I recently heard that Steve & Barry's had some great deals on stylish clothing so I had to check them out. I left the store with a great find: a down jacket for only $19.99! I had to try it out during the cold Minnesota winter!
So far, it has been performing great and it is already the end of January. It keeps me warm. It is not too puffy, so I think it has a great, close fit. There are two pockets with zippers, which is a great feature to help me not lose items. There is a thin hood that zips into the collar, which I have not had to use yet. I like that it is available, but I think it might just help to break the cold wind.
I haven't had an issue with the quality yet. I have noticed some longer threads that can get caught in the zipper. I just cut/tear them off and it solves the problem. I think it is a great buy for someone looking to keep warm. You can't beat the price for a down jacket!
