    Question Anyone have these barn jackets from smartpak?

    Are these jackets nice? Would you get them again? Any other places you would order from? Have to do it online so local is out. Thanks

    I have this jacket in navy for my stable jacket. I wear it all winter and love that the inside of the sleeves are nylon lined so sweaters and thick tops slide into the arms easily. I would certainly buy one again, the price is good for the quality, and I've tossed it in the wash many a time after races or mucky days around the barn.

    I had my husband's done by Big D (http://www.bigdweb.com/MICRO-FIBER-J...ctinfo/468728/) and while I LOVE the way his came out with the white stitching on royal blue on the back, I know he has trouble with the sleeves being fully fleece.

    I have one, too, and am very pleased with it. As jengersnap said above, the jacket is very good quality for the price. I am hard on my clothes,and this jacket looks great still. Just toss it in the wash and it comes out looking practically new.

    I also like the roomy cut ... I am a huge wimp about cold and like to put on multiple layers. This jacket makes a nice wind- and waterproof topper.

    I also have this jacket and appreciate the roomy cut. I like to layer and this jacket does make a great topper. It really is good value for the price and as does hold up nicely after multiple washes.

    I have this jacket and love it! The custom embroidery looks great and the jacket is well made and comfortable. I love the nylon lined sleeves and the cut of the jacket works well layered over a sweatshirt. I am tossing about buying another one since I wear mine on a daily basis!

    I don't have that jacket but I do have the windbreaker:

    Love it! I actually got another one since I loved the first one so much. The embroidery is nice and it's very comfy and warm for just being a windbreaker. I love that it zips down far enough that I can take it off w/ a helmet on!

    I actually have both the jacket and the windbreaker and LOVE them both

    I have just about worn out the windbreaker and am ready to buy a new one soon. The jacket is very roomy and I should have maybe bought a size smaller but it is great if I need to wear lots of layers.

    I don't have this one, but unless you just want the personalization, I bet you could get the same thing (fleece lined, water resistant nylon jacket) from an outdoor store for cheaper.
