I tried to buy this in Omaha, then again in Jackson where I hoped to wear it. They did not have the size I wanted, so I had then send it to my home from another store. It would have come in handy to wear over my jacket during our YNP visit in September where it snowed each day. I bought the XL so I can wear it over layers and it will work fine for that. I just washed it and threw it in a low dryer for a few minutes before hanging it to completely dry. This has a very soft, warm lining that looks like sheared sheepskin. I really like the zippered pockets and collar that can lay flat if desired.
