Says it will keep a breeze off of you.
Sounds like a nice jacket for going out to dinner here in the Pacific Northwest.
If I'm going to the mountains I want a jacket that will keep my insulation dry in a 70 mph deluge of freezing rain, and yes, I've been in one on top of Baker. What will do that? 3 layer gortex is the only thing I trust.
IMHO, buy a 3 layer goretex rain parka and a couple of THICK fleece jackets. If you really want to be warm, buy a down jacket also. Unless you're going where it's nasty, then a down jacket will get you killed so buy a down parka in that case.
Leave the DAS at home. No insulation will keep you warm when wet.
