I loved this jacket, but my 14 yr old didn't. She didn't like the feel of the outer fabric--it's a bit softer than usual--doesn't seem like it would be waterprook, but it says it is, so I'm sure it's fine. She also said it didn't have enough pockets. Her current one (Marmot) has inside pockets on both sides, upper and lower, and regular hand pockets, chest outer pockets, and pockets on the top of the arms on each sleeve. She said she liked the look of it, but wanted the functionality of her old Marmot instead.
