Does any have any experience with these jackets? Iíve never heard of them. Seems expensive for what it is. Are they nice? Are they comfortable? Warm? Waterproof? Iím just looking for an overall review of it and I canít seem to find much on forums or by googling.

from what I hear people either love or hate them. A southwest guy I talked too said it runs big, so maybe order a size down. He said itís warm, and works well enough to not have to pack a jacket for his overnights. His main gripe was quality. Said it was starting to fray pretty early and was expensive for what it is.

And Southwest is probably ordering ten times the number of embroidered name tags resulting in a bulk discount from whoever supplied their name patches. Canít we just be happy about something for once?

The AirWis name tag is $20. The Southwest name tag is $20. The jacket and inner jacket cost more. Also, I never said I was unhappy. Iím just pointing out the fact that we are paying more than Southwest.

Iím playing the worldís smallest violin over here. Probably a bulk discount. Theyíre buying 10x the amount whiskey could. Why does it matter? Stick to the weird trench or the 80ís leather jacket if the extra $10 is a big deal.

Itís $16 extra, not $10. Iím not sure why youíre playing the worldís smallest violin for me. Again, Iím not complaining. Iím just pointing out facts. Southwest pilots pay less than Willy pilots for the same product. Fact.
