I purchased this jacket to layer for hiking in cooler weather and it's great. I currently live in Phoenix, so in the city there's not much need for it. However, hiking in northern AZ (or anywhere with winter haha), it will keep you warm to about 40 degrees with a light base layer. However, it is not water or windproof- even a moderate amount of wind is noticeable in this jacket. The sleeves are great, as it's rare to find longer sleeves on women's jackets. The instructions say that you can machine dry this, but I recommend just hang drying to make the jacket remain soft for longer.
Got this jacket to replace my girlfriends faded North Face jacket. She LOVES how soft the monkey fur is on the jacket. Everything fit her perfectly but the sleeves were a little long on her but that didn't bother her. The jacket is super lightweight and she stays warm in it and that's what counts. Another good job on my part and Moosejaw's!
I have this jacket for myself and decided to order it for my mom. This jacket is so warm and comfortable. Keeps the air out and the warmth in. I ordered a medium and mine fits perfect but my mom has the large and the sleeves are a little long for a women's coat. Overall great coat!
I was really wanting a Mountain Hardwear jacket for the winter. After searching non-stop I found the Tradewinds Grey jacket and fell in love! I found it on a different website for cheaper, but Moosejaw had such great reviews I really wanted to purchase it from them. So I emailed about the price match deal and to my surprise, they really follow through. I got my jacket within 3 business days even using the free standard shipping! I completely recommend moosejaw to anyone. I am so happy with my purchase :D
