"Amazing quality and warmth with a few quirks"
I live in Chicago and this parka has protected me well this winter,-30-40 degree F weather. I've worn this for lengthy periods outside in negative weather with only a t shirt underneath and been warm! This is for the coldest of the cold. Expensive, but crazy warm. There are about a thousand different pockets hidden all around this coat, inside and out, which is super useful for my every day commute. Lined chest pockets are also soft and really nice to hide your hands in if you forget gloves. Down covered hood with draw cords means my head is always warm.A few semi-major gripes: it runs huge (I'm 6'0" 190 lbs, got a medium, and definitely could have gone down to a small), and the faux-fur on the parka hood doesn't hold a candle to real fur in terms of softness and heat retention. For this price point, real fur should be a given. And it fits pretty boxy compared to something like Canada Goose or Arcteryx. Still, well worth a purchase and has protected me well this winter!
I'm impressed with the jacket's quality, but that should be expected in this price range. The jacket runs very large. I am 6'1" and 180 lbs. I think a medium turned out to be the correct fit for me. But a small might have even worked. Ultimately. I felt more comfortable erring on the bigger side for layering. The length of the arms and body are perfect.
