'Falera'—Swiss for 'ridiculously awesome'.
The DC Falera Jacket combines vintage military styling with full storm-proof function. Tons of cargo space easily carries all your on-hill essentials (and probably also a bunch of other crap you don't need). 10K-rated waterproofing and fully taped seams keep you dry when the weather gets nasty.
- Built-in, removable head gaiter keeps your face warm on super cold days
- Pass pocket at sleeve allows easy scanning, even by lit-up lifties
- Magnetic center-front and pocket closures prevent snow from piling up

Pretty good, black vs blue different material though
If you wear a large, get a medium trust me. I'm 6' and 190#'s. The large was LOL and the XL looked like 5XL on me, serious.
Also, the blue (out of stock now) and the gray have two different fabrics! The gray (listed as black) has more of a durable canvas look while the blue has more of a herringbone fabric pattern that is much more pliable and soft.
I really liked the blue color so I went with the medium blue and it fits well. Long on the sleeves which I like. Standing straight the sleeves go down to the knuckles.
Two complaints/worry - the velcro seems to be stitched on pretty skimpy. Only one row of stitching to hold the velcro to the coat. Eventually I'll have to sew those back on but these are sewed on before the liner is sewed on, so, yea no sure what will happen here.
Also, the insulation - zero zip nada what so ever. Very much a shell but would have liked to see a TINY bit of insulation to warrant the price of this coat.
All in all, I like the coat, but really thought it was odd that the two colors had two different fabrics. The grey/black looks more durable and will probably last longer, but I really liked the blue.
Thanks Dogfunk for allowing me to try on 3 different coats before finding the one I like!

bad ass jacket. pretty light, stylish, and keeps you dry.
VERY VERY comfortable. It fits super nice and stay dry on the inside. For very cold days you may wanna wear something underneath. But its extremely durable. and GREAT. fits pretty long, so for you guys looking for a smaller coat, might not be your style. I got a large (as i always do) but this one is signifacantly larger. GOOOD BUY!
