I literally love my jacket, and am so happy I went with the insulated! has been keeping warm and toasty! I was shocked when it came in the mail because although its black it has really subtle sparkles that glint at different angles in the light but don't let this sway you, I got tons of complements on it! Also, the hood has a strong, straight support piece in it to hold up when rain comes. the pockets are huge and as is the mesh inside. anyone interested in a winter sports coat look no farther!
