So far this has been a great jacket. It's big enough for some base layers yet still looks reasonably slim. It's very lightweight, warm, has a nice length, and is comfortable to wear. I've walked my dog many times in single digit cold weather conditions with strong winds and stayed plenty warm (with base layers). The 2 way zipper was frustrating for the first few days till it started breaking in. It was almost impossible to get the jacket zipped because the zipper would not engage into the bottom zipper. I almost returned it for that. It's now zipping easily every time thankfully and the double zipper comes in handy. One thing I would have preferred is to have the inside and outside chest pockets to be separated on each side of the zipper like the Kuhl Relik Jacket that I have. Having the two pockets on the same side means that if you put things in both (phone, wallet) you will end up with a noticeable chest bump. Not a dealbreaker but can be annoying. Overall I'm very happy with the jacket.
