Love this, but not quite perfect
I bought this jacket on S&C for under $70 and I think that is a fair price for this jacket. I bought the "flame" color which is not red and not quite orange either but bright nonetheless. I am an orange lover so I was actually hoping it'd be more orange that it is. At any rate, I love it. . It is super warm and ultra light given the warmth it provides however, I did not give it 5 stars because it has no pit zips and it really needs them. I love the Velcro closures on the jacket, both on the pockets and also on the zippered front. I like to carry gloves in the front pockets and find zippered pockets a pain while riding so they are perfect. The inside pockets are perfect for a phone and a second set of gloves (I carry two pairs). The front zip is a double zipper which I like because I enjoy the flexibility of having only the middle part of the jacket zipped. The zippers work properly and do not get stuck in the fabric which I appreciate very much. I have a significantly more expensive Spyder Jacket which has terrible zippers in this regard. I also appreciate the fleece lined neckline and adjustable hood. I find I can zip the jacket all the way up to the neck and then fold the neck down (like a turtleneck) and it isn't annoying, but instead comfortable. The hood does not come off this jacket and does not fit over a helmet either. All in all, this is a perfect jacket for riding, as you can see. I have been out in some light drizzle (live in WA) and stayed warm and dry. I love it. It can be improved upon though.
