This is a very high quality jacket, but keeps you very hot as it is designed for Alpine conditions, i.e. is not for everyday use but for trips to mountains, or places where you are stay still outside, e.g. going to football matches. That'll explain the attached goggle wipe which is attached within. Also older people may prefer something hot too.

The colour of the jacket is predominantly black (also available in blue) with white stripes at the zip and the sides underarm. The white helps with nighttime use as it should help reflect car lights and keep you safer than an all black jacket would.

There are four pockets on the front, one chest pocket that can be closed using poppers, the others with zips which are easy to use even with cold fingers as they have a fabric extension joined to them making them easy to slide up or down. There is a sleeve zip pocket too. There is an inside pocket too which has a hole for wires so you can keep your iPod nice and dry in there whilst listening to it.

There is a detachable hood, with a very nice soft fur around it. The hood can be tightened by using the cord. The fur can also be removed easily as it is attached by poppers, which you may want to do when it rains. There is a cord around the base of the jacket so that that can be tightened too, and zips at the wrists so they can be tightened to your preference as well. Within the sleeves there is also a soft fabric fingerless thin glove to slip your hands into, or not if you prefer. Real gloves can then be slipped over these too.

The coat is thick and warm. For me that means that I can't use it for when I am walking to work because I would sweat too much, but I tend to sweat a lot anyway so for others it may be fine, and it is breathable after all. Only when it is really cold would I possibly wear it for that, but for watching football, say, it is fine, and the quality means it should last a long time.
