I've gone through many of jackets in the 12 seasons I have been riding. This jacket is top notch! It's the most comfortable jacket I have ever worn. Not only is the inside of the jacket comfortable but the outer material is nice and soft. I purchased one at the beginning of the winter and then purchased a 2nd one this summer because it was on sale. The only downfall to the jacket is, the seam along the upper back will allow chilly air to pass through so you have to layer on super cold days, which shouldn't be a problem.
