I was putting up the Sierra Designs Gnar jackets today and, of course, had to try one on. Trouble was, once I had it on I did not want to take it off! This jacket is nice looking, nice feeling, and quality made. The 800 goose down fill delivers high performance for being warm and lightweight while the color choices are outstanding. For me, it is a toss up between the blueberry and chocolate for the women or the range/charcoal and syrah/charcoal for the men. The Gnar has what it takes for a cool fall day, snowy winter or breezy spring. The sleeves are long enough to cover your skin to your wrists along with thumb holes that add that extra protection when connecting with gloves. The waist hem is adjustable and there are plenty of pockets for snacks, gloves or your phone. Another awesome feature of this jacket is that it is stuffable and comes with its own stuff sack! After discovering all these great features, I then read the tag and realized that the Gnar is machine washable and dryable. You have to like that! You will find this to be your MVL – Most Valuable Layer!
