Maybe this review is premature as I haven't used the jacket out in the field yet. I can however comment on the general quality of the jacket and the flannel, seems very well put together compared to my last jacket, I think it will be quite durable. Its got wrist gators (I think these are a pre-requisite for every jacket!!) and the yo yo lift pass thing is a nice touch. It's nice to have the option of running the shell if it gets a bit warm or using it with the flannel witch is supper warm. So far so good...happy with the purchase and definitely recommend it.
