I have had many down jackets and all have had ended with tears under the arms and also the down clumping up after getting wet. I use them for Sailing, Golf and dog walking and this option from Rooster fitted the bill.
The flexible hard wearing panels under the arms, on the sleeves and down the sides are fantastic and the synthetic filling does just as good of a job as down but with the benefit of drying quickly whilst retaining form. The fit is great and the quality is fantastic. Would highly recommend.
