This jacket is windproof, waterproof and extremely warm without being 'sweaty'. The size is true with a good cut which is really flattering; no need to look a mess even when walking the dog! The main pockets have a button down opening, which is great for storing things you don't want to fall out, and the side access to them is really helpful as you can keep tissues in there and access easily without taking your gloves off. The upper side pockets are lined with soft material, so you can tuck your hands in there to keep warm if you aren't wearing gloves. I'm really, really pleased with it, it's weighty enough not to have to have too many layers on underneath, but not to the extent that it's cumbersome; a well thought-out jacket.
I'm trying to think of some downsides, but genuinely can't. It's a great purchase and worth the expense - I'm not sending it back anytime soon!
