This jacket has solved my purchase problems of replacing a brush/denim jacket every year! The constructions and material are worth the price. I cannot tell you how many years I have tried to find a tailor to add a inside pocket to my denim jackets, the Mesquite jacket has great pockets and solves the problem of sticking items in the pockets of my jeans! I have used my jacket for the last 4 years, if it is cold out I add a wool vest. Care is very easy, follow the directions and dry flat. Unlike the worn out denim look the sunwashed jacket is nice enough for trips to town with the wife. Bottom line is buy this jacket for riding, choring, or just because you need a good garment made of high quality!
