This jacket is a great lightweight fleece that has a nylon outer shell that is waterproof and breathable. It is the perfect jacket to put under a heavy riding jacket on cold mornings, or just for walking around once you get to where you're going. This jacket has a light nylon liner at the sleeves so if you're wearing a cotton or flannel shirt, the sleeve won't grab the shirt while you're trying to put the jacket on. Very nice touch.
The handwarmer pockets don't have zippers but I think this would have detracted from the nice clean lines of the jacket. There's a cargo pocket with velcro closure on the right inside of the jacket and a cell phone pocket on the inside left. So there's a decent amount of storage, but the zippers on the handwarmer pockets would make you feel more secure that you won't lose anything important.
I checked poor airflow because this is not supposed to be a riding jacket. It's supposed to be a windbreaker and it performs this task perfectly.
Firstgear's quality is top notch. I have a Firstgear Jaunt (older model) and this jacket. Firstgear's quality control is second to none. I'm very impressed. The stitching is perfect on both jackets. There are no hanging threads. The zippers are all YKK and work flawlessly. I am sold on the quality of Firstgear.
Revzilla shipped fast. Have never had to deal with customer service because they got my order right and their description let me know what I was ordering so there were no surprises. Great job guys!
This is a stylish jacket that fits true to size. It looks great. It offers warmth and is water proof. I recommend this jacket and definitely recommend any Firstgear apparel.
