Although I own two of these jackets in Red and Black
because of the stylish design - I live in Southern California where it is a rare occasion when the weather even gets close to 50 degrees. In most instances, particularly at night it is necessary that I wear a wool sweater underneath for some degree of warmth. From my perspective, the Patagonia description was inaccurate to the extent where I even needed to use a water repellent to keep the rain from seeping through the jacket. My only reason for keeping these jackets is because I like them and I reside in a State where cooler weather and frequent rain is really not an issue.
