The Lykos II Jacket is one of Kryptek's most popular insulated jackets. 100% synthetic insulation separates the Lykos II jacket from other insulated jackets. Designed to perform even when wet, synthetic insulation dries faster, doesn't clump like down, and keeps you warm. The perfect lifestyle jacket for everyday use or a functional and extremely lightweight layering piece, the Lykos II Jacket now comes in Kryptek's Highlander pattern. Equal to 800 fill-power, the Lykos II Jacket is loftier than down at the same basis weight and provides exceptional protection from the elements for the active user.
I haven't had the chance to really test this jacket but since I keep being prompted to review, I will. It arrived as expected and seems very high quality. I read all the reviews and info about sizing and knew that for me a medium (my normal size) might fit a little snug but I don't like baggy jackets unless its for snowboarding. I am 69 inches tall and weigh 158. I have a 32 inch waist and 42 inch chest and back. The chest/shoulders are definitely snug on me. I looked at the measurements for the large and the sacrifice for a better fitting chest region would be roughly 4 more inches at the bottom and longer sleeves. Thats not the fit I want. Overall I like the jacket and can't wait to get to test it in the elements. For the price I would probably buy it again.

I absolutely love this jacket. It’s very lightweight and VERY warm. I would highly recommend it.

Excellent jacket. Looks good around town and great in the backcountry, though it would be nice if it came with a stuff sack or Kryptek offered one since it takes up a lot of volume. But it has pockets in the right places and you can get a few light layers underneath. 5'11", 175lbs. The XL is perfect. A large would fit pretty tight.

Good jacket just wish I had read the whole description. It fits but not with a heavy sweatshirt.

I’ve been wanting a puffy jacket but not one that made me look puffier than I already am. This jacket is form fitted and looks great. It’s very warm. It does run about a 1/2 size small so order 1 size larger than you normally wear.

"Lykos II Jacket"
Exactly what I was looking for in a jacket. Lightweight, warm, and comfortable. Definitely order next size up if plan on layering underneath.

Great piece, stops 90 km/hr Chinook winds with ease. I find it comfortable on its own with a light baselayer down to -10C with normal activity, easily colder if your working hard. As noted in the other reviews it does run a little small. Very happy with it.
