I bought this for a warm, wind-reducing vest that would keep warm in a drizzle, unlike down. I love the vest and the idea, but there are 2 negatives that bring the rating down. First, there's not much wool stuffing in the vest. There is also very little overlap at the front snaps. These make it OK for a cool day but not enough for a truly cold day. Second, there is a large, generous inside pocket BUT it is so wide that it falls open. If you put a big thing in it, like a map, you may lose it. It needs a Velcro tab on the top middle of the pocket. These may be trivial to you if you don't live in a very cold place or don't carry the size stuff that would go in the pocket. It is true to size, the color is lovely and it has nice tailoring touches.I did keep this vest and have worn it several times already.
