I purchased this jacket for my husband who is a technician for AT&T in Chicago. With the winter we have been having, he needed something warm, but light, so that he wasn't weighted down whilst climbing poles, etc...this coat does just that. He was skeptical at first due to how thin the coat is. However after his first below zero day, he changed his mind. The coat is warm, lightweight, and stylish. All of the other guys at his hub have been asking him where they can get one!
