Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect! This jacket it perfect. I wear it often. It is warm, but not too warm. It's lightweight, the hood fits nicely, it has plenty of pocket space, and it's comfy. March 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable and versatile This little jacket has many different capabilities! It can be a liner under a shell, an outside coat or an indoor sweatshirt. It's so comfortable and warm! I live in Chicago and can see wearing this 9 months of the year! I love the lines of the sleeves and the taper at the waist. It looks good and feels good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by keeps me warm! Light weight and thin but suprisingly it is very warm. I wore this jacket with jeans during cold weather and realised that my body was warm but not my legs. I am usually a size XS/S i went ahead with the XS and it fits perfectly with a little bit of room to fit thick undergarment inside. February 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Jacket! I love this jacket! The quality is great and it repels water very well. The fleece on the inside keeps you nice and warm on a cold/wet day. The hood also fits a little more on the snug side (in a good way), which keeps it from blowing off when a gust of wind comes along. I'm going to get this is another color or two! February 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great I love my new jacket! The only problem is that It started to snag on the pocket. Otherwise I love it. I got a size bigger, but should have got large. December 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pretty Good Jacket The jacket is true to size. I do like how lightweight it is and is able to provide warmth. This jacket is best for the fall, in and out of places, but not for any weather below 35 degrees. December 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Blossom Pink is cute I ordered a size S in blossom pink color. I'm petite 5'2 and 110lbs. This jacket runs true to size. Not too long not too small. Fits nicely with some space to move around easy. Would be better if it is cheaper. Haha. September 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great jacket Love the fleeces and wear them all the time. This one is fleece on the inside still but a little warmer. Great jacket September 19, 2014
