No logo; inconsistent pricing

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share

The logo on the breast pocket is missing. I'm giving it 3 stars because of that and the fact that it's not very soft and it's pretty rigid-feeling. I bought this for my boyfriend for Christmas and the XL was too big (he's 6'2", 200 lbs) so I had to exchange it. Was sad to find out that Backcountry's exchange policy is to instruct you to just buy the item again and return the initial one. Well, that is great and all, unless they raise the price! Within the two weeks between purchasing and returning, the price went up $12. Grrr!

Hey dawp195271, just saw your comment about the return... give us a call and we'll refund you the $12 you lost on that exchange. Next time you need to make an exchange for the same item in a different size just give us a call and we'll set up the order for you at the same price- and even send you a free exchange shipping label! Cheers.
