Great Lightweight Layering Jacket
Verified Buyer Reviewed by KJ from Pacific NW on Friday, March 10, 2017
Love the inside chest side zip pocket to hold my phone or glasses and love the thumb loops too. Warning for long armed women... I am 5'3" with short arms and do not find the sleeves to be too long but just right (often times too long of sleeves are a problem for me but not with this jacket). It's easy to launder, does not wrinkle and seems to be holding up nicely, meaning, no pilling or snags. I wore it everyday during an unseasonably chilly weeklong stay in LA. My only caution would be to those who dislike material around or next to their neck and chin. This jacket is made in such a way that even when it is unzipped the collar is stiff enough so that it will not lay down onto the shoulder area but remains upright and brushes against the chin. This may be a deal breaker for some. The upshot is that the jacket's stiffness yet stretchiness keeps it firmly in place around the butt and the gut area so that it does not ride up and create a bunching effect around the middle. Translation, I do not have to be constantly pulling it down to put it back in its proper place. I do not find the wool to be itchy but very warm and comfortable. Looking forward to using this jacket as a layer for spring hiking too.
