Good soft shell jacket. Bought it on sale at REI and put it on with a light shirt and turtle neck in a freezing wind (34F and 12' and 15 mph wind) Was actually warmer than my duty jacket.
The sleeves may be a bit tight but I think I can layer under or over it.
PROS - Comfy has a chest pocket, and two hand pockets (more than enough to lose stuff in).
The exterior cleans up pretty good. I am going to try this in the cold on a hike this weekend.
Here's what other sites are saying:
The REI Neo is a value-oriented soft-shell with great urban styling. Whether your are hiking to the dog park or to the local viewpoint, it will keep you warm, shed the weather and wear comfortably. 4-way stretch fabric is soft yet durable, and with a Durable Water Repellent finish, Neo resists moderate rain and wind while allowing breathability; windproof to 45 mph. Brushed fleece laminated interior feels great on cool days. Soft, warm tricot-lined collar; chinguard protects skin from zipper abrasion. Drawcord hem, adjustable cuffs and front-zip windflap seal out cold. Zip chest pocket (with cord port) and zip hand pockets plus mesh drop-in pockets inside provide ample storage. Neo has a classic fit for easy wearing.
