This jacket is an excellent value. I needed a light but warm jacket to go on vacation from Michigan to Florida recently and not feel or look too much like a "northerner" and yet have something match the clothing I was wearing which was light weight and lighter colored for Florida and this jacket fit the bill perfectly. Two features that are not pointed out in the description and are definite pluses is that there is an inside left breast pocket pocket deep enough to hold your boarding passes and car rental papers and the 2 outside pockets are zippered which make this jacket an excellent travel jacket for me as I have had things fall out of my pockets in the past. The high collar with a zipper that goes all the way up to keep your neck warm was excellent. If you may not need this item until the future I suggest you buy it now.
