Sooo warm and comfortable!

Got this on sale. Now its been awhile since I had a good winter jacket so keep that in mind! Man, as soon as I put it on I figured I had just tried on the most comfortable winter jacket I have ever worn. Went snowshoeing in -13 degC weather and I felt zero cold or wind at all. Having said that, this was too much coat for snowshoeing and likely other activities that cause a guy to sweat. Having said that, a person with layers could stuff it in the stuff sack that comes with the jacket and tuck it away in your backpack for later. The hood is great, the pockets are even super comfortable as they're lined with some type of fabric, so if you had no gloves for whatever reason they would stay toasty warm in the pockets. When zipped up the fabric by the chin is nice and warm. I found I no longer needed a neck warmer. I did sweat in this thing and simply turned it inside out at night and it was dry within a few hours. No big deal. Its got a pocket on the inside designed for a water bottle but I did not use it as it makes the jacket feel very lobsided. All in all a great, warm winter jacket!
