"Do not waste your money unless you like scraping snow off yourself all day. Crap!"
I've been using the Hackett jacket in Japan for the last two weeks, and yeah it looks great, but snow sticks to it like shit to a blanket and is ridiculously hard to get off! My advice is if you buy this jacket do not take it anywhere near where it looks like snowing unless you want to look like the abominable snowman, crap jacket and total waste of hard earned money!
"Review says Hardest working jacket on the mountain , should say This jacket is hard work! Total crap"

I got the true black color and it is cool. It is not too baggy and feels like it will be warm. There is enough room to layer on cold days. It is water proof and not thick. The only thing about this jacket I found a problem with is the size. It runs pretty big. I am usually a large or X-large but with this jacket I had to go down to a medium.
"Very Keen on the Keef. Stylish in a long and baggy sort of way."
Dying to try it out this winter!Cons: Feels long if u have a short torso. Would be nice if hood could zip off. Keef coloring is more green than blue. The difference is small, just be aware that your chosen color may vary slightly.Pros: Extremely stylish! Big handwarmer pockets. Pitzips, and 2 way zipper are nice. I like the fit, most jackets in my size are too short. The bagginess encourages layering. Material does feel pretty cloth-like & holds up against water. Interior lining is warmer than expected, more than a shell but less than a full on thermal.Overall, any flaws are minor. Remember to check the sizing info and consider how your particular body shape would match up. I like it!
