This is a wonderful jacket. Although I remained skeptical as to its warmth even after reading all the other reviews, I am a true believer after staying warm when wearing the Redpoint over a tee-shirt in breezy twenty-five-degree weather. It has unbelievable insulation given its size and weight, good wind protection in 10-15 mph winds, and water-repellant in anything but a downpour. While I purchased the jacket as a fleece-alternative for use in spring and fall, and as an insulating layer in winter, the Redpoint has replaced my winter jackets for all but the coldest days. It is a great jacket, great price and, unlike the Denali, not worn by every other person in the country.
