I searched for quite a while before I landed on this jacket. I wanted something I could layer when out hiking around with my dog. The hoodie looks great - really love the colors and design. It's also not too heavy or too light, which is what I wanted. I usually wear another sweatshirt underneath. My only complaint is that the shoulders feel just a little off. I have fairly broad shoulders anyway but the way it's built makes it feel a little tight in the shoulders/back and I can "hulk out" of it a little bit when I reach my arms forward. Since walking is mostly an "arms down" activity it's not a huge problem but if I were doing something where I needed to raise my arms up a lot it probably wouldn't work for me. Overall though I do really like it and works for what I wanted it for.
