This is a great jacket. Super light and super warm, in one package... so much so its made me rethink what I need to layer when I head outside. The outer fabric is tough, and definitely resists tears and rips... I've taken it through woods, crawled around under a car, dragged it across some pretty rough surfaces and there isn't a mark on it. The fit also is great for moving around. Nice long sleeves that are snug but not tight for guys with bigger arms. Side side panels also cinch around the waist nicely, and take all the excess material out... which gives an a closer fit and a more athletic cut that my girlfriend likes. The finishing is also nice, with softer fabric inside the deep pockets and a nice fabric up against your neck. Love the coat, and really happy I've solved my cold-weather, no-nonsense warm jacket needs for the next year or so.
