I've had this jacket for about 4 years & been through many cold weathers in Minneapolis, the pockets on the sleeves are handy to keep my gloves when needed, the chest pockets don't bulge or show off what is in them.
Outstanding cold weather jacket. The only thing I would like to see improved is the linkage between the liner/jacket at the cuffs to keep the liner and the jacket shell a little better connected. Used mine extensively last Winter. It doesn't get Colorado cold up where I am at. At 28 Degrees in a mostly static position, out doors...in the rain...with wind blowing. I was happy. I would buy this jacket again in a heartbeat.
2 great jackets in 1 - very warm - kept me snug in Colorado when it was 5 degrees. Liner can be worn separately and is nice looking all on it's own. This is the only jacket you will need!
