Price Paid: $47 (massive sale)
I love this jacket. Haven't had it too long, haven't tested it too thoroughly, but it is solid. The lining is super soft, and it seems as if it will keep me warm and guarded by the wind in all but monsoon-like conditions.
Super stylish to me, but I think that high performance gear is always sexy, your mileage may vary. Feels true to size, I bought a medium, I'm 5'10", 165 lbs. I recommend it for any activity short of mountaineering.
