The main issue I have with down jackets is that they're only good in super cold weather. Otherwise I love the way they look and feel. It's like riding inside a nice, comfy, sleeping bag. Mmmm. Well, this one solves the problem of getting too hot by putting a full ARM TO ARM VENT across the back of the jacket! If you're getting a little toasty, unzip that thing and bam! you're back to normal in no time at all. I have the Eddie Plaid, which looks a-maz-ing with some baby blue pants. Flossin'.
