I accidentally ended up with two, the mineral color, and the eclipse, expecting to return one. I love them both so much that I kept them. I keep them in rotation, one for work, one for outdoor activities. How warm is it? After a day snowboarding in Tahoe, I stood around outside with my Delta SV on, my jacket hanging open, while the rest of my friends were shivering. The cut is stylish and flattering to the feminine form. I've been complimented wearing it to work. It's not dressy, per se, but I don't look like I should be wearing hiking shoes with it, either. The sleeves are long enough for those of us with slightly longer arms. The wrists are tight enough that they won't ride up when layered with a shell. The high neck zippered area is soft and protected, you won't get a rash where the zipper ends like with other jackets. It's soft & fluffy, the colors are nice, every detail has been worked out but I trust it to be rugged. If you run on the colder side, or spend time in the cold outdoors, you won't be disappointed. This is a very warm jacket.
