An incomparable jacket

By Wagoneer89


I have never owned, or seen, anything that compares to this jacket. Warm in the coldest weather, comfortable in cool weather. The first place to look when you loose your keys, 'cause "I know I put them in there some place!" I've had mine for Tahoe winters for (I believe) 9 years. When it finally wears out I will HAVE to buy another. I won't be able to live without it!


Excellent jacket!

By Steven


Really like this jacket. It fits well, looks sharp, and is very warm. I've used it on several days now in temperatures well below freezing and it does the job.


Lots of nice features.

By Cal


Love all of the extra pockets. The large pockets at the chest with Velcro closures especially useful for notepads.
For the sf Bay Area this jacket using the supplied liner is almost too warm.
Jacket runs big so had to reorder a size smaller.
Great quality. Should get several years of heavy duty use from this purchase.


Great coat

Great service coat. Very versatile.



By Jim the Runner

from Alberta, Canada

I live in Canada, the colder part of Canada where we get tons of snow. Last year there was times the temperature was -40 Celsius and this jacket still kept me warm. I can fit my winter gloves, hat and a small flashlight in the pockets it is great. This jacket is a windbreaker as well. I HIGHLY recommend this jacket it will blow your mind.

Something you simply must have !!!


Not for the slim

By A

from CA

At first, I was really impressed with the jacket. It looks great, has a real nice liner, and has tons of pockets. But it's really cut for more stocky people I think. Although it fits my chest fine, it's just too big around my lower torso. And despite being an XLT, it's also cut an inch or so too short in the sleeves.


Good Coat for Cold Winters

By Pudgy the Bear

from Wisconsin

I bought this coat last winter and it is the best coat I own! Used it on EMS calls and it got smelling gross and body fluids all over it. Threw it in the wash and it was fine. Washed it about 3 times in a month and it never got damaged in any way.


Best jacket I've owned


from USA

I used this jacket for daily use in the outdoors. It is extremely well made and versatile. Thanks for making it.


Nice Jacket

By John

from Roanoke, VA

I've owned this jacket for about two years. Overall I must say this is a nice jacket. It's kept me dry and warm.

Durability: Everything has held up very well. The inside lining of the outer jacket has torn at the left sleeve. This is a minor inconvenience, but I feel it should be mentioned.

Performance: The jacket IS very warm. I love going outside in rain, snow, cold, etc. This jacket has performed well during long walks, hikes, playing with dog, and walking through brush. For the most part, the jacket keeps you dry.

Fit: Yes, it is a little bulky (as expected), however still comfortable enough to maneuver around. I feel the jacket could be an inch or so longer, but that is my personal preference.

Cons: Besides the aforementioned sleeve tearing and being a little short... I would say the jacket is not 100% waterproof. I once had a slip of paper ruined that was stored in a sleeve pocket (fully zipped). Sometimes the sleeves are a bit wet after an extended duration of time in the rain. However I have never been "soaked" in this jacket, and overall it keeps you pretty dry.

My main complaint is that the hood does not stay in place in high winds. When riding a bicycle in the rain, or running, the wind can easily blow the hood back and my face/head exposed to the rain. I've managed to rig it to stay down at times... but ultimately this is the reason why I will move to a different jacket. I would recommend improving this feature.

Overall: Great jacket for everyday use, cold weather, and light rain/weather protection. For the price, I would expect better quality and not to experience very simple issues such as a hood that cannot secure down.
