This is the jacket that everyone has been asking about recently, the 5.11 Insulator Jacket! To cut to the chase, it's awesome but 5.11 as a company isn't and the question is, can I recommend this product?

First off, this jacket looks awesome! I love it and so do many of you as I have seen the hundreds of comments concerning it.
Very warm – I’m comfortable down to the mid 40’s with this jacket with only a t-shirt. Add a good insulation layer such as a merino wool sweater and I’ve rocked this down to around 15F.
Comfortable. – Warm – Easily adaptable to temp ranges
Very well thought out jacket.
Easy of access to your front carry and conceal.
Plenty of pockets
No obnoxious branding
Excellent value for the money with the sale price.
The collar is just ok in my opinion. It never gets on my nerves but I find that I am having to adjust it from time to time as it has a tendency to stick up and touch my face. This is VERY small con and doesn’t impact my thoughts on this jacket at all but I want to mention it.
Terrible Customer Service
