The pockets look bulky when filled and you can't layer well unless you order up a size! It's cut snug to be flattering. The vents under the arms allow you to adjust your warmth, its perfect for all weather. I thought the mahagony would be too brown, but its got a hint of merlot in there for it to still be girlie. I've taken it to Colorado and New York in all temps, as long as you layer when you need to you're good to go!
