is this a warm enough jacket to wear in 30 degree weather playing with my children outside?
Yes if you buy it a little large and wear a hoodie or something warm under it. I live in Colorado and wear this year round.
Sorry, no it is not. I like the jacket, looks nice. It might be suitable for a cool fall day. You could wear a fleece underneath.
Well,this is a great jacket. I got one sz up so I could layer with it. I don't pay attention to what degree it is. I stand out in the morning cold here in the mtns. Of southwest Va. At an elementary school and help little kids out of their cars at 7 am. If I'm cold I put my fleece north face on under my apex! Just depends on the wind,sun, etc. I got an extra large even though I wear a large so I could layer under the apex. It is very comfortable,looks great and neat on even though it's a little large when I don't layer. I can wear it nearly year round here, chilly mornings,chilly nights. I go to goose down here for the few days it goes under 30 degrees. Even when you layer under it,it's real comfortable and form fitting.excellent jacket. I think it works in 30 degree weather.
It does serve as a good wind breaker, not sure about how warm it will keep you in 30 degree weather. I bought for my daughter who lives in Nasville, she wears it frequently to and from work over scrubs.
If you don't want to layer, be sure u've got a thicker top on, something like a sweater or sweatshirt. Otherwise, that would still be too cold for me! But otherwise, I LOVE my jacket!!!!
I think so- with some protection for your head obviously. GREAT jacket- very cool too.
Actually I would say no. But I have a low tolerance for the cold. If you don't and can layer this jacket with a sweater then you may be able to because this jacket is definately wind proof.
