Cute, impracticalI’m obsessed with how flattering this jacket is. That’s 100% why I bought it. It seems quite durable and while I haven’t worn it in inclement weather, I feel confident it would protect me on a shorter hike. I wouldn’t grab it below 60 degrees, or if weather called for heavy rain though. It’s more of an “autumn Instagram” jacket.
My main issue is how small it runs in the chest and arms. It fits comfortably elsewhere, including the hips which is the typical downfall of women’s jackets. Because they’re made by men. This one squishes my boobs a bit and I don’t have full punching range. That may sound ridiculous, but it’s tight in the shoulders when I bend down to tie my shoes. A size up was the same, but looked frumpy...so these are made for small chested, non broad shouldered girls.
I have it in burnt orange though and I seriously love the color and fit (when standing still) enough that I do grab it for car rides. Definitely not long hikes.
Oh, and the hood is actually decent which is another issue many coats have. It’s not packable either- pretty heavy.
