The Hecktic is everything I wanted it to be: warm, waterproof and well-constructed. It runs true to size and fits comfortably without being either too tight or too loose. I have worn it in single digit temperatures and have been nothing but comfortable. Moderate activity (snow shoveling) and you warm up quickly, but the many zippered vents solve that issue. If I had to find a criticism, it would be the red red panels inside the collar. (on the black jacket) You don't see this in any of the pictures, but if the front zipper is not zipped all the way up, you expose the bright red inner neck panels.
