Comments about REI La Porte Jacket - Women's:
OMG, can I just say how much I love this jacket? I bought this for an upcoming trip to Paris. I wanted something that would be lightweight, keep me dry in light rain, and (the hard part) be stylish.
It meets all of that, and is decently warm too. Definitely if it's over one of the cardigans that are in heavy rotation in my wardrobe. It has a nice sporty elegance, which makes it useful when my boyfriend and I are riding our bikes to a dinner date. When I begin bike commuting in May, I don't see why I can't wear this.
I wasn't sure what to expect... but I ADORE my LaPorte jacket. I wear it with one of my scarves, and usually earn a compliment every time I wear it. Makes me feel good!
A reason I don't like typical windbreakers/light rain jackets is that suddenly my shape is moot. With wide hips and broad shoulders, that belt helps emphasize my waist. The belt is also useful when I don't feel like buttoning or zipping (that's right, it offers both!) the jacket. The fabric is flexible enough to move in - I don't feel constricted - yet seems like it'll be durable enough to last through many adventures. (And if not, there's always that REI guarantee, eh?)
