I was in desperate need of a good jacket for this season but I'm on a pretty tight budget. I got the Welder and couldn't be more happy, this jacket is almost too warm for me. I love waking up bright and early on the days when its 10-20 below, hittin my local hill and having the park all to myself. I love cold weather and this jacket makes me enjoy it even more. From the pow to the park this jacket will keep you comfy and toasty warm all season.
