Surprisingly a great jacket for a modest price

  • By Faustino from San Francisco CA USA on Tuesday, July 15, 2014
  • Pros: Warm and light weight
  • Cons: Don't know of any
  • Review: Great jacket for a modest price. I was skeptic when ordering jacket but when the jacket arrived I was pleasantly surprised. When ordering it was suggested that I ordered one size up from the size I usually wear, the jacket fits great. The only reason I gave a four out of five was because there's always room for improvement, so I don't know what it is. Finally, was a good investment I'm very happy with the jacket.

Nice jacket, funky zippers.

  • By Riley from Belt MT USA on Friday, January 25, 2013
  • Pros: Good materials, workmanship, and fit. Fairly warm, too.
  • Cons: The Zipper.
  • Review: The jacket is well made, very comfortable, and warmer than I expected. The only downside is relatively minor, and that is the zipper that others have mentioned. The sharp edges of the teeth are a bit annoying, but I can live with that. I do wish it wasn't the shiny bright gold color. Doesn't really look like brass (though I suspect it is.) It looks a bit odd against the black fabric. A duller brass color or a dark color would be an improvement. I am actually thinking of trying some ways to give it a patina.

    I got a size larger than I normally wear, and it is just right. I wear it most every day unless it is real cold out.
