Looking to make my first leap into a softshell and the reviews of this product have been compelling... A few questions:
1. How warm is this jacket as a standalone? Intend for this jacket to be my all-around in Western MI, near the lake, with the ability to throw a shell over top for snow, rain, etc.
2. Are there wrist closures? If so, elastic or velcro?
3. I see one lining comment only. Is the lining warm? Does it bind when wearing a non-technical (cotton) layer underneath?
I know it's a lot, but hate going through multiple returns b/c can't try before I buy.
Thanks for any/all assistance!
