It surprised me with how well it retains heat. Here's my key 'likes' - Retains heat, I stayed warm on my morning dog walk in 40ish degree weather in WA state, so hands down this is a very cozy jacket. - Elastic cuff for the sleeves easily stretches over a large watch, my garmin fenix 6X - The 'Engineered elastic waistband' is noice, it hugs me - The interior of the jacket actually has two pockets opposite of the exterior hand pocket, awesome spot for gloves - VERY light jacket I don't have any legitimate dislikes of this jacket, it's designed purpose does hit my needs but there's a few things that might make it better: - I wish the hand pockets had zippers, just so i could secure stuff in them. - I really wish there were elbow patches, similar to the material on the shoulders Cheers!
Love this, classic style style updated. Feels great on cold days climbing, surfing, and hiking! Been wearing it as an outer layer and also under a hardshell. Works great.
