Buy this one!I bought this jacket last year for my brother. I wanted to get him something that didn't look like the regular 'parka jacket'. It was supposed to be a for winter but I thought to myself, this thin thing won't last the winter, so I bought it as a fall jacket. Has the slim fitted look that shows off and cover all that needs to be. My rother isn't fat, but he's tall with a little tummy and this jacket evens him out completely. I was amazed with how good he looked in it, so I had to buy it and tell myself it's a black fall jacket, everyone needs that, because I couldn't understand why so high in price for he soft shell jacket. My brother alternated with this jacket and his other parkas during the winter so when I had a chance, I wore it because I like how it slimmed me out as well. This jacket is worth the 200! It is so warm that you don't feel the cold. It really taps the heat in. I never wear this jacket with hats and mitts or a scarf. It's just too hot! So this year I bought one for myself because I have not found one that compares since. P.s. You will know the quality of the jacket when you shop with your jacket on in the mall. If you unzip the jacket and are still sweating, buy it.

Excellent jacket - now even betterPurchased this to replace a similar style of jacket from Roots 5 years ago. The original was a great jacket and they have improved it with this iteration. It isn't clearly listed in the description (at time of my purchase) that the jacket has a warm fleece lining like the predecessor which with the outer shell makes for excellent wind resistance. It also wears slightly larger and longer than before so fits better when wearing a bulky under-layer/sweatshirt. The hood is also a decent size, larger than before (also fleece lined) that can be pulled forward to cover most of the forehead. This version also now has fitted ribbing in the cuffs so it keeps from heat escaping via the arms/wrists and the inside of the pockets are also fleece lined, in case you find yourself without gloves on a cold day. Highly recommended!
