Is it a sweater or a jacket? Great either way!

I bought this "jacket" last winter and really like it. I consider it more of of a sweater and use it under a Gore Tex shell for really cold days. The DWR Finnish has done well in showers and wet snow on the coast of Maine. For the worst days, I wear several layers of Merino or a light wool sweater under it, then a shell over. I am 6"3' and 180lbs and wear a large which fits well. Probably not a good fit for bulkier builds as I find it snug when layering. It will shed some down over time; don't be too uptight about it, all down clothing does. Overall, I highly recommend this jacket if you are lean and want a versatile sweater that can be a jacket too.
