@erroneous I like the jacket too and have work it every day since it arrived. Nice and warm too. The sides have a weird mesh thing that allows the jacket to breathe really well, but it’s also not very warm on that part (which I don’t mind, I think it’s a good trade off). I wish it had a hood though, it would be perfect.
@blaineg@erroneous Plus it’s advertised as a jacket and not a coat. I was out tonight in 31 degree weather and it was plenty warm for a short walk outside. Extended times might get a little too chilly.
The wife is currently watching 90s Pride and Prejudice (the one with Colin Firth) again and I cannot help but draw parallels to these jackets and Victorian fashion as they really emphasize the empire waisted cardigan look in all the wrong ways
Got the zip-up version last time. It’s a pretty great jacket. I’ve worn it hiking a couple of times already. I like the pockets. I would recommend.
The only thing “tactical” about it is that you can unzip the inside of the lower pockets so that you can reach your hand all the way through and “tactically” scratch your belly without unzipping your jacket.
