Greatest jacket I've ever owned. I got this jacket when I was in 8th grade (I'm 22 now) and have worn it everywhere. I probably wear it at least 4 days a week from September to May.
It pretty much still looks like the day I bought it. This is a quality, made in America product right here. It is a perfect insulating layer for ski touring, hiking, or whatever. I've had multiple friends "borrow" it and not give it back cause they liked it so much.
Fabric: 200 weight fleece
Price Paid: $140
I've used this jacket for a full year in the Eastern Aleutian Islands, and have found it to be excellent for most cold weather conditions, from light rain to fairly heavy snow or sleet, provided it's not too windy. This does not have the "windstopper" technology and a brisk wind will definitely go through it. It layers well with long underwear and a lightweight shell to provide protection in harsher conditions. The pit zips are a huge plus, as it's easy to get overheated with the 200 weight fleece.
Fabric: 200 weight fleece
Price Paid: $90 (sale)
I got this jacket on sale of the web for $90 and it retails for $140. I've only gotten to use it on one camping trip so far and wear it around town. It is pretty warm. It's been in the 30s in the morinings lately and I wear this jacket and a long sleeve shirt and i stay pretty warm. It has pit zips, elbow and shoulder patches, an inside pocket, 2 handwarmer pocket, and pocket near your left shoulder. All in all a nice jacket.
