I like the subtle design changes compared to the IHJ-38 (was that version 1 of this jacket?).  Both the pocket shapes and the new zipper pulls are nice little details of Iron Heart improving for each generation  8)

This jackets seems to have sold out fast this time, but for anyone on the fence about this jacket; it's unbelievable warm for how light and thin the jacket is!!  Not full on winter warm, but in the autumn and spring, this thin layer of fabric will in most cases be enough outerwear on top of a shirt or tee.

Also I like the jacket for travels, with it's light weight and small footprint, should I want to take it off and stuff it in a backpack.  The numerous pockets is also a huge plus for me!

Only downside I have of the jacket is the very slight "scratchy" noise of the material, but I guess that's unavoidable with all synthetic materials.

It was the review by @Cutlasshound that sold me on the previous iteration of the jacket, though it would be fitting to share it here:

Rarely do I write about things in any detail on the forum, as time would have me busy doing other things.  However I feel that this one deserves something more from me.

One of my biggest problems in life is jackets. I love them. I have a lot of them. One thing that has been lacking for quite some time though, is a decent technical jacket.

I have an old Nike ACG one that performed admirably for years but is now fucked. I also have a Ma.Strum jacket which is based on a coat from the Massimo Osti archives. Its great but it is neither black,nor is it remotely breathable.

I have encountered many that I have liked, but there has always been some issue. Either cost has been ridiculous (Acronym, Veilance, Norse Projects); they have too much or no insulation; are a slim cut (Acronym); or suffer from bad reviews/quality issues (Ten-C).

I had given up my quest. It was however resurrected a fee weeks ago, when whilst sat watching a Quins match, i was smashed in the face/torso by pissing rain and wind for a solid hour. Bugger this I thought, so the search recommenced, only to encounter the same problems.

I had always had my eye on the Quilted Riders jacket. Sort of dismissed it though, as I didnt think that it would suit my needs (warm / ligtweight / breathable / good for layering). Furthermore, it reminded me of the quilted Barbour jackets that have become so popular in recent years and I was not convinced the sizing would work.

Fate had me in Gosport last week and, naturally, within 30 seconds of walking through the door my resolve to not buy anything suffered a catastrophic failure.

As soon as I tried this on, realisation struck that this thing is seriously underrated and understated. It is incredibly lightweight, smart and has excellent insulation properties. Not only that, it is also breathable, which is essential for me as I have a high body temperature most if the time.  The comparison between this and the quilted Barbour jackets is also remiss as this just oozes quality.

The nylon shell has a nice sheen to it and is absolutely wind proof.  I have not yet worn it in a downpour but in a light drizzle the outer worked effectively as a membrane to repel water.

The cuffs and internal collar are constructed from a nice tightly woven nit and the large standup collar has a lovely soft lining.

The insulation is compact, which means that the jacket does not suffer from being overly bulky.  I should also be able to use it as a liner with some of my other coats (RMC M-65 springs to mind, although not tried it yet).

The slanted pockets on the side have a popper fastening. The opening slightly overlaps the inner, which works efficiently at protecting contents and is very practical.

Re sizing, I went for an XXL in the end. I am normally an XL in work shirts, L in tshirts and a XXL in westerns/vests.

Of all the things that I have bought from IH in the last two years, this is the thing that has really come out of the left field for me. When i get the chance I will certainly post some fit pics over the next week or two.

I agree about the warmth to thickness/weight ratio.  It is my go-to jacket when I travel, it's super comfy, packs up small, washes well, and looks good.

I wore mine for a lot of the extension build, so it regularly got filthy.  After a wash, it looks like new.

I like this, but no right now.  :-[


However the IH jackets are underrated. The Jeans, UHF, the Vests, everyone raves about, but the Jacket quality is phenomenal, they are practically bomb proof.

I've had an IHJ-45 for several years now....looks new after a wipe down.  8)

In Japan, our technical outerwear does amazingly well.  I'm thinking that this must be because the Japanese are willing to believe that if we can make decent jeans etc, then all our stuff must be pretty good.  I think there is a tendency in the West to think, no way can that be as good as "established technical brand a" or "established technical brand b"
