"Initially surprised that the jacket was as lightweight and the exterior as soft feeling as I expected. I was expecting a heavy coat with a hardshell type material. Jacket is very warm and comfortable though so the down insulation material works quite well. Only used in in very light rain so cannot comment on how waterproof it actually is. Hopefully it'll be good! Only issue with the coat is the white fluff and feathers from the insulation poke through the stitching sometimes. "
