by fromdisappointed Disappointed with the design of the jacket. 1) Runs a little large. I usually wear XS in baselayers, S in outerwear so I can layer underneath. I got this in a S and it was HUGE! 2) The pockets are so tiny! Handwarmer pockets are just barely large enough to fit my hands inside, definitely couldn't put my ski gloves in there when entering the lodge. And I barely fit my phone (Samsung Epic) in the chest pocket, only after much wiggling and angling around. 3) The shell AND liner have pit zips -- awesome! But the shell has a mesh fabric between the zips, so there's no way to unzip the inner liner without taking off the shell first -- WHY?!! 4) The liner has the thumb loop cuffs which are EXTREMELY tight. I could barely squeeze my hand through there, and it you do get hot, there's no way you can roll up your sleeves at all to vent. Pros would be: dark turquoise is really pretty, it IS warm (just not functional for winter sports), and it seems well-made. Unfortunately, it didn't work for me.

by fromGreat option for petite I was thrilled to find this well-designed jacket which actually fit me (a petite) without looking like it belonged to a taller friend. I found the thumb loops fit me just fine, my iPhone fits without struggle in the breast pocket. Love that it can serve as 3 jackets ... liner, shell or together. I bought the one with the bright lime green liner .. better to be seen when working outdoors. Although I bought this as a work jacket, I'll probably wear it for fun, dog walks, perhaps snowshoeing. Love all the pockets ... find that often the women's model has fewer than the men's. I also got this on sale -- an extra bonus.

by fromGreat jacket! I love this jacket! The liner has these great sleeves with thumb holes so it keeps your hands warm at all times. I can use it as just a rain jacket or a warm-weather jacket. The only con is that the liner is very short compared to the rest of the jacket so I don't like wearing it by itself. But that's a minor thing since if it's that warm out I have other jackets I can wear.

by fromPerfect fit and performance The journey to own this jacket was a long one. I first tried this jacket on at a Dallas REI, but they did not have my size. I wanted a skiing jacket for CO that could also be used on particularly cold and wintry Dallas days. After months of thinking about the jacket and hunting for my size, I finally found it in Colorado Springs and road-tripped there to get it. I am fit and thin and get cold VERY easily, so I am happy to say this jacket has kept me warm skiing in cold temps and taking my dog for long walks when it's cold outside. The inner liner is light enough to run in when it's cold outside, and the outer layer is great for cold, rainy days. When worn together, the fit is perfect. One downside might be that there is no soft, fuzzy material inside the jacket, so if it is cold outside the whole jacket gets a little cold touching the skin, but when skiing or walking my body heats up and balances out the cool jacket to keep me warm. The outer shell seems a little large when worn by itself, but that's to be expected without a thick layer underneath. Great for rainy days though. The bright inner liner is good/safe for late night exercise. So glad I purchased this jacket.

by fromGreat jacket with a lot of options It's a great jacket for the outdoors or to wear in the city for walks or shopping. I'm 5.5" and it fits perfectly. The best thing about it that it's a three-in-one deal, you get a windbreaker, a sweater and a cold-weather jacket in one product. Comfortable, great quality and not too bulky, so for sportswear it's pretty stylish too. I'm glad I purchased it.

by fromWife loved it! Got this for my small frame wife and she fit right in and everything lined up perfectly on her. She no longer says she is too cold anymore when we are outside for long periods.
