I received this softshell as a gift and I love it. It is great having a winter coat that I can still be active in. I can wear it anywhere I go and feel stylish. I can comfortably wear it without feeling bulky.
In the past, when I've gone skiing or participated in other winter activities, I've work bulky ski jackets that make movement uncomfortable. Sometimes to be more stylish and to increase mobility, I've work simply a fleece or a sweatshirt but was still cold. This jacket is the best of both worlds. It is sleek looking and provides the best in both warmth and comfort. It is truly quality that only North Face can offer. This jacket was my favorite Christmas gift.
