The Special Blend Brigade jacket is definitely a good jacket for colder days. Its well insulated, and super comfortable. Theres a ton of external pockets and two internal pockets, which are all easy to access even with gloves on. I'm 5'10'' 175 lbs., and got an XL, which fits great. Its baggy and has a nice relaxed fit. Also, the jacket is really steezy. The liner is soft and makes for slipping it on and off a breeze. My only complaint is that there are no core vents to open or close. Theres no insulation on the sides (under your armpits) which helps to counter this problem, though. Bottom line: good looking, comfortable, warm.
