The GERRY® men's Patriot down jacket can handle whatever Mother Nature decides to dish out. A rugged softshell that you can wear around town or on the mountain, it repels wind and water and traps heat next to your body with its down and feather fill. Interior and exterior pockets offer a ton of storage, while adjustment points on the hood, cuffs and hem help you secure a snug fit for additional warmth and protection from the elements.

Comments about GERRY SPORTSWEAR CORP. GERRY Men's Patriot Down Jacket:
After comparing several different down-filled winter coats, I found the Patriot jacket by Gerry to be a perfect fit for what I wanted. It's lightweight but very warm, fits well (most other "small" jackets, Gerry included, ran annoyingly large), and seems to keep rain, snow, and the cold out.
That being said, I do have two small complaints. First, the lack of a Napoleon-style breast pocket is a bit of an inconvenience, but there are two interior mesh pockets that make up for it. Secondly, and perhaps the more annoying of the two, this jacket leaks down feathers for the first several weeks of wear. It's an annoying problem, especially when you're trying to wear this jacket on top of dress clothing. Once the down settles, though, the jacket is nearly perfect!
