it’s closer to red.
How hot is this Coat? Can I walk with a T-shirt and the coat on a NY winter day and not freeze to death? Because I can definitely do it with my Parka. What is the temperature rating on this is my question essentially
Blin
Temp rating is hard and I've never lived in NY so I don't want to give you an incorrect answer. I've been comfortable in CO walking around in the low 30's and a t-shirt.
In a post below, one customer said this jacket has a draw cord at the waist hem. Some other posts says it is a elastic hem. Which is it on this drop?

It does have an elastic cord and lock at the waist

I had to leave a note because I'm thoroughly impressed by the quality of the jacket thus far. (Been using it for a week.) I did not weight mine, or compare weights.
Before this, I bought a 'Swix Romsdall 2' jacket. The two jackets compare fairly well, but I personally like the Sierra Designs jacket better. Also, this jacket has elastic cuffs which is a great thing to have.
Some other notes - the jacket is a little shorter in length, compared to the Swix, but fits about the same. I like the hood design of this better as well.
I did notice some feathers start to escape from the stitching. I've been babying it really, but I think this is bound to happen, and we need to occasionally pull the feathers in ?
Well, I just bought the black one.
How do the women's sizes fit? Are they true to size?
Seriously, only these 3 colors for men? No blue or anything?

Thanks for the interesting info. I suppose companies that make different color clothing have not taken into consideration that 1/4 of men have some form of color blindness. By the way, I rarely see anyone wear black when they go skiing, maybe except you! LOL
Yes agree! Would love orange or pesto !
I received my Hoodie today and really like it. Here’s some observations: 1) it’s light. I ordered a size S and it comes in at 376gr or about 13,5oz (see pic on scale). I expected something about 50% heavier so that is good. Although perhaps they skimped on the fill but I don’t think so 2) it comes with a draw cord at the hem even though in this discussion it was mentioned by the manufacturer that it didnt. Pleasantly surprised by that. See picture 3) it‘s rather boxy and seems to fit large. Based on the sizing chart I would be on upper end of size S but I prefer to wear more slim fit than relax fit so would have been fine with a tighter fit so went for S as opposed to M. This one still feels like relax fit. Not sure if this applies to the other sizes but that’s what is the case for S. 4) stuffing into left pocket is easy and requires little dexterity. Of course not meant for long storage but definitely useful on a hiking/camping trip 5) fill could be a bit more evenly spread. I wouldn’t call it clumpy but at the arms it does seem the upper part is thinner than near the bottom seam. I think a bit of shifting the down around should resolve it. Just haven’t taken the time yet to properly attempt that. 6) the hood is roomy. Might be a plus for some but a slight minus for me. I just prefer a more snug fit on my hoods. Since I mostly intend to wear this as a kid layer in more arctic conditions, the hood of my outer shell or jacket will keep the hood snug anyway. I do prefer double hoods anyway when wearing shells since I don’t like the feel of a shell’s bare hood. 7) feels warm, especially given its weight. Haven‘t tried it in freezing temps yet (that will be this weekend, but at 8c and a t-shirt underneath feels fine).
All in all very happy and glad I joined this drop

I just received an email stating that my order is going to be canceled. Anyone else get this ? This is beyond stupid!
karthik3685
A member of our Customer Service should be reaching out to you shortly, please look out for that email.
PaigeD
Thanks - someone did reach out, and offered to un-cancel the order. I wanted to wait before getting a shipping confirmation, but if it gets shipped out, this would have been resolved to my satisfaction.
I just wanted to thank everyone for participating in this. I am excited for this jacket to get more exposure. Feel free to let us know/review any thoughts, good or bad! warranty@sierradesigns.com

I wanted to provide an update that someone from Massdrop reached out to me, and said the order was canceled accidentally. They have made arrangements for it to be shipped out to me. I'll provide an update once I've received it (don't want to jump the gun)
karthik3685
I'm glad to hear that. Hopefully it all gets resolved. Thanks for the open mind!
is it helmet compatible?
sky8massdrop
I have had good experiences with my climbing helmet under the hood. Anything larger, like a ski helmet, would start to get tight. I've done it while transitioning but I also have a large helmet since I have a giant melon.
Does the bottom of the jacket have a shock cord to keep out drafts?

I'm sorry but I don't actually have those measurements on all the sizes. I can say that this is a semi athletic fit so the bottom of the jacket does not have a ton of extra room. I wear a large and have no real concerns about drafts unless I'm in fairly intense winds. Hope that helps!
MikeGilbert
Thanks, appreciate the response. Ordered 1 and can't wait to try it on
I liked the men's black with the contrasting red interior, but that's not available to women. The gray alloy for the women is dull/hideous, and it shows up in every single women's coat, either as the exterior or the interior. Any woman bold enough to choose the yellow or the tomato wants an interesting interior color to offset it, not the world's dullest gray. Or at least I do. Anything but that alloy...
Is the man in the picture wearing the men's red (which looks more orange on my screen), or is that a not-offered men's color jacket in the tomato that is offered for the women?
ATPaddler
The men's red isn't as orange as that hero picture is showing. It is closer to what the man in that picture is wearing. There are a few pics with it on Sierra Designs' instagram if you want to look at some more examples of the color
I really love the design and colors (the men's do have better color choices, though) of these but have a couple of questions. 1. Is the shell at all treated for water resistance or amenable to being treated? 2. Sleeve length measurements--both men's and women's? Thanks!
Interesting and great deal but with 5+ oz of down and 18+ oz weight, its definitely a heavy winter Jacket, eg sitting around camp. What kind of down is it? Is it ethically sourced?

Usually you don't want to burn your sales channels.
charliez
agreed - I did post elsewhere on this thread - massdrop had accidentally canceled my order on the day of shipping, prompting this angry comment. Someone contacted me after I reached out and set things straight.
What's weight of shell vs down fill?
Jwalche
I believe there is 160g of down in the men's (small) and then 138g in the women's (small.)
With a small margin of error, 13.09oz for the shell 5.64oz for the fill.
How were the women's colors chosen? I probably would have bought one if they weren't all so unpalatable.
nopenope00
We are just finalizing colors for future years. What colors would you prefer?
MikeGilbert
Oh, nice. A black or red or royal blue or kelly green would be cool as hell.
