Bought this coat as a gift. I ordered the dark ruby color which is a great alternative to black. Living in the north east this coat is great to wear with layers and hits mid theigh. The coat sizing runs true to size.
You may think that was an overstatement but seriously. It's got Patagonia's warmth and gorgeous color (I bought the one in green), but the way it fits is glorious. It feels like an updated version of the North Face Metropolis. The quilted pattern makes it a little snazzier and it definitely flatters better than the Metropolis (I've owned both). This is obviously not a coat for the Arctic or the Antarctic but with some layering it will suit me just fine for the freezing midwest winter.
