I have been looking for the ideal jacket for a long time and have found it in the Gotham. I wanted a jacket that will last for the next five years and is super warm so I don't have to wear layers underneath. After doing my research and having read all the reviews on this site, I finally purchased the Gotham jacket in black XS. It is a great jacket. I originally thought I would return it. I was waiting for the zipper to go off track and the down feathers to come out. So far, the zipper didn't go off track, some down feathers come out, but not a lot, so I think it's okay. It keeps me very warm! The review about the hook-and-loop cuff closure messing up the sleeve is true, but it doesn't bother me. If you are a short XS, you might want to consider purchasing the kids L. The XS fits me, but at the back, you can tell that there is a lot of extra cloth because it is for taller people. Also, the fabric of this jacket is more like cloth rather than like the Nuptse. Overall, it is a great buy and I like the jacket more the more I wear it. I don't know yet if it will last five years, but I think it is a long term buy. Great jacket and super warm!
