First let me say that I didn't keep this jacket. It is a cool jacket and I would have kept it if the front wasn't so much shorter than the back. I understand why the front is shorter, however that's not what I wanted so I had to look elsewhere. If it would have worked for me I would have been totally satisfied. The jacket is great.

I have only seen pictures of the '09 and I own the new one. It seems the cuffs on the '09 are elastic, where the cuffs on the new one are straight with a fleece-y stretchy inner cuff. I really like it and when I saw a picture of the cuffs on the '09, I said out loud, "Yikes!". I'm not saying the '09 cuffs suck, obviously I don't have one, but the cuffs on the '10 are great.

This jacket is f'ing sick! It is windproof for sure, and I have found that that aids immensely in the warmth of the jacket. It's pretty thin, but, contrary to my first assumptions, it does the job just fine. In one of the reviews I read before I bought it, one person stuck their arm out their car window going down the street to check the windproof-ness. I did the same thing on the highway on a 45 degree day (so the wind was nippy) and it is really kind of a weird sensation.

I have this on order but I've been reading about the MH G50 and it seems like a better buy. The G50 seems to be very similar to the Windstopper Tech except the G50 is, based on a bunch of reviews, a lot more water resistant, and warmer. From what I've read about the G50, I think I'm going to send the Windstopper Tech back, and order the G50. Any thoughts and opinions would be appreciated.

I bought this jacket last year and have been very pleased with it. However, the sizing is kind of weird, I think. I am 5'5" 160lbs.-athletic, I bought a small, but I wish they made an extra small. I have a friend that is 5'10" who tried the jacket on and it fit him better than it fit me. He is around 150lbs, so I think with 40 more lbs on you a medium would be great. There is free shipping, so it may be worth it to just order a medium and see if it works. This is just my opinion.

For $10 I feel I got a good deal. I use these as gloves and for me personally, they give the right amount of warmth and let just enough air blow through them to keep my palms from sweating. I wear these casually around town or for whatever I might do where I'm hangin around in the weather, so like I said, they're good for me. They are thin, though, and I can easily see how they could get a hole or snag but $10 is $10.

First, let me say this jacket is great. When my friends and I are hanging outside in the cold, I'm the only one not shivering. The full zip-up to cover the chin, and maybe mouth, is great for closing in warmth. I had nothing but compliments when I got it, and they still keep coming-some from people who have already given them. I would have liked a real fur option on the hood trim.
Now the things I would change. The sizing is really weird to me. The jacket fits me, but it could be a little more fitting. What I mean is, read other reviews; there are people saying they are 6'1" and bought a small or medium. I am 5'5" 165lbs (not fat), and the small size is just a little roomy. The sleeves are too long in my opinion. I have to give them one roll to be comfortable. Friends of mine have tried it on who are like 5'8"- 5'9" average build, and the sleeves fit them perfect. How are sleeves on a small size jacket going to fit people smaller than that if it fits them just right? If I were 5'5" but little, I would have no choice but to buy a different brand. TNF shousk make a size XS, or just make the small a small.
Despite my discrepancies I really do like the jacket. The problems are not that big of a deal to me, but could be for someone else. This product feels good as far as quality goes. It's heavy and solid and definitely worth the money.
