I Won'tdo Wantdo!
Reviewed in the United States on April 14, 2017
The jacket looks great, I got the blue and the wife got the red. These jackets have a nice lining and kept us very warm on our ski trip in Park City, Utah. However, the stitching became undone under the right armpit of my jacket on our third day of a seven-day trip. The other big problem is that this jacket is not waterproof despite the labeling and the descriptions on the Amazon website. Several times during the trip while riding the ski-lift, I became uncomfortably aware that melting snow was somehow causing my chest to get wet. I could actually feel the cold liquid dripping at mid-chest level. This seemed to be occurring either through the zipper or the outer shell or from both despite having the jacket properly zipped, velcroed and all buttons snapped shut. Needless to say, at 10 am in the morning and planning to ski until 4 pm, this was not good. The bottom line is I really wanted to keep this jacket, great price, looked good and kept me extremely warm with thermals underneath. But alas, the unraveling of the stitching gave me pause. I thought about taking it to a seamstress for repair, but after reading some of the negative reviews I realized this has been a common problem for several years. So I am returning the jacket. I just made the cut for returns by a day, considering I've been back from my trip for a couple of weeks. The wife's jacket held up fine although she experienced dampness and wetness in the jacket from wherever she landed from falls. This company (Wantdo) needs to drastically improve their quality control, implement realistic sizing and make the product truly waterproof. Amazon should use its leverage to ensure that they address these issues asap or drop them as vendors, several years of these same issues are unacceptable. Although the price point was excellent, I "Won'tdo" Wantdo until they get their act together.
