We built this jacket to be tough, at this price point we expect this piece to last years, not months. And warm, even on the coldest days. This is our first true technical jacket using our proprietary NYCO fabric blend. Complimented by our proprietary wind & waterproof fleece lining. The attention on the core details, make this the best foul weather jacket in the workwear category. And a piece you can wear on the job and off, because even though it's workwear, style matters.
Overall a distinctly 1620 Workwear Jacket. This is basically their Work Vest with arms, as I expected. Keep in mind the arms-sleeves are lined with this inner insulating fabric too, so it will not necessarily slide your cotton or otherwise arms for layering easily as you might expect with other satin or poly inner arms on other jackets. But once on the fit is terrific. Fully zipped up the top ~neck is very comfortable with a layered hood fully up as well with no bunch crunch, a refreshing feature as advertised. It is lightweight but still has bulk do to said inner lining. Pockets are likewise large and functional. Rest at a good length.
Sizing can be tricky. Either I am a bit off or the sizing chart is off. I took a guess at Size Large. I find other than their work hoodies, the sizing chart is one size too low, a Large is a big as an Extra Large Chart. In any case, I am 6'2" naked 172 lbs with say a 40" chest. With layers and this Size Large jacket chest of an empirical 24" - 24.5" tampered, it fits very well for a size Medium American Giant Pullover Hoodie or a size Large 1620 Pullover Hoodie.
Please make a Uniform Blue and or Dermitasse Brown color(s) as well.
