Loki META Hard Shell
Pros? Built in face shield is AWESOME. Built in…
Price Paid: $325
Pros? Built in face shield is AWESOME. Built in mitts, lots of pockets, pit zips.
Cons? Am on my second Loki Meta (women's); weak zipper stitching on the side pockets on both jackets.
Returned the first one, took over a month (!!) to get a replacement, leaving me without a winter coat (not good!). I gave up on that, and ended up going to a 2nd dealer. After failure by jacket #2, the new dealer advised me they would see about getting it fixed or replaced.
Long story short, no contact from Loki, and now I am to bring the jacket back in March (when it's not -30 Celsius) to get the zipper replaced.
Emailed Loki? NO response. Very disappointed by the company. Don't think I'll buy another jacket from them, because for $325, I expect quality and service.
Here's what other sites are saying:
