The aspens give you quite a show once a year, and the Dakota Grizzly Saxon Jacket fends of the chill and sprinkles so you can see them do their thing. In keeping with your rugged urban style, the Saxon's waxed baby canvas outer fends off stray drops or flakes while you stroll through town or down a leaf-covered dirt road. And if the temperature drops, you can easily slide the nylon quilt lining over a sweater, zip it up, and let the thin layer of polyfill insulation hold in the warmth. Plus, with so many pockets, you won't have to leave your hat and gloves at home.
I have been looking for a similar jacket for sometime. My criteria was that it had to work in the rain yet be able to transition to the pub. I have not had the opportunity to test it in our mountain climate; however, at one-half off, I thought the deal was too good to pass up. Fits me in the shoulders and waist very well. Grizzly seems to fit a modest athletic build.
