For the rich!

Glad to see the ME Citadel has been updated - it's a bloomin' great jacket - and considering they used my UKC review in their ISPO marketing for the jacket (fame at last!) maybe UKC can claim to have helped ME with those updates? I mentioned the cuffs were too complicated in the review and now it has simpler cuffs! Score. :)
