As warm as it is authentic.
Autumn in New England isn't complete without your quintessential tour of the local history museum, visit to an apple orchard, and the Penfield Men's Rockford Plaid Yoke Down Jacket. Fashioned in the same light as your Grandfather's old puffy, the Rockford features a vintage-inspired construction, yet assures modern-day warmth and versatility.
More specifically, the Rockford is constructed using a tenacious nylon fabric that offers wind-resistant protection, while the DWR treatment safeguards you from light drizzles and snowfalls alike. The 80/20 down fill insulation offers roasty-toasty warmth on chilly autumn days, and the snap closure maintains an authentic look. Not to mention, the myriad of pockets are designed to keep necessities like your phone or train pass close at hand.

Is it winter yet?
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large
I wanted a jacket to wear walking the dogs or going out after skiing, etc... came across this jacket just browsing Backcountry. I've never owned a Penfield product but here's what I like thus far; 1) It fits perfect, longer sleeves, a little past the belt line, doesn't balloon out at the bottom. 2) Classic style and utility, I'm fairly certain I have my dad's from 1974 just flat stuffing and a different brand. 3) Extra (Metal) snap buttons, sounds dumb but when buttons have a label on them I hate losing them.

I never write reviews but this jacket was so good I couldn't resist. I have worn it almost every day since it arrived and receive compliments all the time. It fits me perfectly (true to size) and is the most comfortable thing I own... I may or may not have fallen asleep in it on some camping trips. Aside from the perfect comfortability and fit... the plaid detailing is my favorite part. I am seriously considering buying it in every color.
