Wife loves it
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
My wife had been checking this jacket out. When i saw it on sale a snagged it and scored some brownie points. Aside from the good looks, they have done a great job with the jacket. It's not the "most" waterproof, but does a great job and hasn't soaked through on her yet.
Like every girl I know, she gets chilly. The insulation is perfect for her; it's not too warm for spring days, and she can layer under it when the temp dips. Burton got it right on the details too. Lots of well placed pockets with space to hold everything and run headphones.
A worthy investment
Great material, great quality. Love the design. I thought I would be disappointed with the insulation quality due to the low bulk material, but I was, in fact, impressed with the level of warmth with a couple of layers, for a -15 temperature. Superbly lightweight to carry around. Love the pockets.
