This jacket is one of the greatest jackets ever made. I bought one for my husband for Christmas. We live in a Minnesota and it was a little light for the below zero temps, but my husband wore it anyway. I kept borrowing it so often that I bought one too. Then we bought one for my dad. My dad uses his for his weeklong Canadian fishing trips. It is super lightweight and keeps you warm like you're in a sleeping bag. I wore mine all through the spring for outdoor jaunts with the dog. My husband has worn it for hockey, broomball, etc. The only drawback is that it doesn't have any pitzips for super sweaty sports like hockey. I've used it skiing as well, for days that are a little warmer.
