Love the pull over and that it is reversible. It has a great fit that allows for layering on colder days.Ricky Lowe | January 3, 2017
I'd be pretty disappointed in this jacket if I'd paid anywhere close to full price for it. It reminds me of a Land's End squall jacket from about 1985. Boxy cut, a little too short, and can't lift the arms. But windproof and polartec inside, also just like that old land's end. It's fine for standing around in, but not for doing anything active. If you're looking for a good polartec alpha jacket, go with a company that makes performance apparel, not "lifestyle". The alpha is overkill for standing around drinking a beer, but that seems to be the best use for this jacket.GH | April 27, 2017
