I guess I shouldn't say it's "cool" because that would be defeating the purpose of an insulated jacket. That said, the material is great, it's soft, and it's kept me dry on a mildly rainy day. But since it's been pretty warm, in the 50's, I can't say much for it's insulating properties. I don't think it's going to be very warm anyway. It has a thin insulation layer, nothing puffy-like at all. But it's got a great look for dicking around town, or for dicking around on the hill when you're SNOWBOARDING. Yes, I said SNOWBOARDING, not skiing. Skiers can use their own douchy ski companies, Foursquare is a snowboarder company.
Anyway 4/5 stars, because I knew it was going to be an inexpensive, lightweight jacket. It's not the greatest jacket in the world, but it's what it's supposed to be.
Also, I got the color Pine. I knew it was going to be green because of the word "PINE" in the color. So I wasn't shocked when I got the jacket. The color in the photo above is very, very inaccurate. It's a green jacket, closer to the Absynthe color in the Burton Poacher Jacket: http://www.dogfunk.com/burton-poacher-insulated-jacket-mens?cmp_id=&rrType=RecentHistoricalItems&rrProd=BUR3639. However, the Burton jacket is a more feminine green than the Foursquare one. The Foursquare one is for men, and Burton is for East Coast wanna-be's from NYC.
Wait, I'm from NYC.
And yes, I know Burton bought Foursquare. Shhh.
