    Here is an example for you all:

    Item and Brand Name: Patagonia R4 Windfleece Coat

    Date Purchased: March 2003

    Retail Outlet: Middlebury Mountaineer (VT)

    Purchase Price (optional): $120

    MSRP: $215

    Description of item and your experiences: The golden fleece--very warm and durable. Made in US. Can be bulky. I can't wear it from April through October since it is so warm, so be aware. The warmth makes it less versatile. I wear it on cold days...been skiing on days in the teens and it is toasty ALONE with no other shell. The windproof fleece works. Worth the money. Good pockets for carrying stuff and venting. Nice cord adjustment on waist keeps cold out.

    Overall Rating (1-5 with 1 being "horrible" and 5 being "outstanding"): 5 (though it is VERY warm and not quite as versatile as could be)



    Would you recommend the item? For winter mountaineering and skiing yes. I try not to use it too much for streetwear, but you see a lot of folks using it for that (why I don't know...it belongs in the mtns ).
