the woven look says solid, rugged, well made Columbia Gear guarantees their winter coats for a life-time. 100% guarnatee. I sent my several year old winter coat back to them for a broken zipper (which rarely happens) and they sent me a brand new jacket back that was even more more modern and updated than my original! The new replacement jacket included omni heat tech and even had interior cuffs with thumb holes. I love this amazing jacket and it was free!
