I have to say for the first time I am disappointed with a Massdrop purchase. The only way I could be more disappointed in this jacket is if it was actually falling apart. As it is, this jacket does not seem like the typical quality that Rothco is known for putting out. It feels more like a windbreaker, not a parka. Perhaps my perspective is skewed because I had an old Rothco parka that was issued to my dad when he was in the Army. Cold could not penetrate that thing, and it weighed a ton. This jacket is not much more than the windbreaker I mentioned a moment ago. And worst of all, it looks cheap.
Take it for what it's worth. If you're cool with getting a lightweight "parka" (which is sized a big big BTW), then you will be happy. If you're an old military guy like me, and were expecting the military grade parka, then you'll not be happy.
