This is a really nice jacket and, as described, is great for repelling rain. But it's definitely a rain coat. It has no lining so the warmth you get is from what you wear underneath. I, like another reviewer, find it snug in the hips (I'm 5'3", average build with pear-shape and normally wear a M) so I wear it with my yoga pants. It's almost too snug for my jeans. I bought the dark green and love the colour. It is well constructed and of good quality but if you're "hippy", you may want to size up or find something else.
