Special Blend's Utility Jacket doesn't mess with fake animal fur or out-of-control puffy insulation.

First off it's a sweet jacket! Mine is black and did NOT have the funky rainbow colored rings on the front, which I was stoked about! The liner however is purple as can be. The purple like you see on the inside of certain "Vampire" capes used for Halloween!!! It's a total "mid weight" shell IMO. Definitely not a thin one and definitely not down. Perfect for me. Plain, simple and functional. Baggier fit but not crazy like some. Only wish it had zip-in. Get it!!
Nice Coat, Tacky Lining
This coat is seriously great... if you don't mind a Grimace (TM) purple hood and inner lining. Let me re-emphasize in case you didn't catch that last part... GRIMACE PURPLE!! On a BLACK COAT!! Does the Grimace reference date me? Okay, then BARNEY PURPLE!!! They should warn you before you waste your cash on shipping. I'm still recovering from the shock. Years of therapy may be required to cease the traumatic flashbacks of opening the box.
Love this jacket!
Cool looking and warm and lots of pockets! Love this jacket!!!...
This is an absolutely fantastic jacket. Worth every penny. Everything you could want in a jacket and then some. All zippers/snaps/pockets are easily manageable with gloves on. The bungee pass holder is super practical. Completely waterproof. Keeps you warm on the coldest days, but light enough to wear when its 60 out in spring. I'm sold on SB stuff.
Great jacket. It fits nice and looks wicked. I've used it twice now both times in -16 degrees weather and it kept me nice and warm.
yooo sick jacket my buds got one its so fly, mines on its way and i was just wondering if you think a mens small will fit me im 5'2, i sure hope it does
wicked slick coat.. no doubt.
So yeah i ordered up the blue one in size large and it was mondo baggy so i am sending it back.. but thats just cause i am lacking in the horizontal department. This coat feels way cool. get one and check it out.. i ordered a size down. i wonder how it will be?
Great Overall Jacket
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.
