Not for high wind

I really wanted to love this jacket. The purple color was just terrific and the STP price was really a bargain. However, the fabric was wrinkly and low, quality seeming. There wasn't much loft in the padding, which of course makes for easy travel packing, but it wore like a cheap t-shirt. I stepped outside momentarily to test in unusually high winds we were having (20 mph gusts) and while the jacket performed well as a windbreaker I still was cold. I can see myself needed to bulk up to have the warmth provided by a wool jacket, but that defeats the purpose of this technical jacket. Finally, the jacket was not designed with a whole lot of female anatomy in mind it seems, and on my body at least, just hung poorly....again giving the appearance of wearing a cheap, oversized t-shirt. With great sadness, I'm sending this back.
