Cold Weather? No Problem!
I bought the Kalkaska Active Jacket for those bitterly cold nights while working on a concrete dock. I have to admit, I was skeptical when it came to whether or not a down jacket would hold up to a tough working environment. This one is up to the task. Consider that most down jackets are fine for skiing but work...likely not. The outer layer is tough enough that it appears that it will hold up to almost anything you can throw its way. The down insulation is light and not heavy at all, which makes it perfect for layering. Incidentally, when it comes to fit, this will work well with layering. It's roomy enough that you can wear a heavy flannel shirt under it or most anything else you desire. The pockets are deep and the snap closure will keep things in place. Now, cost...a concern for most people. Although this ranks high in comparison to other coats or jackets you have to ask yourself "what is being warm worth to me"? I work on a concrete dock for up to 12 hours at a time. This is an investment in "me". This is not a one winter use jacket. Expect it to hold up for many winters. Therefore, I see this as being worth the cost and I would recommend it highly.
