Stefanie Graeterwrote a review of Volcom Shadow Insulated Jacket - Women's on December 24, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
TBH I rarely write reviews, but this jacket is so good that I wanted to spread the good fortune of it coming into my life. I obsessively looked for a coat this year and can’t believe I made the right choice. First off, it is so flattering and stylish for a sporty coat. It is warmer than I expected— wearing it with cashmere sweaters in the high twenties works for me. While below that I would be cold, I have been so happy to wear this for dog walks most of the season, as it’s much nicer and less cumbersome than my big winter parka. And still, because it’s breathable, it fulfills the elusive jacket weather niche of cold-freezing rain/wet snow that is important for the endless winters of Chicago. Visiting CA for the holidays, it does work for milder temperature rain too. Seems perfect for winter sports if you need a hybrid coat. In sum, it’s totally watetproof, cozy, designed smartly, and well-made. I get compliments all the time in the city too, which doesn’t hurt. The brown color is gorgeous. A small would have likely fit, but I got a medium because I need to layer and the arms are nice and long and the length is good (mid-thigh), but the shape remains flattering. So so happy with my purchase.
