- Product Review (submitted on October 18, 2011):
- I already owned a Falstaff and love it but needed something for temperatures 80 and above. I thought the Darien light would be the perfect adjunct to what I already thought was a perfect jacket. The tan color is very smart and visible in daylight without being garish. The whole jacket looks and feels great. The material is light, breathable and waterproof. And the venting! The Darien beats any other jacket cold on hot and very hot days. Open the sleeves and let them channel the air in and around you and out the side and back vents -- cools better than anything I've ever worn. And you never have to worry about a sudden shower. Now it's mid-October with temperatures in the 60's and the Darien's still comfortable. So I guess it's my Falstaff to handle anything from November through March, and the Darien for April through October. I'm covered, literally and in every way.
