The M R is a waist length jacket, with a down filled hood incorporated into the collar, two outside pockets and two inside breast pockets simple and beautiful! Cold and freezing temperatures can be mortally dangerous once you engage for real, so Valandre designed the M R without any compromise. Valandre designed the M R with 100% articulated cut and non down shift baffle technology, allowing a liberty of movement in all directions. The collar features a new design that provides perfect insulation no matter of the hood is up or tucked into the incorporated zipper pocket. This is accomplished by constructing three separate down filled compartments in the collar, one in the back of the neck and two in the front. The front two compartments have more down to keep the neck and cheek area warm while the back compartment has less down to allow for space whether the hood is up or down. The hood sports six down filled compartments keeping insulation where you want it and your head nice and warm. The hand pockets are designed like a tunnel to the allow your hands to burrow down inside the jacket where your body's core has already warmed the space. Nice and toasty and instantly warm! The wide elastic waistband of the M R has a adjustment feature allowing customization for a broad range of body types. You get the correct fit and tension around the hips, making user that cold air can't penetrate the M R from below. All of this is wrapped into a jacket that once you put it on, you will think, Man it fits like an Italian glove.
