I bought this jacket about 3 years ago and this is a long term review combined with initial thoughts after purchase. First, it is warm-- but not that warm. I appreciate the small pack size but there is give and take. The first flaw I encountered was that when the pockets are unzipped the sleeves snag on the zippers. A lot. To the point where the stitching gets frayed very easily and I have to be very conscious about zipping the pockets every time I take my hands out. The second flaw was that the fill is not uniformly distributed throughout the quilting. If you hold it up to the light you can see straight through some areas and not through others. The biggest flaw, however, is the main zipper. It is NOT made to stand up to normal use. A heavier duty zipper is definitely a necessity on a jacket that costs this much. I've had to have repairs done on the zipper and today it actually just broke. Like really broke. So if this is a light duty jacket that you won't be using that much, fine. But if it's something you plan on using on a daily basis, do your research and get something with better pocket design and a better zipper. I would not recommend this product to a friend.
