As far as looks go, this jacket is awesome! i have it in the red. The sad part is that it doesn't hold up on the rocky mountain ski slopes, the brisk air cuts right through the fabric. The chairlift especially. The jacket being rather loose in the waist and hips just adds the to cold air retention, thank god for the powder skirt to keep a bit of that cold air out. However, if you wear this for errands or on average days going here and there, its truly lovely. Hope this helps!
