I've only had this jacket a few weeks and I will update if my opinion changes because I also rely on reviews when shopping, but so far I really like it. So far it's as good if not better than the one it's replacing from a popular and much more expensive outdoor clothing company. I've worn it hunting, fishing, and around town. Resists light rain or snow and stops the wind. Doesn't replace a truly waterproof nylon or gortex parka for severe weather, but for milder days it's great. Glad I was able to find it at a store and try it on because it runs a little big. I'm 5'9" with a 42" chest and 32" waist. In between large and medium, but with rare exception I buy large. This is one of the exceptions. Medium gives me plenty of sleeve length and room in the torso to layer a thick wool sweater under it. I've washed it on cold, dried it on low, and it does fine. The outer material picks up a little dog hair but is easily shaken or patted off. The soft liner tends to pick up more, but not nearly as bad as fleece does. Was on the fence about buying it, but I'm glad I did. I'll wear it quite a bit when I don't need protection from sever weather and that will help keep the miles of my more expensive parka. Construction seems pretty good. If it holds up like I think it will, then it's a bargain. Comfortable, good looking, good performing (for soft shell). Happy with my purchase.
