Bought this jacket to give my Northface a break. Solidly sewn, stylish and warm, I have no complaints thus far. No concern about heading out into the Portland night with this on. The grey is super stylish as well. Only issue keeping it from earning 5 stars is the lack of an inside pocket. Great jacket at a super close-out price!

Bought this jacket for my 14year old son, 5'11", 149lbs. In size L. He loves it! I The jacket is long enough in the arms and torso and leaves enough room for layering a fleece underneath. It is also soft enough to wear it just with a t-shirt. A very versatile jacket for any city or outdoor activities. The color 'Varsity gray' is almost superhero silver what makes it look really cool and distinguishes itself from all these black softshells out there. First I was concerned that the color would be too light and show dirt, but after my son wore it everyday to school for 2 weeks there are still no stains showing. The stain repelllent treatment really works. Great product!
