This type of jacket is perfect for a layering system, and it should be fine as a stand-alone piece when you're exerting yourself, but I wouldn't rely on it as your warmest piece. I really can't stress the word "layering" enough. My GF and I have both been really happy with our own similar TNF jackets, but it's all about using them the right way, under the right conditions.

I'm not sure about the sizing you need, but your height might push you out of the small range. Get your measurements, then use the sizing chart above for comparison and recommended size. As you can probably tell, these are form-fitting, athletic cuts.

Hope this helps.
