This jacket is great, basically. Originally, without any prior knowledge of SB products, I ordered a M cuz I'm size M in everything else (5'9", 145) and I was swimming in it. Some of my more gangster friends liked it that way, but I'm more low-key than str8 g if you know what I'm sayin. Anyway, I returned it for a small and it fits perfect now. It feels real heavy when I pick it up, but the weight isn't noticeable when it's on. The color I got is like the brown plaid one (perhaps last yr's model), which is quite baller if I do say so myself. The outside is like cloth-feeling texture, but literally the first time I wore it out it was pouring rain at the bottom of the mountain and snowing at the top, and I was completely dry either way. Totally baller+functional. The liner is awesome, too. I wish I could get underpants made out of the same material. There's not really any insulation in this jacket, but the most I've worn under it is like a short sleeve t-shirt and some long underwear and I've never really been cold in it. In fact, when I get warm in it, the pit zips work great. I used it from Thanksgiving to Spring Break, and it's great for all temps/weather. So now ur asking is this too good to be true, sir. No it is not, is the answer. That being said, I do have a couple nitpicks for ya. First, part of the cuff of this jacket is like some kind of neoprene, which, when my glove gauntlet gets soaked, gets soaked by proxy, and then my long underwear cuff gets wet and I get angry, which is good for nobody. Secondly, there's like two pieces of velcro on the flaps in addition to the zipper to the two side pockets and I can undo the zipper just fine, but the velcro is sometimes a little obnoxious to open, too, like w/ gloves or whatever. But really, the cuffs don't get wet that often and I probly need new gloves anyway there like 10 years old, and what do I ever put in those pockets to begin with? There's like 800 pockets located elsewhere. So who cares. It's completely quality all-around and I'm totally sold on SB stuff now. To summarize for ya book report style, I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good time/jacket.
