I asked the Backcountry Gearhead about this, and she did warn me...it'll be warm. She did not lie! It is warmer than I anticipated, but I really like this vest. In winter, I wear a vest almost every day, either a light windbreaker style (like the Houdini) or a polar fleece style. This is basically that combined - sort of hard shell outside and fleece inside. Probably a bit much for inside but awesome on the stream.
The hickory is a really unique color too.
