The jacket is of very good quality and comes in a good range of colors at varying prices averaging around $40. The material is fairly thin and perhaps not well suited to very cold weather, however it does keep you surprisingly warm, making it suitable for all seasons. It is also quite stretch for added comfort.

As is often the case with larger sizes of clothing, this jacket runs on the small size and, if a comfortable fit is of importance, you might want to look at the next size up from your usual choice. It is also not all that long – for most people it should be just fine, but if you are looking for something to cover you up around or past the hips then this might not be the ideal choice. The arms are long enough – indeed they are perhaps a little overly long, so not so well suited to those with short arms.

Above all this is a good quality jacket which looks and feels great and works in all seasons. Our only criticisms are it runs a little small and short, and it isn’t best suited to very cold or wet weather.
