Now that I have this jacket I want to bump every other product I've rated 5 stars back down to 4. The jacket is warm, stylish and not as bulky as it looks in the picture. When one of my friends who worked in Antarctica for a while saw it, he yelled, "Great jacket! That's what we wore at McMurdo Station! Does it have the inner nalgene bottle pocket?"
Yup. It has the inner pocket to keep your water from freezing. It has 2 small pockets on the upper left sleeve for pens. It has a small zipped pocket next to them for your pad of paper.
The lower pockets have velcro to keep them shut and the upper pockets are lined with soft, warm fabric. The zipper is heavy duty with large teeth and the buttons are fastened with strips of fabric -- not thread. The hood comes with a drawstring to snug it down tight against the wind. The jacket is very well- made and looks like it will last for years.
I have never been warm enough in my winter gear until now. This jacket is exactly what I needed.
