I would compare this Arborwear jacket to a tank. Everything about the jacket is very tough and I love it for that very reason. The stitching is very well done and really shows the great craftsmanship that went into the piece. The material is also really tough, believe me I have managed to get it caught on absolutely everything possible. The zipper is even impressive the thing is practically bulletproof. The thing as a whole is just built really well. Arborwear is a great manufacturer and with this jacket they have just increased my brand loyalty ten fold. They produced a warm jacket with great windblocking ability for a relatively cheap price. This is a perfect jacket for all your fall needs. Great Jacket.
