I am so happy I randomly bought that jacket. I wear it in all activities: skiing, backpacking, walking, traveling, bopping around town... It is even water resistant! The material is smooth so it's great for layering. It is also easy to clean- stains come right out. The inner fleece is soft and warm.The side pockets are nice & deep. My favorite parts: thumb holes (always a plus) and a wide hood. On most hoodies, when the hood goes up, peripheral vision is non-existant. In this jacket, the hood is very wide so I can see, and it's also wide enough to fit a helmet underneath. The only downside is the sleeves are a little long, but I have short arms. I LOVE THIS JACKET!
