First of all, it's very soft and not itchy - I'm very sensitive to materials and how they feel. It's one of those ponchos that you want to wear all the time cause it's cute and is warm like a blanket. Beautiful colors too. I'd say the only down side for me is that it isn't as long in the back as I would have liked it. I live in Texas so I use it as my coat on winter days. I give it a 10!!
