I have actually been looking for this type of jacket for a while now and was so delighted to find it here, just in time before the cold weather of winter sets in. It is a fantastic jacket and keep me very warm with both layers. I have read the reviews of other customers prior to purchasing this jacket and some were mentioning about the hood which is not concealed as other jackets have them. My solution to this was simple, detach the hood and because it is not heavy or bulky, just fold it and put it in a inside pocket of the jacket, which then can be used when needed. Loved the jacket so much that a week later I bought one for my daughter (her size and colour).
