I won't lie, I purchased this jacket from Ibex located right here in Vermont where they are located. I was hoping Moosejaw would have the color I was looking for but had no luck. This is a great jacket and while its true a strong wind will cut through it a little, its warmth can't be ignored. Best of all, MADE IN USA of New Zealand wool!
This is a great jacket. Warm and looks good...nice and simple styling that looks great with anything, jeans, khakis, etc. I have worn it on relatively easy hikes and it's been great. It's really warm but doesn't stop a serious wind. To make this jacket perfect I would like a slightly more rigid collar because this one can get out of shape. (as a result I lay it down unless it's zipped up to the top). I also have sewn in my own barrel clasp with elastic band around the waist to pull in tight when there is wind so it doesn't have a draft.
