A great jacket for active women

I have been looking at and weighing buying one of these Smartwool hoodies for a long time. Just sorry I waited so long. This jacket offers lightweight warmth and protection from the cold. I love the knit insets for flexibility and range of motion. This also delivers warmth - wore it yesterday during a windy overcast day with temps in low 30's and was actually too warm once I got going (and I suffer from the cold, so this was a happy surprise). Great for hiking, too, or other outdoor activities. Flattering fit that accentuates curves in a good way. I got the medium - am 5'4", 125 lbs, 36B, and the fit couldn't be better. I've been wearing it with a single merino base layer underneath, but there's definitely room for additional layering. Like that it comes with 3 useful pockets that zip for security. Zipper garage is nice, too - no more chin snags. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is that the zipper snags when I zip it up - have to stop to pull the fabric away from the zipper teeth. You can't zip this fast - have to take it slowly. Other than that, considering the great discount I got on this jacket, I couldn't be happier. This will give me 3-season wear.
