Amsterdam: while biking in sunny but chilly weather, I appreciated the tall collar to keep my neck warm and that I could unzip the jacket from the bottom for pedaling.
Paris: felt stylish walking around the city in this coat. Weather was downright cold, so I added a think down jacket under and was cozy.
London: lots of rain, added a hat and went on my way. Jacket kept me dry.
Caught the flu while on the road: pulled the coat over me as an added layer in my chilly hotel room. Wore it like a blanket all day.
