After reading the reviews on this jacket i was fully prepared, even expecting, to only be able to use this as a winter jacket. I used it during the winter and was thrilled with how warm and waterproof it was. When spring rolled around I thought that i would go ahead and bring it on a hike. The day we went the tempature was around 75 so I removed the liner and headed off. Now the reviews i had read stated that this jacket was a little warm for spring however THIS IS NOT TRUE. Whoever says this jacket is only for winter they have obviously forgotten to remove the liner. It was perfect for spring and even the occasional rainy summer day. Excellent jacket and i recommend it to all.
