Almost perfect... February 15, 2011
Reviewer: Tractordude from California
I like just about everything about this jacket, but it has one glaring problem: the front (main) zipper pull came off the zipper almost immediately! The jacket is exactly what it is claimed to be: water and wind proof, warm, comfortable, pockets everywhere (so many I forget where I put things!) and some are just HUGE. What almost no review or product descriptions I have found tell you is that this garment has side-entry front pockets as well as flap-covered top entry pockets for ease of putting hands in pockets to warm them.It is almost too warm if doing any real physical labor or maneuvering, but if you need warmth, it is excellent. The hood had a cool detail that allows the large, full coverage hood to be adjusted via velcro strap so that it rides a bit back on the head and allows for full visibility while in place; something I have never seen before and which is a real useful addition to the jacket. It keeps the hood off the face when being worn out, and when not being worn it rolls into the collar to create a thick, warm protective collar.The trouble, as I mentioned, is that the zipper should not come apart like that on a garment of this quality and price! I was able to jury-rig a fix by burning a small hole in the zipper flap and attaching a cable tie to the lower pull to keep it held up so it doesn't readily come off the zipper, but it will come off if pulled a bit and if the top pull falls off the zipper is in effect useless. Not good design!I would recommend.
