The jacket is comfortable, breathes, and sheds water. Lots of pockets, including double slanted hand pockets on each side, both with linng - one set has zipper closures and the other has snaps. There are two internal pockets, both with snap closures. This is one of the most comfortable jackets I have ever owned and is warm enough for most cold weather days in the DC area, especially with a couple of thin layers. I also like its length at just below hip level. At the sale price I received, it is an excellent value for a quality jacket.
