My jacket came in the Pine color but they are also available in Granite, Ranch, and Yellowstone. This jacket is extremely comfortable to wear for just about any cool weather task. The inside liner of the jacket reminded me of a suit jacket. The outer liner is made for work. I carried wood, busted tile and trekked through the woods with ease while wearing this jacket. I stuffed the pockets full of gloves, flash lights, keys, phones, beanies, etc. trying to bust the pocket zippers and couldn't. I also put the Stagecoach through the washing machine and into the dryer. It came out looking as new as when I pulled it out of the box.
|Pretty sure I don't have a future as a jacket model|
|You can store your keys in the "hand warmer" pocket|
|The inside pocket is big enough to hold a GPS|

Here are my pro/cons of the Stagecoach Jacket:
- Very comfortable
- Not bulky
- Has "hand warmer pockets" that zip up, I kept my truck keys zipped up in mine to keep from losing them
- The top pockets held my cell phone perfectly
- Easy button snaps
- Zippers are easy to use even with gloves on
- Comes in 4 colors, giving you options
- Even though mine was a XXL in size, the jackets could be made with a little more breathing room
- In my opinion, this jacket was made for cool weather, not extreme cold (not sure this is really a con but more of a weather related issue)
- would have liked for it to have an inside pocket on both sides instead of just one
To take the review one step further, I put the jacket on and actually poured a half gallon of water on the sleeve while wearing it. My initial thoughts were that the water would run right through the jacket and soak my arm. I was wrong! Most of the water was shed off of the jacket and my arm stayed dry. When you placed your hand in the jacket you could tell where the water was poured but only because it had turned the jacket cold. No water at all soaked through the sleeve!
|Who in their right mind would do this?|
|Like water off a duck's back|
|My arm is dry!|
My overall opinion of the jacket is great. It's built to last in the outdoors. While I did take this jacket hunting, it's not a hunting jacket. I don't plan on taking it hunting anymore, but I wanted to see how it stood up being outdoors for a long period of time. I would definitely recommend this product for anyone in the market for a jacket to work in or just to wear in general. The jacket retails for $154.95 on Mountain Khakis' website. Like most things in the outdoor industry, you get what you pay for. While I do believe this is a little pricey for a jacket, I don't see this thing falling apart in a year or two of hard use.
