I gave the value rating a 5 because I got the cape at 60% off and at that price, it is a good deal! I have the black/gray and had to return a medium for a small because it runs large. Since it is July, I have not worn the cape yet but am looking forward to its being a staple in my wardrobe. It looks expensive and the smaller fit is perfect. I am 5/5 and 140 lbs.
