This jacket does what it says, stops the wind. If you're looking for it to keep you warm, keep looking. In cold weather I throw a thermal on underneath and I'm set to jet. I love the coat due to it's fit (modern/slim) and of course the color. Everybody always rocks the black The North Face gear, it's nice to stand out.
Overall, I really like this jacket. The price is a little high but if you want the name brand The North Face, you gotta pay. And since most people wouldn't pay that for this jacket, less people will have it. Get my drift? I also wear it under my snowboard coat. Hope this helps someone with their buying decision.
