I was looking for a stylish weather resistant jacket and that is exactly what I received. Although a tad bit stiff at first, after a few wears this jacket seriously breaks right into its description. This is one of those jackets that just gets better with time, the more you wear it, the better it feels. The outside has somewhat of a shimmer (depending on the color) and the inside is extremely soft which feels nice when just wearing a t-shirt underneath. I love the colored zipper accents, they just add that little extra to this awesome product. I wear this to work, out on the town, and holds up to any chilly outdoor activity. I am thoroughly pleased with my purchase. If you are looking for a visually pleasing jacket, that has all the features that you want (warm, weather resisting, pockets, feel and appeal, etc.) you will also be happy with this purchase.
