• Answer I bought this jacket for backpacking earlier this spring. Backpacking the Upper Peninsula of Michigan the first week of May, temps were anywhere from 40-60 during the day and this jacket with a shirt was more than warm enough. I loved it so much, I bought another for regular use. I wear it regularly during wisconsign winters walking my dogs; I've stayed completely comfortable in temps as low as 25. Definitely for being active, standing or sitting in the cold and it'seems more like a spring/fall coat, temps 40-50. There is absolutely no swooshing sound, it is very quiet.
