An amazing jacket for the money, even compared to some other much more expensive brands. It has enough waterproof resistance to jeep you dry on a light storm, any more than that you will need another shell. The fleece lining gives you a enough warm protection for a fall day. Add a thermal shirt and you are good for the winter. Add a fleece jacket and you might be ready for the Arctic. The stow away hoodie is great for getting things out of the way, and it's large enough to keep a cap or even a helmet under it. And the wrist straps keep all the warm inside the jacket.
It has enough pockets to not need a backpack. But who would ever use them all at once? Still, even tho they are great, I have to admit, things get lost in them. that might become frustrating. But if you are thinking of getting this jacket, GET IT!!!
Just too many pockets
