I live in Connecticut where we have all four seasons and lots of reasons to be outside.

It depend what you have on underneath and what you are doing. You'll be cold with just a thin t-shirt standing around on a 15 degree day. If you have on two thick shirts, some gloves, a hat and you keep moving you should be fine. You loose a lot of heat from your head and hands. On that note this jacket is fine on a 60 degree day with just a t-shirt. I don't sweat while I'm standing around with the jacket zipped up. If I did start to get hot I'd just unzip it. Common sense really. Same for the cold. You really don't want a jacket that will keep you warm from 15 to 60. I don't think anybody makes one anyway. Jacket are like sleeping bags. There's no such thing as a four season bag. You get the 20 degree bag and sleep with your cloths. This jacket is like the almost all around 20 degree bag.

You will not be disappointed by this jacket. This is one of the nicest pieces of clothing I own. People will notice the jacket. The material, construction and design are top notch. You will not be disappointed. I got the black and was worried it would be it would be a lint and hair magnet. The outside is always clean and silky looking. Stop debating and just get it. You'll love it and if you don't Backcountry has their guarantee.

Does anybody know of gloves made of similar material? I love this jacket! Ordered a pair of black diamond windstopper gloves but I'll be returning them soon. They don't repel water, are fuzzy and less than windproof the seams are single stitched. The air goes right through. I'd like a pair that have the same exterior as the jacket. Something that matches. Any suggestions?

These things are amazing. Not only are they the lighest things out there they are also no snag. The keylocking feature is priceless. I wish someone would make oval keylock biners. I have a few oval wire biners left for my gear and everything snags on. I hate them. Do yourself the favor and get all keylocking gear. It's a lot safer if your barely holding onto the wall and you aren't dealing with a quickdraw snagged on your shirt.
