    No, because the shell is 25% synthetic, and better items can be found for a similar price. Others would say the question should have been made in an existing thread.

    I'm curious to know what you're basing your estimate of quality on. Please provide details.

    IMO, it's not worth $250, let alone the $400 list price. I could find a similar jacket for at least half of that price. The materials don't seem impressive at all. The fact that it's from A&F probably pushed the price up. Still, what are you basing your statement on?

    The material is most likely somewhat stiff, and shitty.

    I can't imagine A&F making anything good.

    A&F is purely a fashion brand. You know what people say about fashion brands...

    Just be pragmatic and go for utility first. No one is going to notice any logos on your clothes anyway.

    Just wait for their sales; should be able to get this for less than half and probably a no brainer at that point.

    Agree. Or you can find better another type on ebay for even less the cost.
