I'm way into this jacket. I have been back in NYC for 5 years (read: WINTERS) and you have to have different coat levels for all the different weather conditions. The last piece to my closet was a jacket for Cold + Wet - the days of the beloved "wintry mix" or rain and 40ish degrees. Well, this jacket is a winner! So far, it's been keeping me super cozy and dry. And it's cute too! The hood stays on good. An excellent purchase!
