My daughter and I were setting on my porch when the coat was delivered. It was a nice 85 degrees with a gentle breeze.. She asked what the package is and I told her about the jacket and that I wanted to be prepared for the coming winter. She asked to see it and for me to try it on. I was kind of surprised about the weight of the jacket being heavier than I expected. Very comfortable and thought it would fit the bill particularly since I couldn't feel the breeze. As I went to take the jacket off, that breeze gave me a chill. Now this was a very warm breeze. I have no doubt this will serve the purpose come winter when we get down to 8. Love the feel and the material.
