looks very nice & feels warm and cosy

Wow, finally! While I'd been shopping for *ages* it seems for a sort of transitional work / barn jacket. Coming up with nil in my price range, and then this appeared as an item after a serious search on STP. It is cozy & warm, with all natural fibres. It's all wool and organic cotton, so it doesn't have that scratchy plastic-y feel and sound that you get with so many of those high-tech synthetics. Might get it Scotch-guarded, as I really want something that will stay weather-resistant.

The one thing I wish it had was either a two-way zipper or maybe vented side zips, for more mobility and easier access to pants pockets or whatever. If you have hips or a booty--which I do not--this is probably *not* a good fit for you. It's hard for me to find outerwear that I'm not swimming in. The XS would have been too close a fit. Sleeves are a tad long, but that's fine for a little extra coverage. I am 5'3" and 110 lbs., and typically I wear an XS, size 2 or 4. So far, I've been very pleased with other Icebreaker products, although they can run on the wee tiny side, even for me.

Even on sale, it was a bit pricey for me, but it feels & looks so good--it's a keeper. The original MSRP would have been way out of my league (somewhere around $400). Still, what a deal I got here on this jacket!! It's still selling for $250-300 elsewhere in late March 2016.
