Couldn't be happier! I decided to invest in a new jacket when I pulled out my trusty old goretex rain jacket and my boyfriend said I looked like I was wearing a "bomb shelter". This jacket looks and fits great. It is amazingly light weight, you can hardly tell you have it on. Even though it is a smaller cut, it's so light that it doesn't restrict movement at all (unlike my old bomb shelter). I was concerned I wouldn't be able to layer up underneath if it was a slimmer cut, but theres still plenty of room for a base and mid layer, and it still looks feminine! It seems very well made - again, I was concerned that surely something stylish couldn't possibly be good quality as well. I feel confident to use it as a rain jacket for multi day hikes. I think it will also be great for snow boarding. And best of all, I wouldn't feel out of place wearing it down town with jeans.
