From Brian


I got this jacket thinking it was going to be my new go to jacket as I have the old style responder jacket in hi-vis and was looking for something for everyday use and not something that stood out all of the time. While the jacket is very nice, I must say the old style responder jacket has a much better fit and feel for me. I would have rather seen a fleece liner as opposed to the soft shell as well as a regular jacket without the side zippers, more tailored for a non-LE responder but everyone can't be happy and I realize that. All in all it's a nice jacket, I still think the older style responder jacket is much better feeling and feels warmer than this.
