The Icebreaker Women's Gust Jacket is a lightweight softshell jacket for various hiking conditions. The 100% polyester on the outside is water-resistant to repel a light rain or snow, while the middle layer is a polyurethane membrane, providing 100% windproof protection. The inside features merino wool, for a soft feel against your skin and natural wicking properties. At the side and back panels you will find a blend of merino, nylon, and elastane, which provides additional venting as well as plenty of stretch so you can move with ease. The regular fit leaves room for a layer underneath, falling at the hip with a drop tail hem to ensure your lower back is protected from drafts. A cinch cord at the hem seals the jacket in closer to your body for tailoring warmth to your preference. The chest pocket is prepped to carry your tunes, with a headphone cord hole on the interior. The zippered hand pockets secure glove liners when not in use, or a wallet when out running errands.

So-So Shell (itchy on the inside)I was really excited to get this jacket. I used it for my morning bike commute. It's pretty warm for spring and fall biking and even held up pretty well in the rain (I got wet but it kept me pretty warm in 2 degree weather). But my biggest complaint about the jack is that it's itchy on the inside. I have a lot of merino and this isn't usually a problem like it is with other wool. For such an expensive jacket I would expect it to be more comfortable.
I'm also a little bit disappointed in the colour. I ordered the blue version which doesn't seem to be available any more and the picture shows it as a less saturated greeny blue, but the actual colour is very bright and definitely blue (no green undertones).

Great and fashionable JacketI love this shell, my husband picked it out for me - it fits great and looks great too. We bought the magenta version. While it says it is for running and cycling, its nice enough just to wear around town. The quality of icebreaker can't be beat.

Gorgerous color! and super comfy!I adore this jacket, and I was immediately in love with the color, it is even brighter in person. The fit is true to size and feels like a second skin over a T shirt or a hoodie; and it fits neatly layered underneath another coat. The back is soft wool that is breathable and warm.The best part is hair doesn't stick to it. Icebreaker items are always great quality.
