At some point in the recent past women’s outdoor gear makers successfully merged stylish with functional. Exhibit A in this trend is the women’s Ergo down jacket from Outdoor Research, complete with funky-cool flower on the shoulder.
Filled with superlofty 700 down the Ergo shines as a layering piece, and at only 13oz and a teeny-tiny stuffed size it works well as a just-in-case piece for nippy weather.
The light weight and lack of a hood make this an above-freezing piece of gear, but one that is equally at home in the backcountry or about town, with its quilted good looks.
A nice touch is the extra large pockets inside, formed by the stitching of the exterior handwarmer pockets. OR didn’t skimp on the finishing either, with tricot-lined pockets, elastic cuffs and a full-length zipper flap and chin protector. If she’s just plain mad, get flowers. If she’s nonlinear, haul out the Ergo. Stuff sack included.

This jacket is perfect for the cold nights in the mountain and would be a perfect for my camping gear.Itr looks very warm and light and this is what I am looking for.
