As far as the price goes ($228) I’ve decided that although I would like it to be the same price as the Everyday Yoga Jacket at $178, it’s not that far off from the Bomber Jacket from last year which was about $198 and I feel quite comfortable with it for a metropolitan style jacket. The SE Scuba Hoodies are $128 and the very basic Effortless Hoodie is $78. If those prices aren’t crazy then I think a weather appropriate dressy jacket at $228 isn’t that ludicrous. I can’t compare it to a down jacket or snowboard jacket because they are very different styles of jackets with different uses. Just depends on your lifestyle and what you intend on using it for. If you live in an area with mild winters than there is no point in spending $300 on a 700 fill down jacket but if your in Saskatoon SK where the windchill can be -50 in January but hardly any rainfall than your better off investing in a down jacket. That being said, if the jackets do go on sale as a price adjustment and not loot i’ll be going in and exchanging it for the price difference.
