Overall, I like this jacket quite a bit. It's a beautiful deep purple color, and the pockets are lined for extra warmth. Also, the cut is flattering, especially since the back is a tad longer than the front. I do wish it was a little warmer (I would wear this jacket alone for 50 degree weather; definitely layer up if it's any colder), but it is just supposed to be a shell. I also ran one of the sleeves under the faucet for a minute, and the jacket remained completely dry afterwards, so it's definitely water resistant. However, there are some small issues with it. First, the jacket itself is quite stiff, maybe because of the waterproof coating? Regardless, the collar doesn't like to stay down, but I'm hoping that will resolve itself after washing it. Second, the sleeve openings are ruched, so they're quite tight, which might be uncomfortable for some. Lastly, this wasn't an issue for me, but I could see fuller-hipped ladies having a problem with this jacket since the hip opening is rather slim and there isn't much give at all in the fabric.
