I've been rocking B-dog's series of Jackets for the past three years and picked up the 2014 for a winter coat for those cold, quebec nights. It's served me well so I'd like to honour it with an outstanding review
This jacket is super warm, and not overly puffy as most down insulated jackets you'll find are. It doesn't have much waterproofing, but I've never had a problem with getting wet or anything like that in this coat. Orage makes some of the best wrist gaiters in the game (not too obtrusive and really thick) which is cool too. The jacket has some fleece lined pockets which are really nice when you're just wearing the jacket around town and don't have gloves.
The designs seem to follow some classic hockey jersey styling, so I love it. (outside of the mustard) I think it looks really clean, and the zippers and cinches are all well placed. The cut of the jacket is great as well.
The fit is long and tailored, but not so baggy. I really love that about this actually as I can wear it around town and on the hill as well! I wear a size XL and i'm 5'11 which i think is the perfect size and length for me without having them go down to my kneecaps.
Great so far. I wore it all winter for a year and there's no rips or tears or anything. Orage makes a good product. The white stripe is a bit dirty, but hey it's white, it always gets dirty.
This coat is probably the best winter coat I've owned, so comfy and warm. It also looks awesome which is a huge plus. Highly recommended for anyone in the market for a down coat.
This jacket is so dope. For those wondering, it has 2 side pockets that you might not be able to see on pics (where you would put your hands). It has multiple cargo pockets inside.
It's perfect during the whole season, ski pow keep the sleeves on and you'll be warm, trust me, this jacket keeps you WARM. Skiing park in easter take them off and shit will be steezy as hell. Seriously best jacket I ever owned, orage top quality as always, plus it's bog's pro model, can't go wrong with that. I find the yellow colour dope, was kinda scared at first that it would look weird but no, imo much better than the boring black one.
Look at your jacket, now back to mine, now back to your jacket, now back to mine. Sadly, it isn't mine. But if it stopped being a Walmart jacket and got zip-off sleeves it could look like mine. Look down, back up, where are you? On a cold, snowy mountain top with the jacket your jacket could look like. Whats in your hands? Back at me. I have it. Its an Orage toque with a trip for two to Retallack. Look again, the trip for two is now Phil Casabon himself. Anything is possible when your jacket has insulation and this many pockets. I'm on a ski lift.
But seriously.. You're sitting on your couch, you're browsing NS, and your life is passing you by. Keep procrastinating, over and over. Well, maybe I'll go order some Orage next year. Maybe next semester. No, do it right now.
