Finally, a jacket that I actually want to ride in! Planks is making women's outerwear that is functional and stylish. The graduate has a long and athletic fit with no cinch at the waist. I prefer a loose fit, being tiny (5' 3") a medium jacket hits at mid thigh and gives me enough room in the body to feel comfortable but not bulky. The waterproofing is 8,000mm which is great for your average day but if you come from wet weather consider something with a little more waterproofing. There's no armpit vents which didn't bother me in the cold but, open coat swag optional on warmer days. The Graduate is versatile, sleek design with simple black buttons and solid colors feels fashionable on the streets and the mountain. I would recommend this jacket to any of my friends.
