I think I'm happy with it, but it's impossible to know for sure until I wear it for more than five minutes.
We've been having April weather in May. Cool, sometimes cold, and cloudy and wet.
According to AccuWeather, it's supposed to warm up tomorrow. If it actually happens I plan on wearing this to granddaughter Kimmy's choir concert tomorrow evening.
If it doesn't warm up, I'll save the wear test for another day.
