A great looking jacket, but a poor performing jacket. I you think jackets should protect you from wind, snow, and cold, then you will be disappointed. Get it at a discount and save it for warm days or just wear it around town.
Wind, water, and cold go RIGHT THROUGH it. Supposedly there is an insulated version but I have never seen it for sale. If you have the option,I really reccomend the insulated one because the shell version isn't much of a shell.
It looks great. Simple design at first glance, but lots of pockets and nice details. The herring-bone texture is awesome and gets attention. Also, the details are evident of very careful design: the herring-bone pattern lines up with itself across the seams. This doesn't sound impressive, but most clothing items are not made this way.
The pass pocket is well placed and convinient.
A nice touch is the double zipper. When the jacket is zipped up, you can unzip it from the bottom to give better articulation at the waist. It's like a ghetto-slit for your big fat body. Never had a jacket like that before and it adds a lot of comfort.
Now that Siver is dead these are going pretty cheap on the internet. The discount prices are fair and make it a good jacket for around town or warm days on the slopes. It isn't so expensive that it will be your only jacket.
The jacket seems to be sized a bit big. I am 5'10" and about 160lbs and I got the small (I usually wear medium). It has a great fit though, slim body and not bulky at all. The arms are cut high up to give a lot of mobility.
It has held up well so far, all the stitches are sturdy. A metal zipper would have been nice though.
