This is my second Gotham jacket. I traded my other to a natural horsemanship student from England who fell in love with my first one. She wore it skiing on a Montana ski slope on New Year's Eve and was the only one who was warm. The fur around the hood keeps our faces from freezing in our below zero winters. Anyway, she returned from the restroom and a strange girl was trying it on and she also loved it! I love my new lavender color and wear it on the cold winter days in Montana, feeding horses or photographing and videoing the natural horsemanship students playing with their horses in the snow. I highly recommend it, its both functional and fashionable!!
