This is a pretty fantastic looking jacket. Not as cool as the non-hooded version, which has a great motorbike jacket vibe, but a good looking jacket none the less. I kinda feel like the guy from Assassins creed when I put up my hood. Really very badass. Technical aspects: Folds up into its own pocket (which has a headphone port), and it's super light weight, but stops a fair bit of wind, and sheds light to medium rain for a short period of time. And again, looks good. Don't have to much of a chance to wear it in cool weather, since I live in Singapore (32c all year round), but I do wear it into the freezing cinemas and it keeps me warm.
