Seriously, since I've worn this jacket, I've gotten at least 6 comments about it. I love this jacket. Its got a great style and cut to it (although it is a tiny bit snug on my hips...I have big hips). The flap over the front secures with velcro which I assume will hold strong. I love the material of this jacket, its soft and quiet, not crinckley and loud like other jacket materials are. I wear an 8 or medium on top and got a medium jacket so this jacket does run true to size. Its super warm, has a generous size hood, and wrist gaiters!
