To me, that's every bit as good as the upcoming Storm Rider, yet it got very little love.  Equally, the 101J wasn't a great hit in comparison to the 526s, yet lots of people can't wait for the Storm Rider.  Colour me confused ???

I think there was a lot of excitement for this but studying the thread and the extinct section, there was a lot of consternation regarding measurements (it is atypical, being overly long in the body but slim horizontally) and it had competition for peoples money. Being lucky enough to own one, despite it not having the best fit for me, it serves as an example of how the right measurements aren't decisive for a kickass jacket. I've lost weight and could probably get into an XL now. I doubt I'll ever see one though, and wearing this over layers is really not a chore  ;)

EDIT: with regards to the 526 vs. 101j, I love the design of the 101j. Still haven't bought one because I've far too many examples of this kind of jacket. Generally it just seems the majority of people love the type III more, in the same way westerns are generally preferred to to work shirts. (Recent) history suggests that majority opinion isn't necessarily to be trusted  ::)
