Thanks for the clarification Giles. Its funny actually, because now when you google fleece all the results seem to indicate it is a synthetic material, and if you google "natural fleece" you literally get no returns indicating it can even be derived from animals -- instead alluding that it can be mixed with natural materials.

Thanks Giles! That looks like a good read but a wee bit too long for me to go through at work  :D.

Open floor question -- in terms of warmth, how would this compare to the leather flight jacket or the deck jacket? Looking for warmth being here in Canada but I do have a parka for when it's truly cold -- just looking for that nice transitional piece that can perform up until the coldest parts of the year.

This will be equally warm as the ANJ-4, the sheepskins are the same thickness. I find myself reaching for my B6 more than my N1 when its colder, but my N1 when the windchill is greater as it is far more windproof thanks to the interlining

Did I read right that there isn't any front pockets anywhere?
