This jacket is a rain jacket with a quilted lining and a hood, perfect for wet and cold weather, something we get in Pennsylvania almost all year round. The silhouette is a-line and fits my pear-shaped figure in a very flattering way. It's made of quality fabric and has attractive gold metal trim. I originally ordered this from Herbergers and then found it for much less at another store so I returned the Herbergers jacket. Herbergers seemed to be confused about their own return policy, and the contact email address didn't work, but eventually I was able to ship it back. I highly recommend the jacket for its appearance, fit and functionality.
