    COMMENTS:

    ive had this jacket for probably 5 years now and here are my thoughts.

    lets talk about the good.
    its warmer than average, but sometimes I wish for more. I love the insolated outer pockets, man do they help keep your hands warm, and it has a nice variety of inner pockets with good placement, especially if you work out of your pockets like me and carry a lot of tools on your person. zippers are of good quality despite repeated use. gussets and storm cuffs get bonus points for me.

    now lets talk about the bad.
    the fire hose material I have mixed feelings on. having owned several pair of pants also it seems to take unkindly to areas that are folded over, so like others here, the edge of the cuffs are fraying like one would see with blue jeans, I found my pants do the same thing as I role them up on the bottom, it seems like when you fold it and subject to a lot of repeated movement the durability suffers. I do like the fire hose but I don't know if its worth the premium you pay for it in that regard. It also lacks in the waterproofing department, spend any time in the rain and you will want a rubber slicker over the top of it. Given all of that, my biggest gripe with it is despite years of wearing and washing it has never broken in, it was extremely stiff when new and is still that way today, it rides up my back and kind of bunches in the pits, especially when getting in and out of cars or climbing ladders. I was hoping it would become like a favorite pair of jeans but that never happened.

    the bottom line is lacking the option I would pick so ill put it here, would I recommend it to a friend?
    depends. as a work jacket it works well enough to get the endorsement I guess. but ive also spent a lot of time wearing it around town and it just was not that comfortable and it also is not that great in prolonged exposure to the rain, once you get wet you stay that way and its unpleasant.

    COMMENTS:

    I loved this jacket ......... I only say loved cause someone else loved it appearantly more than me and has decided to claim as their own ( I can't prove it's you but you know who you are!). I HAD the older version (with back pocket to store hats/gloves and things). Don't seem like new versions have that. Too bad Either way I told santa (aka wifey) I need a new one to stay warm all 60+hours this winter! Super useful work coat

      COMMENTS:

      I am an industrial electrician and work in a nuclear plant. I have a really long walk from my car to inside the plant. The coat keeps me warm and comfortable on those long, cold, and windy walks to the plant. Also, I work with tools in my pockets and work off of ladders while wearing this coat and I have good range of motion while wearing this coat even while doing overhead work. The water resistance is good. This is my go to cold day coat and will by another when this one wears out.

          COMMENTS:

          had one for a year now ,looks good and fits good,but the cuffs are frayed (after 6 months) which really surprised me ,thought the fire hose material would be more durable,the insulation seems to creep down and bunch up under the shoulders , forms a ridge across my back which bugs me , theres better coats out there for the money. might return it and try another one , it just needs a little better Q.C.
