Loving This Item

Verified Buyer Reviewed by George from NY on Tuesday, March 17, 2015
Hits all the right marks for a Spring or Fall mid-weight jacket. It's very comfortable, versatile, ruggedly constructed item with triple stitched seams, a beefy well thought out hood and a high protective collar. Pockets are cavernous even though there are only 3 of them. Velcro adjustment tabs on sleeves aren't plain old fabric but die cut rubber. Plus, the jacket looks great and can easily function as business casual wear or for hiking. I'm 6' 170 and the large fit perfectly with room for layering if necessary. A medium would have been more form fitting and would have probably worked well too since the sleeves are nice and long. One thing to note about this jacket is that it's highly breathable and therefore not highly wind resistant, despite what the specs say. It's fine down to 40F with a sweatshirt but if it's very windy or a bit colder you'll need a heavier mid layer which could take you down to 30F. On the plus side, it's going to be hard to overheat in this jacket esp. since the large side pockets double as additional ventilation with sturdy mesh lining material. I bought the gray color which is unique. Overall very happy with this item.
