I can't say "for the money" since I won one of these during the Christmas drawings. I wanted to review it anyhow. I am 6'-0" at 220 lbs and I chose a Large. It fits well with no dragging when moving around. I've worn it independently down to about 30° and it is comfortable. I have a North Face Gore-Tex shell that has no liner. I've been thinking about buying one, but on a whim decided to see if this may zip in. The teeth are the same size and the zipper length matches. It is tight though; the zipper pull on the MH is a tad thinner than the NF. Had to file the width of the NF zipper entry tab, but it worked great. The only Con to this MH jacket is the static. It is rather dramatic. I've tried soaking and air drying, along with the metal safety pins. I'm about to try scentless dryer sheets out of desperation. It is comfortable while wearing, but when you take it off the static is audibly explosive. Synthetic fill material after all.
"This is a great coat up to the point of freezing. Then you'll need a more lofty coat. Love it!"
I'm 5'll" & 160lbs and I bought this coat in a medium. It's a perfect fit! I can easily layer underneath or put a soft shell over it. Over the past month the collar has taken on a darker color from the oils on my neck & chin, I didn't think I had a grease face?! So far the construction of the coat has been great, no pulled stitches or torn fabric. Did I mention how light this coat is? You tend to forget about it after awhile, but then you start to sweat and remember that you've got this awesome coat on. No regrets, love the coat do far!
