I've been wearing the same Eddie Bauer windcutter jacket for years now and decided it was time for something new. We had a colder than normal end of the winter months and a nice warm jacket seemed to be a good choice. It's incredibly warm and the fit is just about perfect.I've been wearing it fairly regularly and it keeps out the wind and rain very well. The Pimento color was a little bright for my tastes, but it's nice when walking in areas with traffic in low light or when out hiking and you get separated from the group.The fabric seems to be very sturdy, I've scraped against a few sharp and rough objects that I would have expected to snag or tear it and it hasn't ended up with a mark yet. I'm pretty happy with it in that regard.Price wise, it's an ok value. I really only went with this one because I had some coupons and it was on sale. The normal retail price is way too high.
