I work outside all year, this jacket has been a God send this winter. In negative wind chill weather I was in a base layer t-shirt underneath. The hood cinches down nice and tight with good vision unlike most hoods. All the zippers are heavily guarded with wind and water proofing. I've yet to use it in other seasons but so far so good. Got it for a steal on S&C. Wish it had a little more ventilation but overall a nice quality "winter" jacket. I'm 5"10" 180#'s bought a large fit was fine but I'm not full of muscles by any means.
