Long, slim, and cozy.
Long, lean, and cozy, the Burton Caster Women's Insulated Jacket's the perfect thing to zip up when you're taking a day off from ripping lines in the Alps to head into town for some sightseeing. The Caster will keep you warm from the high-rent neighborhoods to the ski-town bars with a mid-thigh length, DryRide Thermex polyester insulation, and a wool-blend lower body that gives the jacket a seriously eye-catching look. It resists moisture too, with a polyester upper that's been treated with a DryRide DWR coating. If you get warm on your downtown adventures, you can cool off by popping open the underarm vents and slipping the Lycra thumbhole cuffs off your hands—you'll feel as cool as you look.

I bought both a small and medium and neither size fit. I am usually a small in most jackets. I am 5'6 and 130lbs. This jacket was very narrow in the hips.
Burton Caster Insulated Jacket - Women's
How warm is this jacket? I lead trips in the desert in the winter—it gets very cold and very windy, below freezing, and we often have to sit or be outside in the cold in the evenings and early mornings not moving too much (seated in circle). Thin synthetic insulation hasn't done me well, even with several layers underneath. I'm looking for something incredibly warm, like wearing a sleeping bag. I want to feel 100% confident that no matter the weather I'm going to be warm so that I can give 100% of my attention to my clients.
Is this coat suitable for really cold and windy winter weather?
For casual use, it'll be ok in nasty weather, but it's not intended to protect you in seriously nasty storms like you'd find alpine climbing or something similar. It's a solid around-town jacket though, like for the horrible winter Boston's having.
