The user is satisfied with the jacket. It fits well and the cuffs help keep the sleeves out of the way when she is driving a wheelchair; they also keep out cold air. She did not line the back because she sits in the wheelchair. If she were to redesign the jacket, she would make a full zipper in the front.
