        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.

        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.

                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.

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

                        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.
