Rated4out of5byHiker HeatherfromStylish and just warm enough in 20-30'sFCONS: Though this is a women's jacket, it is not tailored for a typical woman...someone with either a butt or hips. I typically struggle to find a jacket that fits in the chest area (and am forced up a size as a result), but this is perfect in the chest but tight in the hips...very strange...my measurements are nearly the same for each area. And, it would have been smart to install a two-way zipper...especially since it's a tight fit in the hip area...then I could adjust accordingly.
PROS: Other than those two points, I love the jacket...it's perfect for weather straddling "down parka" temps and full-blown spring...just when you're tired of bundling up before heading outside. I wear a long-sleeved flannel shirt or thin jacket in addition to this coat when it's still below freezing, and I stay very cozy. It's waterproof and breathable while ALSO not making me feel uncomfortable when working up a sweat (lining inside jacket is very nice compared to other waterproof models where skin sticks and condensation just seems to collect inside the jacket...you know the kind). I hiked in it this past weekend and couldn't have been more pleased...just unzipped when got too warm, then zipped back up to get warm again.

Rated5out of5bychik on wheelsfromExcellent buyRead other positive reviews of this jacket and have to agree with the quality. Fits well except for seeming a bit snug across the chest. Lots of pockets in the right places. Works great both out on the trails or around town. I've been caught in rain and it's kept me dry except for right around the cuffs where it seemed to soak up a bit of water. Is a great outer layer over a fleece for snowshoeing, too. Purchased it during a half-off promo, so can't complain about the price.

Rated3out of5byBBIfromNot roomy enough for winterReally good looking coat with nice features including zip off hood. But sleeves are too tight to wear over a sweater. I bought this for a nice winter coat instead of wearing a ski coat to work, but you cannot wear your winter clothes under it. I usually wear medium, and everything but the tight sleeves was fine.
