I had been planning to air a similar complaint. I think they look okay but from a function/quality perspective are substandard. A button fell off each of the first two times I wore my new jacket. I used some pliers to close up gaps in the hooks and loops, so I think they should stay on okay now. However, I am not sure they will actually end up being more durable than buttons that are sewed on with repeated buttoning and unbuttoning of the jacket over time.
