This is a great coat - feels just right for most of what winter brings us here in the Rockies. Soft but strong leather in a perfect weight. This coat was comfortable on day one - can't wait until it's fully broken in. Perfectly placed and proportioned pockets. Extends about 4" below the belt, concealing..., er, whatever you may still be carrying if you suddenly have to go into town. Customer service was superb. Rather than make me drive 150 miles to the nearest retailer, STS guided me to the right size (I'm in-between sizes) and shipped within two days. Appreciate that kind of service out here.
