Rated4out of5byBigBendYoginifromFavorite mid-temp jacket!My father gave me this jacket Fall/2012, so I've had plenty of time to break it in and enjoy it. The fabric is lightweight and very comfortable. I can layer a long sleeve shirt and sweater underneath. It is true to size, I am 5'0'' 115 lbs and I own the jacket in XS Amethyst (purple) color.
I have worn it hiking in the middle of December, and been toasty and comfortable.
Out in Big Bend the winds are high sometimes up to 50 mph, and again, the jacket keeps me warm without being overbearing. We have relatively mild winters...Sometimes when it gets down to about 17 degrees, I reach for another coat. I would say this jacket is good down to the 30's or so. I will say that the fabric does pick up stains that are hard to get out...Even just oils or sweat around the neck area from hiking and/or arms. I have other jackets that I hike in that are much more breathable and do not retain stains. I have had some chest pocket zipper issues, but that is minor as I do not use them.
This particular jacket still remains my favorite though, because it is stylish to layer with, and the color pops, even if it looks a bit dingy on the inside now after a year and a half.

Rated3out of5byklt6fromcute, but not too warmIt's very cute but sadly, I will be sending it back. It is really quite thin - definitely not nearly warm enough for being a primary winter coat for Massachusetts. I'm 5'10"/135 lbs, ordered a medium, which fit well. Arms were long enough, torso was *just* long enough but fine. I think this one would be comfortable down to around 30 deg or so. Slim enough fitting that you couldn't put more than a layer or two under it. Great if you live in a more moderate climate or aren't looking for something for mid-winter. Otherwise, look elsewhere.

Rated5out of5byNiessafromLOVEThis jacket is lightweight, but so warm. I am generally cold all the time, so this is a perfect way for me to stay warm without wearing a huge bulky jacket. I have received many compliments on it, and love the color and texture of the fabric.

Rated4out of5byscreamingnamefromCute coatThe only downside to this coat is that the length of it is a tad short, and, it will wear easily and show oils- especially around the neck area.

Rated2out of5bysfrazierfromNot satisfiedI just wore this coat for everyday activities and within 2 weeks the zipper handle broke off. For almost $200, they need to use a stronger material. I returned it and got a new coat.
