I could probably never hate this jacket, since it's my favorite color. But it's also functionally pretty damn awesome. Cool thumb holes that help keep my hands warm when I'm not wearing gloves, powder skirt that will attach to my DC pants. It's a little warmer than the DC Respect, and doesn't have pit vents (which the Respect does). Doesn't bother me since I generally run cold rather than warm. My boyfriend kept telling me how cute I looked in it, always a plus. The exterior has a very different texture than I'm used to and I'm curious to see how it'll hold up to serious rain, but since it has the same waterproof rating as my last jacket, I'm pretty hopeful. The fit is so nice, I love this coat!
