First off, I must say that this jacket is extremely well made of quality materials. The nylon outer shell is very supple yet thick and I will bet can stand up to much wear. This jacket is also shockingly warm for it's weight and the faux fur collar is soft and adds immeasurably to the warmth factor. I also like that it is a replica of one of the first models of this jacket issued during WW2, not a more "modern" take on it. My only caveats are that it is meant to be worn over a thin flight coveralls and so, if you get your regular size, as I did, you will have a hard time layering sweaters and such under it. Order a size up and you will be fine though- I did. Lastly, I wish the days of high waisted pants were back, because this jacket is cut for that look. It will not warm your haunches on a cold day, as it has a shorter body. All in all it is awesome and a great purchase for those who want to stay warm without the bulk of other similarly warm jackets.
