(dah328 @ Jan. 18 2005,10:05) Thanks for the replies. Â It sounds like it's a worthwhile investment although I still think it looks a little odd to be wearing a cashmere overcoat on a rainy day. Â
How does the cashmere stand up to such brutal weather? I imagine the material is soft and comfortable? How does it fare in cold weather?
The cashmere Storm System is pretty much true to its word --water-resistant in even the worst down-pours. Sure, if it's really coming down hard, the material will get a little damp on the outside; still, in my experience, it's never soaked through to the clothes I was wearing underneath. As for its warmth, I think the cashmere SS is -- given it's relative thinness -- surprisingly warm. I tend to run "hot" and therefore prefer the thinner material. It's only on days like today in DC where I grab for one of my thicker cashmere overcoats (today, blue, full-length DB). :-/ JV
