I'd like to start off by saying I love this jacket because it functions very well for what I was intending to use it for - a hiking jacket during the cooler mornings in the year.
The picture posted on the site is deceiving, though - this jacket is very light weight, I would compare it to the thinness of a wind breaker. The image makes it look as though it is slightly insulated, or as though it has a fleece inner lining, but that is not the case. This jacket is definitely one that needs many inner layers to be considered "warm".
This jacket is great if you want an extra water-resistant outer layer that is easy to remove and will not be a burden if needed to be carried throughout your day. It is great for moist morning hikes and/or runs that may require you to take it off once you begin to warm up.
For reference, I am 4"11, 112lbs., about a size XS in Women's clothing. The Girl's size L fit perfectly for me. It's fitted, but if needed, I am still able to fit a sweater or hoody as an insulating layer.
I would recommend this product.

This product is ok.. But it's not heavy like you would think from the pictures, so ts not really all tht warm! It's great for jogging though, the rain resistant cover makes it great for humidity and rain.... You just don't get the heavy and warm factor most people look for.
I do not recommend this product.
