"Taosty, fasionabley cool, techniqly bad ass."
First thought upon opening the box was that my blue incandescent was that the color looks much better in person than the screen picture. Some what darker. In blue the shiny cover looks great to me. Although I didn't plan on waring it in the streets, I would not have a problem doing so. The zipper on this thing seems bullet proof. The angled stitching not only seems functional but sets this apart from the run of the mill jackets. Plenty of feathers in this coat at only about 19oz just seems wrong, Its puffy but not to puffy, just right for serious cold weather while snow camping in 20 degree or less weather. Frankly its almost like having a sleeping bag for the upper body. If they made down pants like this you could leave the sleeping bag at home. I'm 5'-8" 40 " chest and 165 and the medium fits perfect,
