I like the look and feel of the fabric. Could have a bit more tailoring and zippered pockets. Runs a bit large can fit a sweater underneath.
Sur Thing Jacket
Fit find through the body; but the sleeves way too short. Have returned.
Sleeves are sticky
I have owned this same jacket from T.A. in the past, but sadly left it behind in a hotel and was unable to recover it. I loved the jacket, so ordered it again. This time however the inside of the sleeves was weirdly sticky, it was actually hard to put on over bare or covered arms. I understand that this coating was put on to provide rain protection, but there should be some kind of lining here. The previous Sur Thing coat I owned did not have this peculiar feature. Please put lining in the sleeves; otherwise it is too difficult to put on and too uncomfortable to wear.
Good Fit, Good Look
I've had trouble with sizing at Territory Ahead in the past: large being a tad too roomy and medium being just north of skimpy but this time, the fit was perfect. I ordered black and I really like the flat hue of it after washing. The zipper, another trouble spot I've had at T.A., looks hefty enough for the task. I'm quite pleased with my buy.

Although I customarily order medium because the sizes generally run big, this one was on the other end of the fit. It was way to small and I also just ordered a shirt, medium, which fit fine. This could, I assume be corrected by ordering a size up but a bigger problem is the sleeve lining which grabs the clothing you putting it over, very annoying and unacceptable. If the coating is necessary then the sleeves need to be lined.
This jacket fits me well although this brand seems to run small in Men's sizes. The sleeves in the blue jacket are less sticky than the tan jacket. It is a good light jacket if you get the size right and don't mind unlined sticky sleeves.
It is a good light weight jacket, but sizes run small and unlined sleeves are sticky. Medium size was too small for my husband; he normally wears Medium size in other brands. I kept it for myself rather than return it.
I purchased a Sausolito Jacket and was very pleased. The description of that jacket said it was based on the design of this jacket, so I ordered one to have a different color/fabric. The big difference? THE SLEEVES ARE UNLINED. The fabric is coated on the inside for water repellency, which gives it a rubbery feel. This makes it very difficult to slide into the sleeves and feels very strange if you wear it over a short sleeved shirt.
This has become my favorite jacket- color, fabric and lining exactly as advertised, and a good fit. The material is also water-repellent, and the jacket is good for fall and spring weather in the northeast US.

Nice and versatile
This has become my favorite jacket, and I'm carrying it everywhere. In black, it is very simple, a little stylish, at home at a ball game or a nice restaurant. The shell is soft, tightly-woven and water-resistant, with a nice feel and satin-like texture. The sleeves are unlined, so it never feels too hot. There is room inside for extra layers, so it's easy to make it warm enough when the temperature drops. It does fine in a heavy rain, as long as your hat has a brim. The collar is a comfortable polyester fabric with a ribbed texture. The striped lining is light but durable cotton, and looks classic. Snaps and zipper are also very sturdy.
Not a sure thing
The Sur Thing jacket was not a sure thing for me. Compared to other spring jackets, the fabric was not â€œlightweightâ€ or â€œcrinklyâ€ as stated in the description. The fabric is a medium-to-heavy, stiff canvas material, and it resembles a jean jacket in feel and appearance. If you are hoping for a tough, James Dean sort of look, this jacket would fit the bill. Personally, I was hoping for something I could wear to the office and around town. The â€œzero frillsâ€ description, on the other hand, was right on target. Unlike jackets from other manufacturers, there are no expansion pleats on the back or shoulders. This means the jacket is not very flexible for different body builds. I am a trim guy with a lean waist and moderately broad shoulders. I found the jacket was loose around the waist and too tight in the arms and shoulders. Given the â€œzero frills,â€ the price for this jacket-- around $100--is unusually high. You can get a Lee jean jacket at Pennyâ€™s for $45. I returned my jacket and decided to look for something that is more versatile and better made.
