Rated 5 out of 5 by Tom42 Love this Jacket
Highly recommend. Great quality and warm/wind resistant (although the coldest its been in New England so far has been around 30 degrees). Love the athletic fit and that I can zip the sleeves off when it is warmer to wear it as a vest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChicagoJimmy What The Product Listing Does Not Tell You
Yes, this jacket is all kinds of awesome. I bought mine in-store at the urging of my Significant Other who said "it looks very cool."
However, as an online shopping addict who over analyzes everything, I once again see a product listing that leaves out key features of a product that might speed up the buy decision.
So, I'll fill you in...
First, the pockets are very big and very smartly designed in that they dip down about 2 inches (inside) below the zipper opening. Meaning? Your wallet, keys, or smartphone will NOT fall out even with the pockets fully unzipped.
Second, this jacket has a two-way zipper where you can unzip it from the bottom. This makes it super comfortable when driving or sitting somewhere.
Third, as a 6'1", 215 pound dude, the jacket has a nice "athletic fit" without being too tight to put on a sweater underneath. If you are a pro bodybuilder or rocking a pre-Nutri-System Larry the Cable Guy type physique, skip this jacket. If you are slim, average, or you have a few lbs. to lose (like this reviewer), the fit will still be great.
(You're Welcome, Dick's).

Great jacket, light weight, comfortable and really warm. Worn it several times out in the snow, it's better than many heavier long coats I have. Plus it looks good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by clemens7 EXCELLENT JACKET!
I had a soft shell jacket that I loved but became unwearable after 5 years, I looked to replace it but was sure I would never find a jacket I liked that much. This one seriously surpassed all of my expectations. It's a perfect fit - form fitting but still allows for layering, it's super stylish, and actually much warmer than other soft shells. It doesn't need to be layered in my opinion unless it's less than 25F. The sleeves unzipping is a pretty cool bonus - it can be a vest in the cool seasons or if you get too hot backpacking in cold weather. Seems to be of a high quality make, and the price is very fair.
