Fantastic

I have to be honest, I was a little skeptical that such a seemingly lightweight jacket would keep me warm in the snow! But couldn't be happier with this jacket. My husband (an expert skier) got me this jacket for Christmas and took me on my first skiing trip this weekend. To my surprise, I was very comfortable in 20-30 degree weather with just a regular T-shirt and a thin, long-sleeved cotton shirt layered under this jacket! Colder than that I'm sure a fleece would make it perfectly comfortable. :)

As for fit, I'm about 5'3", 97 lbs, and the XS is perfect. The adjustable drawcords at the bottom and in the hood are super handy. Love how it's wonderfully wind and water proof but still breathes. By the way, also totally cute on! Haha.

The ONLY potential negative for me was that the thumb holes - a feature I was really excited about - are too small and couldn't use them because they were cramping my thumbs pretty badly. My fingers are very small (I have get my rings in children's sizes), so this was surprising. Not a problem though, as I was wearing long-wristed gloves, just too bad because it's a cool feature.

Overall fantastic jacket, worth every penny! Got the matching MH insulated snowpants too. Can't wait to use them again!
