This jacket is amazing. I was searching for a warm jacket that was not very bulky and the welder was a perfect match. It's a great jacket for everyday wear or for a good day on the mountain. I am ALWAYS cold even on summer mornings (I'm from Idaho) so if your cold blooded and you want something that will keep you warm, yet you want to look stylish at the same time than this is the perfect jacket. It seems pretty easy to clean I have just took a soapy wash cloth and cleaned some of the random dirty spots on it and they come off very easy.
