It's been a few weeks, and I'm very happy with this jacket so far. I'm not a pro welder, but I can be welding/grinding for hours some days. I'm impressed on how comfortable it is, and often find myself just wearing it around all day. Maybe Miller changed the design recently, but the button snaps have stayed firmly planted - no issues so far. Working in 50-60 deg temperatures, it's perfect. I can see how in warmer climates others say it can get hot. For my usage and for the price, this jacket has been near perfect for me.
Like some others have mentioned, the neck size is small for me. I'm a stocky guy, and I have the same problem with dress shirts too. While I can get it to snap, it's not comfortable. So far my welding helmet has been able to cover the gap with the collar open though.
