I like to have pockets to the ready when I fly. I also like to have an extra light layer for airports/airplanes because I often get chilled with the air conditioning. For the past few years I've been wearing an old chambray worksheet that is the right weight and length and has one breast pocket. But it is not smart looking, just practical. I saw this jacket on sale and when I read the review that said that it was too light and not a warm enough jacket, I thought I would try it. I was still concerned about all the reviews indicating that it was a snug fit. So I ordered it with fingers crossed. The weight of the fabric is perfect for my needs. It is light but it still offers some protection from rain (except there's no hood!) The olive color works for me. Lots of pockets, just what I wanted. I've actually been wearing it for my morning bus commute lately as well. I bought a Large (my usual at EB) and it fits fine through the chest and shoulders. I wish this either was slightly more A-line or that it had a 2-way zipper. I wear a size 14 curvy pant and this zip up over my hips but it looks ridiculous, way too tight. But worn open it looks nice and is pretty fashionable. I can dress it up with scarves as the weather cools. Another win for me with Eddie Bauer. Thanks to everyone else who has provided comments!
