I love this jacket. I did extensive research looking for the ideal 3-layer gortex jacket that I could use on rainy days in Seattle and also for skiing. This jacket met all my technical needs and looks sharp! The fit is flattering for city use, but like all the jackets that I tried on this year, the form has gotten more fitted. I need something that I can wear over a down jacket or a soft shell. For that reason I opted for one size larger, which loses a little of the sleek profile, but will function better. I get compliments every time I wear this jacket and really love it.. The construction is durable and thoughtful. Pockets and pit-zips are well placed. The hood is large and adjustable and able to accommodate a helmet. The only feature I wish it had was a drawstring in the pockets. It can be adjusted at the neck and waist.
