    Yeah, I used one last Xmas. They work, you just have to go to the visa web site or call the 800 number to register the card with your address. (And keep the card after you use it, if you want th $$$ back if you return something).

    Do the flannels shrink any? I picked up a couple and they fit just right but can't afford any shrinkage. They feel like they're gonna shrink and I'm not sure if I should size up.

    They didn't shrink much or at all for me. Cold wash, hand dry.

    Alex you've been debating this decision for days.

    The Uniqlo ULD is more of a liner. They sell thicker down jackets/coats for real cold weather.

    yeah, there's no uniqlo here which is what has made my decision harder.
    my friends have been half half on it. half are saying its good enough for snow weather and the other half are like.. "no you need 4 more layers with it"

    Uniqlo has $20 off $50 right now.

    The proper down jacket or 4-way coat would be better than the hollister jacket.

    I wouldn't size up. They didn't really shrink that much for me, and i machine washed. When i sized up, some areas billowed out and the fit just wasn't that great.

    I live in MN, and sometimes in 10F weather I just wear a t-shirt underneath the jacket and go out. Chances are you live somewhere warmer than I do and the ULD jacket would totally suffice.

    And the best part about ULD is that it moderates your body heat. It's just as warm as you need it to be. That fleece jacket is gonna make you all sweaty and stuffy once you engage in some physical activity or when it gets a bit warmer.

    Fairly large. I know a guy who typically wears a medium that ended up with an extra-small. For what its worth, looking at the size charts helps.

    Hmm, thanks. I ordered my size since everything was sold out at the time. Hopefully it doesn't turn out to be too big. It does look really big for a small according to the size chart though. I really should have looked at it before ordering but I was in a rush to get the order in since the last 3 orders i tried to make, the item sold out before i made up my mind.
