by MillsProvostyfromLightweight and toasty!This was a completely unplanned purchase and it has become one of the most valuable outdoor items I own!! Perfect for cold wind, light rain, layering on top of long johns for extra insulation...and so easy to stuff away for light packing. It's really an all around super jacket!

by ZaziefromLove itI had not found what I wanted until I spotted that jacket on the way out. What attracted my attention first was the color: a semi-dark silvery hue vibrant but not shiny - perfect for me as I do not like the stark, very shiny colors usually available in those types of jackets: red, green, black, blue.
I bought the small which fits me just right with a sweater underneath or even a down sleeveless vest (5'4", 130lbs). I was only in mild rain so I do not know how the jacket will perform under wetter conditions. It is feather light.
I wore this wonderful jacket during the ice storm in Florida and it was perfect with a big felted scarf. I was cozy and very happy. Back in California it will be perfect for winter or days in the city and for hiking (though it might become too warm).
The only think I do not like is the logo on the breast so when I wear the jacket in the city as I did in Florida and New Orleans I hide the logo under my scarf.

by ZaziefromLove itI bought the small and it fits perfectly (5'4", 130lbs) with enough room even with an insulated vest underneath. I wore it during an ice storm and I was warm and cozy with a big scarf.
Love the silver color which is a nice hue not shiny and a nice change from the stark, bold colors typical of this type of vests.
Great length. Price a bit steep but exactly what I wanted
