This jacket a great value, very warm for normal temps here, and even worked great with a heavy sweat shirt underneath in -5 wind chill. The hood really keeps the wind off too. The large pockets are very useful. Love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeBoston The jacket fits and feels great! - True to size
I bought one for my son who is in college in the southeast and ended up getting one for myself too. Nice soft feel to the coat with wind protection. Able to zip up for neck warmth and use the fleece lined hood as needed. Also great for under a vest for colder days!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mebs Better than anticipated.
The jacket has a wonderful dense feel and texture. It is heavier and thicker than I anticipated. I bought as a gift and am happy to sign my name to the card! Hope the water resistance is good. I'll let you know when I get feedback from the gift recipient.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LinebackerU Not sure what everyone likes so much
The other reviews indicate that this is a great product, but I'm just not seeing it. To me, this jacket was not warm for its weight. The fleece component of the jacket was very thin, seemingly there only for feel, and the wool doesn't seem to contribute much warmth. Compared to a similarly priced fully-fleece jacket, this was not warm.
I found the wool to be itchy. Theoretically the fleece interior should help with this, but the cuffs and the outside of the hood inevitably touch your skin and itch.
I also found the fit to be poor. I'm a Large in virtually everything I wear, but this Large was baggy in the abdomen and sleeves, despite being described as a "trim fit".

I love this jacket. In fact, I love it so much I've even use it as a sweater in the house for those few chilly days we've had in the North East this year (still haven't turned the heat on, no need to with this thing available). It's already paid for itself in saved oil. ;-)
Seriously though, this thing's great. Warm, comfy, and even good with light rain.

Very comfortable, soft to the touch, medium weight, warm enough for chilly NY Fall mornings, I like the front zippered pocket to put my cellphone in

Very comfortable jacket and nice fit. Roomy in the areas it needs to be such as the arms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bugwhit Comfortable, warm, wind proof, and well engineered
I bought this jacket for a backpacking trip this summer and haven't used any of my other coats since it arrived. I worked in my garden
last week, in a steady drizzle, and after two hours my shoulders and back did start to get damp. I didn't buy it as a rain coat but I am very impressed with the water resistance of this jacket. It is wind proof, warm, stylish, and very comfortable to wear. I highly recommend this
jacket to anyone looking for a jacket with nice form and nicer function.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pgcarpet Best jacket purchase in a long while
I saw this jacket in the catalog and hoped it would be as nice as it looked in the catalog. Turned out it was even better when it arrived. This is the best jacket that I have purchased in a long while. Excellent construction, incredibly comfortable and keeps you warm all day long. My wife complains that I never take it off. I live in the northeast and wanted a coat that keeps me warm in the house and I can run out and do some errands in the cold during the day and not have to switch jackets. This is perfect. If you are thinking about buying it, buy it. You will not be sorry.
