          Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Black Ice Down Jacket:

          After years of pea coats and being cold walking around in the winter I decided to spring for something much warmer. Originally, I was in the market for a Canada Goose jacket. To me this black ice jacket is a hair less stylish, but not by much. When you consider that the Canada Goose jacket (chilliwack Bomber) is $380 more than the EMS black ice it becomes a no brainer. It's plenty fashionable, especially considering it's reserved for the coldest of days. The outer material seems very durable, and kept me dry in medium rain. The big front pockets are great and allow me to store light gloves, keys, lighter, sunglasses without really noticing them. On their sides are two hand warming pockets with fleece on one side. My only gripe is that I wished the hand warmer had fleece on both sides of your hand (back/front) it would make a big difference when it's under 10 degrees F. I went back and forth between this and the 3 in 1 deep freeze. Both are great jackets, but the chest was tight on the size S in the 3in1, while the M was too large. This jacket in S leaves plenty of room for layering. The EMS online staff answered the same questions for me over and over as I tried to figure out which jacket was warmer. Hats off to them for patience as I am very indecisive and research everything in detail. I am a tough critic, and this jacket hasn't disappointed me. I got it to be warm, and it does that job well even when I'm in a t-shirt on a 35 degree day. I will add that I get very cold easily. I got black so it wouldn't really go out of style, and that's good because it looks durable enough to last several years of abuse.

              I have been wearing 3in1 Parkas by other manufacturers for the past several years. The thing about those is that they really aren't insulated all that well. You have a light-to-medium weight insulated jacket covered by an uninsulated wind shell. While they are warm enough for average cold, I find that they really don't cut it in the "single digit" cold that we've been having lately. This Black Ice parka is exactly what I wanted. Super warm (down insulated) with great styling, waterproof, and very durable. I also like that the hood is detachable. I am 5' 11" and 160 pounds and I sometimes wear a medium, sometimes a large depending on the item. I ordered this coat in a medium to start, but I felt a little restricted with a heavy sweater under it. I ordered a Large and I like that fit MUCH better. I will be returning the medium for a refund.

                I would prefer a jacket which did not shed down. Too much effort picking off feathers. Wonder if the new materials provide as much warmth.

                    Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Black Ice Down Jacket:

                    I bought this for my son for his semester in the Northwoods that is coming right up. I needed a down coat with a hood and I wanted something that came down over the top of his legs. He needed a neutral color because he is a birder/wildlife watcher and any bright colors disturb the birds and other wildlife. I feared I had waited too long in the season to get what I felt he needed and the color he wanted. This coat fits the bill.

                    In addition, we recently passed through the polar vortex here in Michigan and I'm pleased to say that this coat is very warm. My son couldn't be happier with his new coat!

                            The Black Ice Down jacket is both useful in the casual sense of winter but also it functions for mild activity. The exterior is tough enough not to worry about snagging it against a branch, and the goose down is packed throughout for even heat distribution. I was looking for a heavier winter beast for those times, where you just need a traditional goose down jacket that is a bit lower on the torso, functional pockets, great hood protection, breathable, waterproof, that is very reasonably priced. I have plenty of down gear that I use for more physical activity that is lighter but less durable.
