What a cute puffer, the blue is gorgeous. I also bought the black for my teenage daughter. Both have a beautiful sheen and stand out compared to other puffers. I also like the hood which is substantial and stays on your head when it's raining here. The blue spoke to me as I have been eyeing other silver puffers but were too bold for me. It's warm enough for the winters in the NW and water resistant. That said, the stitching in the pockets is flawed, irregular. I bought the same jacket from Nordstroms and returned due to same issue and so when they were sold out went directly to Sam Edelman. To my surprise, the same issue. I am going to keep because was able to get on sale around $100.
