Previous Design was Better
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
I purchased the 2019/2020 design. I liked it so much I waited for a sale and pulled the trigger on another one from the 2020/2021 design. Now that I’ve used it for a while, I still prefer the older design.
The 2021 version has a slightly different hood design. The brim is now larger and the neck portion does not go as high as the older design. They took away all of the draw cords from every pocket except the main zipper which was probably a move to save money. The bottom of the jacket is larger from the previous version and now I wish I had a drawstring around my waste to tighten and get the jacket to be closer to my hips.
The only semi-positive thing I can say about this new version is the overall material seems to be a tad thicker. Can’t tell if that’s good or bad yet.
Got this one on sale and paid $70... I still think that’s too expensive for this jacket.
