I bought this jacket last winter as a layering piece for my winter ensamble (winters in the midwest can be pretty unforgiving). It's done a great job at keeping me warm and I love how bright the color is (mine is a bright turquoise). It also has doubled many times as a car pillow because of how nice and squishy it is. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was because it does catch and pill on certain things and compacts a lot if it gets damp. But other than that it has done exactly what I expected it to do.
