Welcome to the forum mayor, glad you found the forum.
On the jacket, probably made in China. :devilbanana:

Did you buy it from the womens section of the catalog?  :-D

Welcome to the forum, Mayor.  On the jacket, I have no idea.  Check on what you ordered, if its a problem see about returning it for different one.  Good luck to you on your new endeavor, it's addictive.

Hey,

What I'd like to know is how did you know there was a difference?

I had no idea. :)

Anyway got mine from Pigeon Mtn and it zips like all my other jackets.

> Why does my new pigeon mtn jacket zip like a girls jacket

So do two of my jackets from beeworks.com (Canada) and a couple of custom leather jackets I bought in another foreign country... I think that's a US concept.  It does feel awkard as I'm used to being able to unzip one handed, and I can't seem to manage it with the backward zippers...
