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

          I really like the jacket. It looks great. Slim fitting (though I had to get a small for a good fit when I usually get a medium everywhere else). The sleeves are strangely long. I have long arms (even for my height, 5' 11'') and the sleeves on the small still cover my palms. Maybe this is a feature, but it annoys me a little. Also the wrist velco isn't the strongest. looks like it's molded into some kind of plastic rather than sewn in.

          I use it as a liner under a peacoat when it's colder (10 F to 30 F) and can probably use it by itself in the 40s to 50s.

                This was a good all around purchase. I purchased this jacket last fall on sale but,I didn't really put use to it until this past weekend. I went on a hike to Mt Avalon and Mt Field in the NH White Mountains with friends and we found ourselves in a not rainy but damp, and misty spring day. This jacket sheads light moisture very well and is very comfortable. The only issue I had was the jacket could use under arm vents to help reduce moisture build up in the jacket.

                        Very nice not-so-technical jacket. You can wear it to the office and go for a hike as well.

                        The torso is pretty long (I like that) and it's not as close fitting as I'd like but that leaves some room for even a thin down jacket to wear under.

                          I bought this as a replacement for my old and trusted Windbloc that was discontinued. It works great. Very slim look, but keeps you very warm. I wear it as my everyday jacket as well as for hiking, and it keeps me warm enough most days of the year (you probably want another layer below 15 degrees).
                          I love the chest pocket, makes it easy to access my phone (and easy to have a headset stick out)

                            I wear this jacket on a regular basis in sub-50 degree weather. It cuts through the wind and keeps me rather toasty. I haven't needed to wear any other jacket yet and it's even gotten below 40 degrees. The jacket looks great too and can be worn if heading out for a night on the town.
