    I have had the black one for over a year. I like it fine and I have never had any trouble with the zipper. It washes well, the cut is flattering, and the print is a good way...and it looks great with jeans. The weight is right for 50-30 degree days, which provides a lot of opportunity for wear in northern Iowa. I really like it.

    The jacket looks nice, but its zipper doesn't work at all! Sierra should have returned me ALL shipping expenses for this bad product, but it didn't!

    I love the print, but ended up giving it up to my daughter who wears a size small. It seemed to run a little small, and I wanted something I could fit at least a light weight sweatshirt or sweater underneath. The zippers also seem a little temperamental, hopefully they'll loosen up as my daughter wears it more often.

    I really like the looks of this jacket, and it almost worked for me, but something about the fit wasn't so flattering, so I sent it back. It seemed to roomy around the middle and kind of poufed out in the back. I'm 5'7" and about 128 lbs. I ordered a medium. I don't know, maybe because I'm kind of small-chested, it affected the rest of the fit? Anyway, it just didn't look flattering from the side and back. I didn't order a small because then the arms/shoulders would have probably been too small. Sad!

    Love the print on the black jacket since I am rough on coats and don't like to wash them every week for each little spot that gets on it. Jacket has a light insulation with a fleece inside the body, smooth taffeta in arms and fits as it should for a Medium, 5' 9", 130 lbs. You can layer a sweater under it too. The zipper is not heavy YKK though and doesn't always line up to the start so you have to take an extra minute, or a couple tries, to make sure it catches, and might not last as long as the jacket....we will see. Also this does not have a wind flap under or over the zipper, nor is it a heavy, waterproof, windproof, mid winter jacket. Very nice for blustery transitional seasons in the upper mid west but not a ski or snow sports sub freezing jacket. I like to use it with a black scarf, sweater, hat, jeans, and boots for running errands and casual events.

    The jacket is the perfect length - covers my hips. It is light weight so you need to wear a sweater underneath it in colder temperatures. My shoulders are narrow so it was a good fit. If you have larger shoulders, this jacket might be too restrictive in the arms for you.

    This jacket just isn't right for me I guess, and that is a shame because the style is really cute. The princess seams and yoke in the back give it a nice shape, but unfortunately it just doesn't fit my middle-aged body correctly. I am 5'4" and wear a size 10 in almost everything, more rarely a size 8. I ordered the L as it is 10-12 and I did not want a tight jacket. Well the jacket is just a hair too tight in the midsection to imagine wearing it over a sweater. I will see if my daughter (size 12, but shaped differently than me and slimmer in the midriff) wants it, otherwise it will have to go back. Other notes: the sleeves are long but they roll up nicely. Overall the jacket was puffier and a little bulkier than I expected, due to the heavy fleece lining. It is extremely lightweight though. I have another Aventura jacket which I love and I thought it was getting a little worn looking so I was hoping to replace or supplement it. Tried it on after this one and decided it doesn't look so bad after all! I would still recommend trying this jacket unless you have a short waist with any kind of chub above the waistline.

    During autumn, the heavy winter jacket is too warm, and the windbreaker from summer is not warm enough. I end up wearing sweaters underneath the windbreaker. With this jacket, I do not wear the extra sweater. I wear it for work, and it is not bulky.
