I got this Jacket in the fall of 11. And due the winter here in the Northeast I wore this jacket a lot. This is a great jacket for layering. If you have a CCW it pretty much makes your weapon unnoticeable, zipped up or unzipped. The main pockets are very large and easy to use when you have you pack on. Very light and rolls up easily into your pack when not needed. I do have one knock it is the the arm pocket is rather small. It would have gotten a fifth star if it wasn't for that.
