I live in Michigan and this jacket is perfect for the cold weather granted you layer it with another sweatshirt underneath. Worn by itself it doesn't stand up to wind very well, but it was my first jacket I bought through Moosejaw and still my favorite. I own three north face jackets, but this is still my favorite because I like to layer up and it's a good anywhere jacket
I got the Windwall jacket just in time for the first Christmas Day snowstorm to hit Texas in a very long time. The wind was crazy but this jacket blocked it. I highly recommend buying this jacket to anyone!
