So I wrote the previous review on 11/16 and I just wanted to give an update. I have now tried this coat out in -20 F (with wind and snow) due to our lovely Minnesota winters and this coat still kept me warm! I am shocked, awed and amazed. It stopped the wind, the snow and everything else the world threw at it and I only had one layer on underneath! Plus it looks so nice that I wear this coat to the theater as much as I wear it in the woods. I was comfortable in this jacket in 20 F and -20 F. This jacket is seriously awesome. And as someone who recently moved from California to the lands of ice and snow, I want to personally thank the manufacturers of Marmot for making such a warm and attractive coat!
I recently moved to Minnesota and needed a truly warm winter coat. This coat is so much more than I was expecting! It is beautiful with a fitted waist, but with the warmth of 650 down fill power. Warm and sexy--yes please! I knew for this climate 550 fill was not enough. I feel its very true to size. I ordered a Large figuring that I would want more room to layer, but I ended up returning for the Medium instead. I am 5' 6", bust 35", waist 30", and hips 39". The sleeves and waist are loose enough to accommodate other warm layers while still looking attractive.Other features that I love:-hand-warmer pockets-fleece cuffs on sleeves-removable hood with removable fur trim-SNAPS instead of buttons over zipper-SOFT shell fabric-lightweight and warm!I haven't been able to test in extreme cold, but it has done well in 30 degrees and breaks the rain, snow and wind easily. I feel it will perform well in lower temperatures. I am a very happy customer and highly recommend this coat!
