Not up to Icebreaker standards

Reviewed by COShiker from Colorado on Wednesday, April 1, 2015
Nice looking jacket and well made. But the outer fabric is much stiffer than expected of this type/style jacket. It is stiff enough that if you don't have the hood up it forces the neck opening to be open more than you'd like to keep warm. When you bend over and flex the material flexes easily, but it sticks out awkwardly and looks a little funny. This isn't apparent from the model photos, but when you move naturally it just doesn't look right and feels a little off. Not sure if it would break down like leather jackets and be better as it is used, but just not worth the risk at this price. The liner material is nicer than similar wool insulation puff jackets from other manufacturers but the drape and feel of the outer material is much worse.
