Lightest warm jacket I've had!

It is unbelievable how light this jacket is, but still warm nonetheless. Definitely not as thin as the Nomad(e), but not too thick either. Packs light and turned into my new favorite jacket for the Spring, Autumn and even Winter seasons.

Mid-layer, could be better?

First of all, I did not expect this to be so good.
There are mid layers and there are mid layers...
I have had different mid-layers from more expensive brands and they all did say the same... "This will keep you warm"
Until this... it is so thin but still so warm and windproof.
I live in Sweden so it can get a bit cold, used it with and without an external layer and I can say that in -15 with a sweater under it still performed quite ok.
"Could it be better?" Yes, it could be better stitched and the part at the wrists may be more resistant against abrasion... AND it could be thicker, but again it is a mid-layer....

Very happy and looking forward to getting my EP Series jacket and pants when they arrive.
Thanks team!

Mostly executed perfectly with minor complaints

This jacket is what I've been searching for over the past 5 years. A jacket that can be versatile enough for shoulder seasons and even the middle of winter (with a shell over it). It's comfy, lightweight, and all of the pockets are very well thought out and executed well. The hoodie isn't going to offer a ton of warmth, but this jacket isn't intended for deep winter - still, the hoodie is there when you need it, and stowed away in a comfy manner when you don't - adding to the loft of the high collar to help it stand up when stowed. Other wins: two-way zipper, articulated elbow, no cinch cords for waist, but it's tight enough to keep the wind out if you're wearing the correct size for your body.

I really like everything about this jacket except that my neck is uncomfortable when I zip all the way up - the collar is designed too-tight-fitting. So I tend to leave it zipped up only half way up the collar - or else my throat feels like it's being choked a bit. I realized it helps if I tug at the back of the collar so that it's tighter against the back of my neck. But design-wise, it doesn't do that by itself, which is a fail in my book.

One other complaint is that the material is very loud when in movement. Otherwise, it's the perfect jacket for shoulder and cold seasons. A MUST-HAVE and I'm sure I will buy any future iterations that come with updates/improvements. This totally beats the alternatives out there: Patagonia, Arc'teryx, Fjallraven - all brands I really love, too - either due to its features or price point.

I'm usually a SMEDIUM - right in between small and medium for most tops with my chest being 38-40 inches. I'm 5 ft 6 in and the Small fit well even though Smalls usually are too tight around my chest/pits. The Medium which I also ordered was too big.

What is Graphene?

Graphene's claim to fame is its single-atom thickness, making it the elemental structure of graphite found in pencils. It exhibits properties such as being tougher than steel, harder than diamond, and showcasing greater conductivity than copper.Notably, it has enhanced electron mobility over silicon. Its groundbreaking discovery earned scientists the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010. We've harnessed graphene's capabilities in our cutting-edge fabric designs.
