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

        Nothing keeps you warm like down! This is a very nice coat that has kept me warm and dry through one PA winter so far. It even kept me warm walking my dogs in -10F temperatures in Vermont. The collar, hood, sleeves, and waist can be cinched up to keep you warm. The collar is high and it's interior is soft so you can tuck your chin in without discomfort. Wind is no problem and the outer material is very water/snow resistant. The only reason I deducted a star is because every time I wear it I notice a few more little feathers have come out of the interior liner. Not a deal-breaker, but it would have been nice if EMS used a tighter weave for the interior liner. This coat is bulky, so I wouldn't use it for camping/backpacking, but that's not why I bought it so I'm not faulting it there. Bottom line is that it's a very good winter coat that I expect will last me many years.

        very durable down coat

        By Dunes

        from Cape Cod, MA

        Pros

        • Comfortable fit
        • Down
        • Durable shell
        • Light

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Cold and wet conditions

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

          I wanted a winter coat that was durable and able to withstand wet and cold. Where i live near the ocean the winters are wet as well as cold. I also liked the tough outer shell and the hood. In this coat, i got the warmth of down, with the waterproof heavy-duty shell of a work coat, but still light, flexible, and comfortable to wear. The black color is very cool, also.

                It's incredibly warm. Another review says its not very packable, which is true, but I'm just using it to walk to class and back. It will definitely last a while, and absolutely keeps me warm.

                      This jacket was for my nephew. He loved the jacket, but is stuck now with a broken zipper during the coldest part of the year, when he needs it the most.
                      Very disappointing considering the cost of the jacket.

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

                      This is so good jacket.

                      Nice warm and windproof.

                      But I disappoint this product.

                      First Its fabric is so rigid and so tight around neck area.

                      Especially, chin area push back my chin.

                      And I can't help opening zipper about two inch for free my neck movement.

                      Second, Handpocket's side entrance is located so near my side. It is unnatural.

                      Thus It have to be moved forward or you will make a pocket's depth deep.

                        This is replacing an EMS coat I purchased 15 years ago that I loved for very cold weather. I was afraid "improvements" over the years would have spoiled the coat, but this coat is actually better than my old one! Excellent quality, more features for warmth (drawstrings, etc), and a more durable shell. This is an EXCELLENT coat for cold weather that I would recommend to anyone!! Customer service and shipping times were top-notch as well - great job!!

                          Great coat for any outdoor activity in heavy winter conditions. Heavy duty two way zip adds versatility for getting in and out of cars, etc. Rugged outer shell and toasty down interior... Sweet! Hand warmer pockets not well placed, too low and poorly angled, they're not very usable as is but could be improved in next year's model.

                                I have owned this jacket for more than a month now and used it in 10-15 degrees and up. The jacket is very very warm! Upto around 25F you will sweat in it if you walk around town or go for hikes etc. The hood doesn't come off and is annoying at times when you don't need one. I walked around when it was raining and was totally dry! Outer pockets are big and useful, only one pocket inside - so far its been ok.
