Amazing warmth!


When I initially put this on I thought there was no way it would be thick enough to keep me warm. After having about a month I can say it's the perfect casual jacket for the Pacific Northwest. It is great in the 30-50 degree range, it helps block wind and rain but is not completely wind or waterproof. Only negative is the size. I am an athletic size 6 with broader shoulders. I ordered a Medium since it was a trim fit. The shoulders are a little tight with layers while the rest of the jacket is baggy. It does stretch and is fine if I am wearing a single top, so it wasn't enough of an issue for me to return it. Overall am very happy with the jacket.



Great winter jacket


I bought this jacket to replace a busted puffy coat. I was a bit nervous buying a synthetic jacket to replace my puffy, but overall I've been super happy with it. It might not pack down as small as a down puffy, but it is just as warm, stylish, and repels water better than my old puffy. I am 5'4", 130 lbs and bought a Medium which fits great, slim-ish, but with room for a sweater underneath. The arms are extra long, which can be weird for casual wear, but is nice for active uses (skiing, biking).

This just might be the perfect jacket


THIS IS A WOMEN'S JACKET AND IT HAS SIX POCKETS! I just had to shout it from the peaks. It's so uncommon, and in my opinion/needs—so welcomed! What's nice is that even with a plethora of pockets, the jacket does not appear bulky when the pockets are utilized. This has quickly become my favorite layer, and has been perfect for this (unfortunately mild) winter season in Washington. I have yet to take it into temperatures below ~39 degrees F, but being that I run warm, I have a feeling it will be a great three-season layer.

Great quality, odd sizing


I originally bought a medium, but had to return it because the shoulders were too narrow and I could not lift my arms in front of me. I got the large and it fits great except the arms are really long. Aside from the funky fit I am very pleased with the product! It's pretty close to waterproof and Kees me very warm at temperatures around 25 F with wind. And it looks great! The hood is amazing and actually stays on my head unlike other jackets I wear. I would reccomend trying thenjacket on before buying it.

Bummed that this jacket didn't work for me


I really wanted to love this jacket but ended up returning it. I loved the matte material and that this company's logo isn't obnoxious like most others. Loved the pockets and the sleek profile. The cut looked great and the insulation was warm, but despite the "stretchy" fabric description, I felt like the material wasn't stretchy at all. The shoulders were tight for me. I do not have broad shoulders and I'm fairly petite, so getting a larger size would have looked ill-fitting. The other deal-breaker for me was the oversized hood. I suppose it's great if you need to wear a helmet under the jacket, but that was a feature I didn't need nor was made aware of in the description. Yes, the hood is "adjustable", however, unlike the sample photos, the actual hood in its folded down position is rather sloppy and very unflattering.



Best Jacket Ever


This jacket is so warm and looks great. I use it in the snow, on the river, in wet forests, and dry deserts.



Excellent coat


I wear this coat to walk my dog. It is warm and blocks the wind. Lots of pockets and nice hood

Cute and practical


I love it! It's light weight but still warm. And it's super cute--everyone in my office said it looks great!
