      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.

      from Brooklyn, NY

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

      Cons

      • Color Isn't Terrific
      • No Inner Pockets

      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.

      Great all around jacket

      By Big Al

      Pros

      • Good Fit
      • Well Made
      • Well thought out design

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Every day

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

        I purchased a jacket very similar to this made by EMS over five years ago. For the amount of time I have worn it it has held up extremely well. This jacket is almost the same but in my opinion better. I am six foot six and the XXL jacket is a great fit. The jacket definitely provides warmth and looks good enough to be worn at a formal meeting. I like the size and placement of the zip pockets. The side pockets are pretty large but even the breast pocket will easily hold a large cell phone. I like the security of the zipper.
        Overall this is a good versatile every day jacket.

          Comfotable Coat

          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.
