I just love everything about this jacket so much that I'm going to order another one in a different colour. The grape is beautiful, but it is so distinctive people can pick me out of a crowd. I've been wearing it solidly since I bought it and I just can't bear to go without it long enough to wash it! The jacket has quite a sleek fit, so although it is clearly an out-doorsy sort of jacket I don't feel silly wearing it over work gear on the way to the office. It also looks great with a pair of running tights - and is so breathable that it FEELS great to run in as well. I live in Wellington, New Zealand, which doesn't get that cold in winter but is infamous for its natural and man-made wind-tunnels, and its biting windchill. This keeps me warm and dry in horizontal rain! This jacket with a couple of merino tops it is all I'll need for the winter - and it's far more flattering than the giant down jackets everyone else is using to keep the wind out this season!
