Organic kapok has a soft cushioned feel, never binds or stifles. Two handwarmer pockets are, well, handy, esp. as they zip up & become gear pockets. A 3rd zip pocket w. a loop is great for a righty reach.
The deep blue color w. light blue accents is mighty attractive. The ABBA is not just for girls! Found this one on clearance for under 1/3 the cost of a new Kokatat MsFit Tour just purchased. I liked the MsFit very much & would also recommend it, but guess which one got returned!
Awesome ABBA... I'd give it a 10 if it had a tab on back for a spotter & more reflective piping.
My only complaint is that I don't love the straps, they are a little close to my neck and sometimes cause a little rubbing (admittedly my skin is a little sensitive however). I'm not sure whether I'll just get used to it or if I'll end up covering the edge with fleece or something. Anyway, this is a small compromise for a vest that is WAY more comfortable than any other vest I tried. Plus, itís environmentally sound and for $100, you can't beat it!
