The product was described as abrasion resistant due to the tough Cordura Nylon shell. The shell is not nearly as tough as I would have wanted for the briar patches which line our southern fields. I will have to send my son in to the briars with my old Filson shelter cloth jacket. I would also prefer to have a game pocket with a rear entrance instead of the entrances at the front zipper. Again, I will load up the boy's coat. What the jacket lacks in toughness and game pouch convenience, it makes up for in comfort. It blocks wind well and layers well and is very comfortable to mount a shotgun. As cold mornings gave way to the warmth of the early afternoon, I remained comfortable and dry. I would not have been quite as comfortable in the Filson coat. If you have a young hunting partner to carry your birds and brave the briars, this coat is for you.
