I love this jacket. I can wear it from temperatures up in the 50s all the way down to the 20s with no problem. Has a cinch cord in each pocket to keep that pesky cold wind from blowing underneath. I am naturally a warm person so for some this may not be the warmest in 20-30 degree weather. Works best with a light fleece underneath. Since this is a softshell it beads off water like a champion. Overall a great buy whether going out on the town or hiking through the hill country.
