I chose Shark in a size 8. There getting the rest of the colors later on so I’ll have to see if Shark is still my first choice or if I would like Coal better. What do you think of this color?? There is no hood on the jacket but that’s not a deal breaker for me as I always take hoods off. The size I think is perfect for wearing a Stride underneath but I can’t comfortably put a scuba or remix under it. If your a size 2, the range is 4-12 but I think you could pull off the size 4. It bells out a bit more at the bottom in the size up which is pretty too and you would be able to wear a scuba underneath. This jacket is a zip up and button up, double breasted design. The buttons from the collar down are snaps and they seem pretty sturdy. It looks good all the way open if you don’t mind seeing the snaps and it also looks good just with the big chunky buttons done up. You can also flip the collar up to cover your neck. Over all I think this is a perfect jacket for Vancouver as it’s warm (fleece lined like the Everyday Jacket) and water and wind proof. More to post in a little bit. I have a scoop on a few other items.
