      Worse in 2014

      Vertical/Confluence jacket:

      The jacket changed for worse in 2014: the new variant is baggier than the 2013 model. The sleeves are loose. As if the target audience for the jacket gained some weight.

      Still, overall sharp looking jacket and the materials are great. Just not for me.

      Great jacket, but missing features

      By Steve in NYC

      from Brooklyn, NY

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

      • Great Fit
      • Soft lining
      • Very water repellent
      • Warm

      Cons

      • Color Isn't Terrific
      • No Inner Pockets
      • no pit zips

      Best Uses

      • Around town
      • Winter Exercise

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

      I had a similar EMS jacket for about 7 years that I loved. It held up well, but when the zipper broke and the fabric started fraying I thought I'd replace it. The new model is better in a couple of ways: the outer fabric is more water-repellent, so it's superior in the rain. It's also cozier. The lining is really plush, and the handwarmer pockets are super comfy. But while the jacket is very wind resistant, my old EMS jacket had Gore WindPro, making it totally wind proof. And it had pit zips, which are great for temperature regulation during exercise. The old model was also more visually interesting, with grey & black sections. This one is monochrome blue, and I like but don't love the shade. It's a bit dull. And the very useful large pockets inside the old model are missing. I wish EMS had made the improvements to the jacket without also stripping away great features. But it's still a winner, just not as great as it might be.

        Comfotable Coat

        By Tom - Construction Supervisor

        from New York

        Pros

        • Great Outer Layer In Fall
        • Large Zippered Pockets
        • Warm Comfortable Coat

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Good Mid-layer In Winter
          • Outer Layer Spring Fall

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

          The large zippered pockets are great for holding equipment or gloves and hat. The pockets are lined internally with a soft fleece, the upper chest pocket is perfect for keeping glasses or a phone in easy access and not worrying about them getting scratched. The outer shell is easy to wipe off with a damp cloth.

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

            My husband who is most critical of everything I buy him loves this jacket. It is his go to jacket when it's not cold enough for the big coat. It's very comfortable, sturdy, and warm. The rain beaded right off, don't know if it will when the jacket gets older but it's not too expensive from EMS's sale so it's a very good value.

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

                    This was a great purchase. I have had the jacket for about a month now and it quickly has become one of my favorites. On it's own or as a layer piece this jacket fits the bill. It is water resistent allowing it to double as light rain jacket as well. The fleece lining along with the stretchy breathable outer fabric makes this an ideal choice for action oriented individuals. I am very happy with this purchase and I do recommend it.

                      Perfect shell for skinny athletically built dudes. Adequate length (quite long but not restrictive), all pockets you need and none you do not. No annoying Velcro on the cuffs.

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

                        Love the nylon fabric - durable and, with the fleece inner layer, still a reasonable weight. Just an all round great jacket for cold (but not freezing) days of moisture. And on freezing days, with a down jacket as a mid layer, it can be a great outer shell. This is great as it can be used as a real outershell in wet conditions.

                            This is a lightly insulated soft shell jacket. Good for active exercise in cold weather like shoveling snow, X-country skiing, shoeshoeing and more sedentary activities in warmer weather. It has nice features like zippers and pockets in the right places, internal wrist cuff. Be forewarned that it fits snug. I'm 5'11" and 145lbs and the medium fits me well but not with a lot of excess room. A thin and medium weight underlayer work well but a bulky fleece would not. Very satisfied with the product to date but do not yet have enough experience with it to comment on durability or long-term issues.
