I love this Cape! Living in the wintery Midwest, I have used it in cold conditions and it does keep the cold off up to about 25 degrees. It is light weight but the wind does not penetrate. It works as a Cape, blanket in car or plane, pillow when rolled up, and packs well. Plus arms are free when driving. Thumbs up!
It's a beautiful color, and the fabric feels very nice...but, alas, the other reviews are right. It's very thin. If you hold it up to the light, you can see through it quite readily. It isn't really a $250 article of clothing. I shall be keeping mine anyway, because it's fine for here in So Cal...but I have a hard time imagining it as a real cold weather covering. I might add a lining to give it more substance.
