Rugged, stylish, versatile.
I don’t reckon anyone involved in the High-Fashion world, would think of this jacket as “stylish”, but for us blue collar, outdoor loving, every men, look no further.
Not to heavy, not to light, this jacket can get you by in 3 out of the four seasons (Maybe with a t-shirt on coolish summer nights). The Jacket is surprisingly warm, but not overly so. I have yet to overheat while wearing it. The pocket orientation is practical, with double layered waist pockets that are great for keeping warm, and holding your shotgun shells. Also the left breast inner pocket can fit most phones, nice plus.
The shell, has so far stood up to snow, mud, and light Briars. I suspect that it will hold up just fine, beating brush for rabbits too.
Love the jacket, but there are a few things that gave it a four star review. While I love the warmth the jacket provides, I was expecting a bit less insulation. I imagine that in warmer months you may get a bit toasty. Water resilience is okay due to the tight weave of the fibers, but if you want waterproofing I’d definitely suggest applying some Otterwax or similar compound.
Otherwise, I’m very pleased with my purchase. I got the medium and it fits great (6’2, 180 lbs). Definitely would suggest picking this one up.
