everyting I expected and more
Exactly what I was looking for. It's just a shell so don't think you're gonna wear this thing by it self in anything less than freezing conditions, but thats exactly where it excells. I took it out with a base layer and fleese hoody and was warm in neg 45 windchill. This baby shuts the wind out entirely! only down side, it's hard to zip it all the way up with a helmet on.
