I originally bought this to wear skiing as I get quite warm wearing a thicker ski jacket, but since then I have worn it on a regular basis outside in the spring time.
The jacket is comfortable, a nice colour, fits really well, and the zips/pockets are thoughtfully placed and easily accessible. It was perfect to ski in, and even held up when there was fairly heavy rain - I was initially worried about this and the softshell material definitely looked wetter and became slightly heavier, but none of the water seeped through, even at the more ventilated underside.
The only problem I have with the jacket is that the hood is too large, and without a large hat/helmet, it comes quite far over my forehead to the point where it is not easy to look up. The adjusters on the hood are useful for tightening it around the head/helmet but not so much for pulling it back and making it a bit 'shorter'.
Overall a fantastic product that I intend to wear as a daily jacket and for any adventures I take!
