            This is a great alternative to the Micro Therm down jacket. Primaloft is a great insulation! When it gets wet, you still stay warm. When down insulation gets wet you lose heat. This is a great jacket for a wet type of climate. Great reinforcement with the Cordura overlays. Great jacket to wear hunting or in town.

            A good jacket…a great one if you get it on sale.

                  Comments about Men's Convector Jacket:

                  I recently walked into my local Eddie Bauer and saw this jacket on sale. I had been looking for a dedicated jacket for winter sporting clays so I thought this jacket would fit the bill.

                  The jacket does have a trim fit. I'm 5'11" tall, 165 pounds, with a 40.5 inch chest. With a heavy weight athletic fitting wool hunting sweater underneath, a size large fits me perfectly. Most folks will need to size up as this jacket does have a very trim and athletic fit. If you're purchasing this for casual use and prefer a fit with some more room for layering it might make sense to go up a size. Try it on in a store if you can.

                  For its intended use, shooting, the trim fit is purposeful. When I took the jacket to the range for sporting clays I had no difficulty wearing my shooting vest over this jacket. The trim fit and lack of excess fabric really works when paired with a shooting vest.

                  This jacket is fairly thin; it reminds me of a liner you might put into a military field jacket. I was quite warm in 35 degree weather, but I was properly dressed and did have a heavy wool sweater on. If you're willing to wear wool layers I think this will keep you warm into the 20's. It is very easy to move while wearing this jacket. I had no difficulty mounting my over-under, and I never felt that my movement was restricted.

                  The collar has a super soft micro fleece lining. If you're clean shaven and are shooting, you won't have any irritation on your neck after a day at the range. Pretty basic on the inside. An interior zip pocket and a pocket on the lower right side (might be good for shooting gloves), a couple of hand-warmer pockets on the outside. Again, intended purpose; if you're using a shooting vest you'll have plenty of pockets and you won't be using the jacket pockets at all. A casual user might complain that the jacket does not have much going on in the pocket department.

                  The only change I would like to see is on the cuffs. They material that they are finished with (the ring that finishes the cuff) may not be that durable. After a day of shooting some of the nylon fibers are starting to stick out so this does raise some durability concerns.

                  Value is where this jacket falls short. A $200 msrp seems really steep for what you're getting. Sure it is a great jacket and looks the part, but I'm not sure it is $200 great. My local Eddie Bauer had it on sale for a ridiculous price and for what I paid, it is outstanding. If I was paying $200 I would give this product 3-stars, the value-for-money issue really holds the rating back. If you get it on sale, then it is a 4 or 5 star jacket.

                  Overall I'm giving it 4 given what I paid for it was more than reasonable, it loses a star for durability concerns and maybe I'd like to see a tad bit more insulation in the body, but not on the sleeves because that might restrict arm movement.

                  Deceptively warm

                        I am 6'3" 230 lbs and wear a 17 ½ - 36/37 sleeve dress shirt. I'm able to comfortably wear a nice rag wool sweater under this and not feel confined. Even with only a light weight long sleeve shirt beneath the jacket is deceptively warm. When it arrived it was horribly wrinkled and the instructions say do not dry clean, steam, or iron. I didn't want to wash it because that would remove too much of the Storm Repel DWR finish so I washed two sueded cotton henley's and hung the jacket between the two damp shirts, this released the wrinkles.
