This is the best cold weather jacket I have ever owned for Chicago winters. I used to have to wear a fleece vest under my jacket for winter cycling. Not anymore with this jacket. It is very warm at least to single digit temperatures that I have used it in. It has a high collar with a zipper that goes all the way up. The 2 draw cords customize the fit keeping cold air from coming in the bottom. All the pockets have zippers so nothing falls out while riding. This week I used it for snowshoeing while the snow was still falling. This jacket kept me warm, dry and comfortable. A really well thought out design. The only thing I would change is to make the pockets just a little deeper but that is nitpicking. This is really a great jacket.
I love this jacket, this is a replacement for one I got years ago. It wears like iron, comfortable and very versatile. It has a lot of pockets and is a warm parka or a great windbreaker.
