I absolutely love this jacket. The jacket is very well built; it feels sturdy, but not overly sturdy (as to limit mobility). It has a nice quality sound to it meaning it doesn't sound like a loud low-end Burton or like a fleece jacket. The sound is definitely not what I bought it for, but it denotes what it serves up: Excellent breathability, excellent waterproofing, excellent wind-resistance, and excellent looks. The jacket has many pockets, and I love the passholder/chain. If you want a nice quality jacket that has subtle looks and a subtle price, I would highly recommend you find a size in this jacket and order it! You won't be disappointed.
