This lightweight, soft jacket keeps out the wind. I am not a fan of bulky and large jackets so this jacket brings me through the spring, and fall - and sometimes into the winter. If it is cold outside I will pair it with a vest for the extra protection but it keeps my arms warm, and I am never cold. The neckline comes up high enough that wind is unable to come into the jacket, keepingyour body warm too.
It is versatile enough to be worn with jeans, or under a warmer jacket - or with track pants.
When washing this jacket I choose to have it dry cleaned - this is for one reason only - Every time that I wash something that is like a fleece material clothing it becomes worn only after a few washes. At a fleece that costs over two hundred dollars, I am unwilling to take that chance. I don't want to ruin the amazing quality of The North Flace Jacket.
