While I rarely have the confidence to wear this out and brag about being 'that guy', the guy that wears his outdoor gear to show off that he does outdoorsy stuff, I do sometimes still cause it is such a great coat. Great to throw on to go to the store or to a friends. It is however in outdoor activities this jacket excels. I've worn it on a 12 mile run during which the sun was out and the temp changed maybe 20 degrees throughout and it kept me warm and then didn't get too hot. I've worn it on overnight backpacking trips for which the same temp regulation occured as well. It is very versatile and keeps your temp regulated well.

I am 6'2, 205lbs (lean @ 10% body fat) and this jacket fits me 100% perfectly. It is thin and lightweight. It is extremely flexible, and warm for it's thickness. I have jackets anywhere from thin $50 windbreakers to $300 gortex skiing jackets. This jacket is a great mid-season jacket that is easy to throw on. It doesn't take up a ton of space in your office or in your closet. It can be folded up. It is warmer than a sweater in that it breaks wind and the material is woven much tighter. The zippers are well done with covers so wind doesn't seep through. There are holes to put your thumbs into that helps keep the sleeves below your knuckles, which if you spend a lot of time outside in late fall or early spring, can get chapped easily.
The #1 best thing about this jacket is how light weight it is, and how easy it is to move around in it with full flexibility.
Hope that helps.

Looks good. Highly visible for biking. Lightwweight. Like the longer sleeve/thumbhole feature and the reasonably tight collar that was better than other jackets I tried on. The thumbhole longer sleeve seems to help keep hands warm even without wearing gloves and comfortable. Need to wear coat over it below 40 or 50° depending on sun, wind, and what activity I'm doing.
