This jacket gets top marks
I had a much earlier version (15 years ago) of this jacket, but the wristbands were too tight to check my watch and the waistband was a little too cinched up, but the weight of the jacket and the fabrics always made me think it was a good product. So, I recently checked the website to see what's available now and ended up ordering the Symmetry II after seeing that the wrists have been updated to an adjustable Velcro and the waist is cut straight down. I am NOT disappointed. This jacket checks every box. I can wear it with a heavier layer (like today when we had 30 degrees w/ 30 mph winds) or with a lighter layer when it's not so cold and the jacket just does what it's supposed to do. It cuts through the wind and keeps me warm with vents that air it out a bit. I just can't say enough. If I had more than two thumbs, I'd give it all the thumbs up!
