    Pros

    • Comfy
    • Decent fit

    Cons

    • Mesh Like Seams
    • Not Breathable Panels
    • No venting

    Best Uses

      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Fader Jacket:

      Lack of pit zips or other underarm venting leads you to overheat with any decent amount of exertion. Snug fit feels good, but means when you overheat, opening the front zipper doesn't dry the sweat off your back. The fabric panels bead water for now(time will tell if it holds up) but the seams may as well be mesh. Standing in any wind you can feel it pour through, defeating the nice fabric panel wind-blocking.

      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Fader Jacket:

      I have been looking for a hooded soft shell for a couple years now and the EMS fader Jacket finally fulfilled my need!! I am 5'10" 155-160 lbs and chest size 39" and the medium fits great. I tried both a small and medium to be sure I found the best fit and found the medium to be the right one. It's perfect in the 40 degree range, very warm, the fleece lining is very comfortable and keeps you warm but still breaths well. If you have the chance definitely check this jacket out, you won't be sorry!!

        It's expensive yes, but worth the investment in the long run. It is very warm and useful in all seasons, while being very lightweight.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Fader Jacket:

          The inside fleece loft is really soft, but it's not super thick so this jacket is best for active use. I wish the sleeve cuffs were adjustable and that the hood had a cinch in the back - instead it only tightens at the front. I have the navy blue jacket, but the color is much darker (closer to black then blue) than the photo online shows

            Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Fader Jacket:

            This jacket is great for its performance and its looks. The fit is more akin to a tailored fit than I'm used to with big, bulky winter jackets. That's exactly it: this isn't a bulky jacket. It's fuzzy and warm on the inside and repels water well on the outside. It is great if you're moving around a little, because it's breathable.

            A note on sizing though: according to EMS's site, I'm a medium...that's not the case with this jacket...a Large is a perfect fit. Keep that in mind when ordering...you may want to go a size up.

            Purchased for 16 yr old son , 5'8 145lbs, size Medium perfect fit, he loves it. Light enough to wear everywhere, doesn't overheat, usually wears over t shirt in 40 temps, like a sweatshirt jacket with extra warmth, comfort and water resistance, sleeves run long but he likes the fact.

              Everything is GREAt about this jacket. I bought it for my grandson who is 12 and he loves it. Even wears it inside. He loves the fact that you can run water over it and nothing seeps through. Very warm and comfy. I highly recommend it!

              Just biked 6 miles into work on a windy, 34 degree day. Wore this jacket with a sweater underneath and was probably a little too warm.

              Light jacket, incredibly warm and comfortable. Well worth every penny.

              Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Fader Jacket:

              Great Jacket. The soft shell surprisingly causes water to bead fairly easily. The cuffs near the wrist can be tight, but that is an intentional design to allow a glove to fit over. I have been wearing this jacket for the last 2 months through the winter and now into the New England "spring". The jacket performs great for those days where it is kinda raining/kinda snowing.
