Great jacket/Bad logo/Still a good buy

Verified Buyer Reviewed by BKCO from CO on Monday, October 10, 2011
Good quality, great color depth, definite wind- stopper capability. Unfortunate logo on left chest that is sewn in such a way that it can't be removed. Like the flared bottom for ventilation during aerobic activity like snowshoeing and hiking for ventilation. Bottom has two sturdy draw cord closures that can cinched up to keep wind out or to give it a trimmer look for casual wear. Adjustbale velcro closures at sleeves to keep wind out. exterior chest pocket. But returned it after ordering and comparing to Team RealTree softshell version of this jacket on STP because I like having the chest pocket on the inside and the softshell doesn't have distracting logo on chest. Simple design and feature to cinch bottom for trimmer fit make great for casual weat too. Layer this softshell in XL over the Team Realtree windstopper fleece in a large. Tried out yeterday on mountain hike in our first snow - about 30 degrees. Also tried on motorcycle. Very eefective combination. adding a waterproof, windproof light shell over both for cycling, hiking, snowshoeing temps in teens and twenties sub freezing temps in dry mountain cold in sub freezing temps should work well. It's all about the layering, having full zips on each, adjustable bottoms and sleeves to adapt to changing weather conditions and aerobic activities.
