Rated 2 out of 5 by ManSizedMuppet from Could be better in many respects While the coat is relatively warm in temperatures above 40 degrees, I think it's a more than a stretch to rate this for -30 without some serious layering involved. Other issues... - The waterproof shell pockets are not lined, which makes warming hands almost impossible in windy conditions - The front zipper is difficult to Zip all the way up without a few tries - When the zipped all the way up, the bill of the hood hits the back of your head - The front of the coat tends to bulge outward making skinny guys look like they're in their second trimester All in all, it's okay, but I'm considering exchanging it for a different model altogether.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shopperguy314 from Wonderful jacket for Ohio I just got this jacket in time for a cold spell in the lower 20's. Headed out for a walk with Scout (my dog) with temperature around 25 with strong wind. This jacket was incredible. Didn't feel the wind at all. Not even the slightest chill. With wind gusting up to 30mph, the wind chill was effectively in single digits. I particularly like the adjustment at the wrist, waist, and hood. I'm 6'2", 165 and the large fits well but better when taking in these adjustments. Couldn't be more pleased. And the fact that it is waterproof adds capability for just about anything. Love the blue color too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EdSage from Selectable liners, please? I purchased this jacket in black with shadow (silver-grey) liner, but it was actually my second choice in color. The balsam green was my first choice, but the "amber green" color of wearable liner looked very unpleasant. It would make this product outstanding if you were able to select the colors of the shell and wearable liner a la carte or purchase them separately, like with your pro-shell jacket. It fits well and looks good in all three configurations and the outer shell keeps the rain off, but would still suggest wearing a sweater/overshirt underneath it and/or base layer for anything under 40 degrees, unless you're being very active, in it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SteveGuitarist from In 2005 this jacket was much better. I'll state facts and not voice an opinion since that seems to be the accepted method of review: To note I purchased this jacket as a replacement for one that I purchased around 2005. 1. The hood does not fold into the collar as with my earlier version of this jacket. 2. The lining of the shell in rubbery and sticky making it difficult to remove and put on the jacket without the removable lining. (My wife's jacket, purchased 2 years ago, was returned because the same lining started to break apart.) 3. The jacket does not provide the warmth that the earlier version of this jacket did. 4. The earlier version of this jacket was far, far better than this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SteveGuitarist from No more hide-away hood! I finally decided to replace my old Weather Challenger and purchased this one on sale in February. This is a decidedly entirely different jacket from the other version I purchased several years ago. This is unfortunate in some respects and fortunate in others. The outer shell's lining has a very rubbery feel to it. Oddly, this makes it difficult to get one and off. Side note: My wife's jacket is flaking the lining after 1 season of wearing. There's no way to remove or tuck in the hood. It appears to be lighter in weight. The adjustment pulls are better. The cuff adjusters are better. The overall look is nicer. I can not judge the cold weather comfort or the warmth with the lining installed yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike252 from Warm and DRY This Jacket is the BOMB! If your concern is to stay warm AND dry then I highly recommend this jacket. The jacket is waterproof and cuts the wind so that you do not feel the elements. The liner is so warm you can wear just a shirt! This is a great outerwear product if you are watching your little ones during those fall rain games.... You won't even need an umbrella....works well on cape cod.... The zipper is a little stiff but this can be cured with a little spray silicone lubricant. I would recommend applying the lubricant to a QTip. Then you use the QTip to slide it along the zipper. Works like a charm!

Rated 2 out of 5 by ZGLFJ from Underdelivers in wet conditions I too may have a previous version version of this jacket. I too had the problem with the delamination of the cuff Velcro like straps. That was easily fixed with glue. This jacket with its inner liner is more than warm enough, even during single digit temperatures here in Maryland. My problem is this jacket is not in any way waterproof. I go out in even a medium rainstorm or wet snowstorm, and my arms and shirt sleeves are soaked in 5 - 10 minutes. The goal of my purchase was to replace my venerable, 25 year old Maine State Warden parka. That parka is fine but the fabric in its snap on hood gave out. This jacket is not an adequate replacement in wet winter conditions.

Rated 2 out of 5 by WisSnowOwl from OK Jacket I was looking forward to this jacket for a long time and finally received it as a christmas present in December 2013. The jacket fits nice and like the two-tone colors (mine was light green) that were available at the time but didn't care too much for the liner material. The jacket blocks wind well and think it was waterproof at first but over the first year it began to absorbed water more. The waterproof feature didn't last long. I found it too cold for the northern WI/U.P. and more of a fall/spring jacket if only it were waterproof. Hopefully the newer versions (according to pics) have been updated to address those issues.
