Is this strictly a layering in piece or can it be used as a top layer to wear around town as a light jacket or on the hill for spring skiing? From the comments it sounds like a layering piece, I'm looking for more a light jacket that can be worn over other layers to cruise to the apre spot in or rock for spring days.
This would sit in my book as a layering and non wet/windy day outer garment. I would at least use a light soft shell over this if it is being used for generally wetter spring skiing.
actually, it's made with polartec windpro, so it's fine to use as an outer layer. however, it will not be sufficient in stormy weather. wear it by itself on nice but cool days, and layer it under a shell on stormy days.
