This jacket is awesome: excellent materials, so light, and great look. People keep on asking me whether this is an appropriate winter jacket when they see me around with it -they just can't believe it keeps me warm and dry in the midwest these days, but it does. When it gets really cold I use it together with the vest of the same brand. This combination worked pretty good the last time we drop down to -2 in Chicago. It's not a cheap jacket, but totally worth it. By the way, outstanding purchase/shipment/tracking system from this site.
