Jakson Jacket in TNF Black

Breathable. Warm. Gangsta. What else is needed for a midlayer jacket? Probably not too much, but if it is needed, the Jakson jacket can take care of it. The fleece sleeves and down core combine for ultimate backcountry love. When you’re touring, you let off quite a bit of steam via your arms whilst keeping those key organs safe inside. Genious. Then, after your done shredding pow lines, you head out on the town, pull an all nighter, still wearing your favorite jacket. Comments from babes all night on how sick it is, go home happy, do it all again.

Jakson Jacket in Zinc Grey

sleeves do have thumb holes, not the best feature. It might be better to have the sleeves a little shorter with an elastic band to keep it tight. Chest pocket are great, keep some valuables close to the heat (make your ipod battery last longer, or keep your clif bar from becoming that untouchable brick). I haven’t had any issues so far, no rips, tears or leaks and I charge.  A sick feature that should be added is a little hood. A thin, removable, silky hood would be awesome to slide under a hat or helmet, or just pull up when the wind-burst hits up on the knife edge ridge line.
In total, its a rad jacket, simple but nice features. Does the job well. Bingo!
