Had it for a couple of months now, and like it. Breaths really well in warm weather. I like that it has button loops that can loop around your belt and keep the jacket on your back
That spinal padding is actually not that hard. Breaks in pretty easily. I ordered mine in the mail and the pad was a little bit creased, but straightened out with normal use. The jacket is very comfortable.question - is it hard to break in the spinal protecton? looks pretty hard??
