I bought this as a gift, and here's what she had to say , " This jacket is great. To be honest, I haven't yet worn it in super cold weather so I can't really review it for that yet. However, I have worn it in about 30 degree weather as well as a bit warmer with significant wind and haven't felt chilly at all. I also really love the colors. The zip pockets are very convenient (especially as someone who tends to drink around a campfire and lose her headlamp and chapstick!) and the length of the zipper going up the hood is great. I also have a longer torso and this covers perfectly; I had tried other jackets on and this one was definitely the way to go. This is the first expensive jacket I've bought and I am definitely a very happy camper."
