The first impression about this jacket is a very positive one. I would say much better than expected. Compared to the Avenger A-2 Jacket, this one seems to be superior in both craftsmanship and the grade of leather, which is the same or similar to leather of the Montreaux Moroccan Blazer. Also, for it's feel I like this jacket more than the Jack Frost coat. I was worried about the type of shearling lining, described as "plush" (and not being Spanish Merino). Yet it both looks and feels very nice. The pockets and sleeves have no shearling in them. (That fact was known). It is 26 inch long, that means certain limitation while wearing it at low temperatures (perhaps, below 25-20F, the "lower part" of the body may begin feeling uncomfortable, after a prolonged time, anyway, but also it offers an advantage of mobility and convenience when sitting in a car. I would have to wait until the winter to make my overall conclusion.
