While the jacket offers cozy warmth, fantastic wind proofing, and water resistance, the ventilation is poor, and the fit can be a bit boxy in the torso but tight in the arms. Still, people love the style and ease of use for walks on cold days and going into town, although this is not the best option for those needing a technical soft-shell for high-output activities.
