I've been searching for a decent winter coat for a while and had really high hopes for this one. My first issue with this coat is the false advertising. In the online description, it says 700 fill but on the tag on the coat it says 600. The coat is warm but for the cost I feel like it should be 700 fill. The hood on the coat is a snap-on and very easily pops off. I'm also not a fan of the zipper. Not sure why a double zipper would be necessary but it's not something I need and it makes it more difficult to zip. The coat is also much longer than I expected. I'm not sure if it's because the pockets are so large, but it creates kind of a pouch in front which isn't exactly flattering. It would be nice to see the coats being worn in the online photos so I would have known how it fits. Overall I thought the coat would be better quality. This was my first purchase from Moosejaw and it hasn't made me want to continue purchasing their products.
The coat itself is warm. I like the outer fabric. It's a little more windproof than the other coats I've tried this season. And the insulation is good-either 75% or 85% down (can't remember) and 700 fill. I returned it because it doesn't fit me properly. It is not snug against the back of my neck, so that makes it very cold. And, it lays funny in the front at the zipper. I thought maybe it was because of the weight of the fur on the hood, but taking it off didn't help. Also, the fur is awkwardly attached with snaps, as is the hood-letting in the cold. The only part of the hood that is attached with zippers is the vertical part where it attaches under the collar (hard to explain) but this makes it very stiff and causes the collar to not la down well. It's a shame this coat wasn't thought out better. I would have kept it if it worked better because like I said - the coat itself is warm!
