Jacket is solid, stitching and finish is good and looks like it will last many seasons. Only managed to test this jacket over the weekend in Australia as season is nearly over. Jacket is very toasty as i nearly over cooked in sunny weather so it may be really warm in the cold (0 to -10 degrees). Side front are zippered and the two chest pockets are closed by velcro (not zippers as i was advised). There are pockets inside jacket as well as described under product details. Only managed to fit in a few hours of boarding over the weekend with this jacket and it has kept me dry through out the time. I got a medium and it was slightly baggy/bigger when wearing it against the SW puffy jacket. So far i am impressed with this jacket.
