This jacket is a great looking jacket and it's versatility makes it a pleasure to own. I use it for wearing around town, wearing to work with business casual clothes, and wearing for jogging and doing other outdoor activities. For this reason, it's pretty much the only jacket I wear for anything since I got it. I also like it because it's so light-weight, yet really warm. It's so nice to be able to stay toasty without having the constriction of a large bulky jacket. I live in South Carolina, and although we have pretty mild winters, we still get weather in the 20s or 30s (especially in the morning when I leave for work or in the evening when I'm getting back from the gym). Wear it with a t-shirt underneath in 45-70 degree weather or long sleeves underneath for less than that and you'll be fine. This jacket holds up fine to these temps (especially with long sleeves underneath) and I think the low wind permeability of the fabric can be thanked for that. The DWR is also really cool. Although this does not mean that the jacket is totally water proof, it is still really effective at keeping you dry in light snow, rain, or mist (it's really cool to see the water just beading off!). I got stuck in a pretty bad snow storm with my girlfriend about a week ago and I was glad to have this jacket (put on some good gloves and a good thermal long sleeve shirt underneath and I felt great). The fabric is also really comfortable although it does take some getting used to at first. It may seem kind of stiff like an old-school windbreaker when you first get it but once you've worn it for a week or two and washed it once or twice, it softens up and the outer shell and inner fleece feel really nice. My only complaint is that in really heavy precipitation you do get some rain/snow down the collar (even with it zipped up) although I found that wearing a scarf or a fleece with a stand up collar underneath helps with this. Also, it feels like the armpits are cut a little high so if you're a bigger guy, have huge arms, or plan to layer a lot underneath, you may want to try a size up from your regular size (I tried one on at my local outdoor store before I ordered to be sure I was getting the right size). All in all this is an amazing jacket and is my new favorite. I originally had a Denali and I returned it to get this and am glad I did. This jacket is just as warm as the Denali but blocks the wind MUCH better and is better looking in my opinion (not as big and bulky, more form fitting, and also not as trendy). I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
