I got this as a gift for my mom and she is liking it thus far. Her use is around town, and she likes the cut for bopping about, as the cut is not athletic. She even said, "I like how it fits a short, chubby person." Her words, not mine (she's a wonderful lady).
She likes the hood, finds it very functional, fitting nicely over her hatted or non-hatted head. Also the pockets are nice and deep with handy and well designed pulls.
As for warmth, it has stood up to chilly temps, but truth be told she doesn't really venture out too often in the bitter cold, and if she does she has a warmer coat for those occasions. Most of her winter is spent in Utah, so there are cold days, but not Minneapolis-Alberta-Clipper plowing straight through to your bones for weeks kind of cold.
Overall she really digs this jacket, and she and I find the purple/dahlia white colorway very nice.
