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

        I have literally traveled the world in this jacket over the last 5+ yrs and it has never failed me. No complaints about the fit (as others have) as I've used it as a top shell when needing to layer and it works great. My original still hasn't failed me but I'm buying a spare for when it eventually gets tired. It rolls up to the size of a small water bottle so it's great for a day pack or travel where luggage is limited. Another advantage...I'm 6'6" and it has great length and fit.

        I cannot recommend this jacket enough.

            I bought the jacket on sale for my son who had grown out of his ski jacket. Like me, he rarely gets cold on the slopes. This shell, with a layer or two underneath should work just fine.

                Fit is good for layering. No issues thusfar. Blocks the wind very well. Zippers are stiff, but feel substantial.

                Great jacket

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

                Great Jacket - not a full multi-layer jacket that I expected, but still a great, lightweight, waterproof shell.
                It runs a little lean, I'm 5'6" and 150lbs and a medium is just right/snug. If your going to wear a fleece or puff under the shell, I'd go up a size.

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

                        Received one as a gift from my wife about 4 - 5 years ago. Used it primarily as a shell for skiing and snowboarding in temps ranging from sub-zero wind chills to spring slush. Great wind / rain / cold protection. I wear Hot Chillies/ similar base layer and a good fleece as a second layer, with the EMS shell on top for skiing / boarding on average winter days. It replaced a very similar North Face jacket that cost quite a bit more, and I like the EMS jacket better. Good vents too, which help a lot when whether warms up or I am working hard in powder. Bought a replacement a few weeks ago on sale - an exceptional value (< 1/2 what I probably would have paid for North Face). It appears to have changed only slightly in terms of cosmetics. Highly recommended.

                            Great coat. This is my second Orion jacket. First one lasted many years, but finally gave up after much service.

                                My teenage son never wanted to wear a jacket in the winter, in the rain, never. But he wears this one because it's not "puffy" and it works. On very cold days he wears a fleece under it and it's fine for him. He can also stuff it into his backpack and not have to carry it around.

                                    Light hiking, work on campus. It is light enough for warm weather wear, but anticipate also great use in moderately cold weather with a fleece. Very pleased!
