Exactly that. I don't make much money. $2000 is what I make in a good few months and my decision to invest into another LW ought to tell you how impressed I was with their jacket. My first SD was possibly the best cross zip I've seen. Perfect jacket if there even is such a thing... So yeah, again, this isn't about LW making a bad product. Because they usually make a great jacket. What @red devil says, if you have the opportunity to call / drop in / whatever, by all means, don't let this thread discourage you from buying a LW jacket. It's worth it.
