The Solano is a great everyday piece for Spring and Fall weather. The Windstopper component does it's job in light winds around town. The face fabric has a decent amount a rain protection to it. The brushed inside is indeed comfy and lightweight. Not too warm, not too cold. Bottom line: I wouldn't rely on this piece for any sort of technical use, but I love it for an everyday cool season jacket - which is the Solano's intended purpose.
