When I first bought this coat, I assumed that because of its flyweight I would have to layer my fleece jacket underneath when it is cold. That has not been the case. This jacket stands up to winds even with just short sleeves underneath, and it stuffs easily into my small locker at work. I have also stuffed it easily into a pack. It's a perfect jacket for light-to moderate outdoor activities, but would probably be too warm for backpacking, snowshoeing or skiing. As for an around-town coat though, it can't be beat.

Marmot Rose Sweater: Distinctly feminine and elegant synthetic warmth that won't let you down in the backcountry or in town. Marmot Rose Sweater Features: DriClime lined pockets DriClime lined collar Velcro/Lycra combination cuffs Elastic draw cord hem Materials: Shell: nylon Lining: polyester Insulation: Synthetic
Quilted stitching is totally played out, so Marmot got all artsy and gave the Rose Sweater a rose-shaped pattern (bet you never saw that coming) that's sure to turn heads. This jacket still packs the same synthetic insulation that you've come to love, and its low-profile fit won't make you look like you rolled yourself in bubble wrap. This jacket's looks may trick you into thinking it's just for wearing around town, but you could definitely take the Rose Sweater into the backcountry without worry.
