Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have used this bag a few times on business travel and here are some initial thoughts.

The build quality is unparalleled in any luggage I have ever owned. I could tell when I first unpacked it that it would outlast me. The Twill while rough to the touch is sturdy and stain resistant (which I discovered to my dismay with a cup of coffee). I have had owned high end Eddie Bauer duffel's and while they are nearly as sturdy they leave something to be desired in stain resistance.

The zippers feels like they can go a million miles and not even feel it.

My only feedback would be that it would be nice to have some smaller external or internal pockets for organization purposes.

Fit: Runs small

This is an exemplary jacket from Patagonia's line up. The first thing that struck me about the jacket when I put in on is the fit, the size runs a bit smaller then Columbia or Northface jackets, i.e. more mainstream brands. That is typical Patagonia though. I actually prefer a snug fit because it keeps you warmer during the winter by not allowing a air pocket between you and the layer.

The quality is quintessential Patagonia, the outer material doesn't feel like it would hold up to rips and tears well. However for the daily commute it works awesome!

I don't use the jacket as a backpacking jacket but the down is super pack able (I checked!).

I love the color and overall look of the jacket, while its slightly bulkier then the Synthetic version of this coat it looks very similar. Which is a good thing!

Overall the style and warmth of the product is why I bought it, I've worn it on many cold days here in Utah and I highly recommend it for a daily wear product.
