Easily the best-looking down jacket I've owned and quite warm, although somewhat limited in that area by its length. The jacket feels even shorter than it actually is--I find myself pulling it down every so often because it seems like it's riding up on my hips. The hood is toasty, and the sleeves are almost air-tight--no wind gets in anywhere. Very, very snug, which also greatly benefits the jacket's silhouette. And the outer shell is just so much more attractive than the ubiquitous hand-grenade style. You can't help but look good in it. On the down side (pun intended), the pockets are small and shallow. I have to fold my gloves to get them in there and I can't even get my hands in up to my wrists. Also, the zipper is on the wrong side. I've been zipping my jackets up one way for fifty years. Maybe I'm unusually uncoordinated, but I still don't like taking so long to get the stupid zipper lined up. Very, very annoying. Overall, five stars for looks, four-and-a- half for warmth, but CG has some work to do on the ergonomics.
