When is the Cirro called for? Users agree, as an insulating layer under a shell on wintry cold days, or by itself on a cool evening by the beach, a crisp autumn morning, or in the shifting weather of spring.

Our Cirro collection of jackets, hoodies and pullovers use Primaloft One® insulation. Synthetic insulation doesn’t get any warmer, or fluffier. Primaloft One® acts like down for warmth, except it retains a good chunk of that warmth even if it gets wet. At only 60 grams per square meter, it's light too. Almost as importantly, it stuffs down small when you don't need it to save room in your pack.

Even though it still insulates when wet, we keep it dry with Pertex™ for the shell fabric, a smooth, super fine denier nylon that uses rip-stop nylon threads to prevent sags and tears. It's a good barrier to water, but it breathes too, and it stops wind dead in its tracks.

The Cirro Hoody comes with an attached hood that is hemmed at the base of the neckline, leaving a separate, high collar to keep your neck warm in addition to the hood, or when you don't need it. The hood comes with draw cords on the sides and a hook 'n loop tab on the back to adjust to any size head, with or without a helmet. When you're not using the hood you can let it hang off the back, or it stuffs inside the collar for even more warmth and insulation. The front of the jacket has a full-length zipper, a small, zippered stash pocket on the left, a hidden stash pocket inside on the right, elastic cuffs and an unbeatable price. Available in small, medium, large and extra-large sizes, in basic black, dark blue, or positive red.

    I've been using this jacket for the past few months and it's certainly one of my favorites at the moment. I bring it on ski tours, to teach avalanche education courses, skiing at the resort, and even riding my bike to the gym in the morning. It's one of those jackets that you grab when you're not sure what to grab.

    I'm a huge fan of Primaloft. It's so warm and infinitely easier to care for than down. The Pertex exterior AND interior is a nice feature. It's holding up beautifully.

    The cut of the jacket is definitely "alpine." It fits slim and short. This is functional in some environments, but if you want to use this in a variety of environments consider sizing up.

    The zippers are a bit "sticky." They have loosened up with use, but it can take an extra second to get it sorted.

    It is a featherweight garment. It's a great piece to have for that costs-you-nothing-protection.

    The hood works well. It offers good protection and helps maintain body heat well. Since it is a stand up collar, the hood doesn't pull against your neck when the wind catches it.

    This is a great jacket for the cost and weight. It will keep you warm during transitions and belays, and let you move fast in the mountains.

    What can I write that hasn't been written? Fantastic light and warm mid-layer. It really changed my outlook on cold weather. I don't have to worry about bringing along something hooded and warm if the temps and weather are uncertain. My ears and neck thank you.

    I like this jacket's amount of insulation compared to the weight. My scale weighed my men's medium in at 12.4 oz, so it looks like the claimed weights are right about accurate. That's pretty impressive.

    I used it among other things on a winter trek up diamond pk in Oregon (8700 ft). I thought it might be insufficient, but it was all I needed and more despite 20 tough miles and ultimately turning back. Also used it on a Wallowa mtn backpacker for four days, got me warmed back up after dealing with freezing rain up in a pass. Great jacket for the minimalist weight.

    I think brooks range really has it dialed on these jackets, both primaloft and down. They are superb for the weight, and have become my favorite insulated jackets period.

    I am 6'0", 160, and I find the medium to be a very good fit without too much extra room. Just right to me.Has been more durable than expected given lightweight outer fabric.
