When you need to escape the city smog, pull on the Smartwool Women's Double Corbet 120 Hooded Jacket, grab your snowshoes, and leave it all behind. This jacket features Smartwool's heaviest SmartLoft insulation for ultimate warmth as you explore the trails. A DWR finish helps repel water from the fabric's surface to keep you dry even when the clouds move in and the snow begins to fall. Wind-resistant panels protect against the elements, so that you can worry less about the cold and enjoy the beauty around you. A merino wool lining wicks and helps regulate temperature whether you're on your way up or down the trail. The updated quilting pattern adds stylish texture that allows this jacket to transition from trail to town.

This is a great-looking jacket, cut to flatter, and the baffles are cute. I am 5'5" and 145, small waist, runner's butt. The medium is perfect. I was prepared to love it, and initially felt excited to take it on the trail. Jacket does a moderately good job at repelling light rain, and even when the outer shell is damp, you won't be damp yourself. On the other hand, I did expect this to have better insulating properties. It is marketed as appropriate for stop-and-go cold weather activities. I wore it with a wool zip-t at 37F and after an hour in light snow I was decidedly chilled through my torso. I was walking briskly the entire time. I usually find that two wool layers do the job for me; I wear the same zip-t with an Ibex wool sweater jacket (an eight-year-old workhorse that I love) and do not get cold when hiking in near-freezing temps. So, this was a little disappointing. Also, though I've been wearing the jacket on a daily basis for only three weeks - walks, errands, no big deal - the cuff of one sleeve is partially detached, and there are loose threads around the main zipper. I have to sew the cuff back on already on a $200 jacket! Haven't even taken it on a serious hike. So, I'd say (1) it is too expensive for the quality you get, at full price anyway, and (2) wear it under a real waterproof shell if you plan on stop-and-go use, or even continuous activity in near-freezing temps, especially when there is a possibility of getting damp. It is very cute for street wear, no doubt about it.
