Great jacket

Reviewed by Bob from NW on Saturday, July 24, 2010
This is a great jacket, especially for construction work. I think the reason it is so popular is because most construction guys have at least one of these and they keep buying them. Some of the features that folks don't like are perfect for working.

Not all that warm if you are standing around but just right as a top layer when working up a sweat in the cold.

Long arms don't ride up and collect rain when doing overhead work.

Short torso length rides above the tool belt. This is CRUCIAL for a carpenter's jacket!

This short length can be a problem for the casual wearer as it rides up when sitting in a car seat and might let a draft down your backside.

One problem for work is the nylon lined sleeves. If you work with fiberglass at all you know what I'm talking about.
