Great jacket. It never was exactly what I expected. It turned out to be
better than what I thought I was going to get!

Long Term Report
May 29, 2007
FIELD LOCATIONS AND CONDITIONS
I have been backpacking with the Logic Jacket for a three day trip to
Red River Gorge and an overnight trip to Zaleski State Forest during the
last two months. In addition I used it for weekly day hikes during the
period whenever the dawn temperature was cool enough to warrant use of a
jacket. All hikes were at low altitude, from 500 - 1000 ft (150 - 300
m). Temperatures ranged from about 30 - 70 F (-1 - 21 C).
LONG TERM PERFORMANCE
The jacket has continued to work as expected for the full four months of
testing. I have used it under rain wear and it kept my skin warm, even
though my skin was moist. I have slept in the jacket. I have rolled it
up and used it for a pillow for a half dozen nights.
The material has not stained or lost its water repellent finish even
though I have washed it a half dozen times. I did some off trail bush
whacking while wearing the coat and ended up with a few threads pulled
out as loops by wild roses. This is the only surface blemish I can see
on the coat at the end of the full testing period.
With the onset of the summer, I am unlikely to need a jacket until next
fall. I will miss my orange jacket and I will look forward to the
weather cooling down so I can use it again.
What I Like:
Useful from very cold to just cool weather.
Breathes well even during heavy exercise.
The best jacket I have for wearing under rain wear in cold weather.
I thank Outdoor Research and BackpackGearTest for allowing me to test
this jacket. It will continue to be part of my cool and cold weather
gear in the future.
