A Lot of Jacket for the Price, Sort of
on February 17, 2014
I am *mostly* pleased with this jacket but they cheaped-out on the pockets, and I like lots of proper pockets!
-Ordered size Large and it fit as expected.
-Jacket is comfortable and very warm. This is now my go-to jacket for when the temp dips into the teens and lower.
-Front snappable pockets can hold two cell phones (although I can't snap the flap back over them, and your experience will vary depending on phone size).
-This is kind of a big con -- the two front vertical zippered pockets are basically faux-pockets. They open up to a very shallow slot that could maybe accommodate a pen or two, but that's it. I wish I had known that beforehand, as I expected them to be normal-sized pockets and would have been my first choice to store my cell phone. In the end it wasn't a deal breaker and I decided to keep the jacket, but still wish that part of it was actually useful.
-There is only one inside pocket and it's fairly small. It's big enough to hold a wallet or large phone, but not large enough to store a couple of winter gloves.
Despite some pocket deficiencies, this is still a pretty decent winter jacket for only $50.
