If I end up living in Iowa City for a while, this one will absolutely be required. My HG-5 is an awesome jacket, no doubt, but the Iowan winters require something a little more ‘arctic’. Temperatures this winter hit a low -28 in Cedar Rapids, and -40 in Coggon (near Cedar Rapids). Come next winter, I will be prepared.
Steve McQueen wore the non-arctic version of this jacket in the 1962 movie, ‘The War Lover’.
