My husband has worn Helly Hansen oil skins on the boat for years and the name has proven to be top of the line for generations of waterman. I saw this coat and knowing this plus needing something stylish yet warm to get through this hellish winter was all I needed to purchase it. I'm a tall girl, 5'10" and curvy (hippy) and the large fits perfectly. Very warm and comes down to about mid thigh. Love it. Only wish that winter wasn't coming to an end soon so I can get more wear out of it :(. Well I really wish for spring but at least I'll have this nice warm coat waiting for me next winter :)
We've been having some pretty snowy/icy/cold winter weather here in Philly this year, so I was on the hunt for a warm yet stylish winter coat. Being the genius that I am, I decided to wait until mid-January to start looking, and found that most warm winter down coats have been sold out. Well as luck should have it, Moosejaw had this awesome Helly Hansen coat in stock. I bought the black in a size L and it's pretty TTS (if not a little roomy). I am a 36D and size 28 in pants. I can easily wear a big sweater under this coat and still have plenty of breathing room. I'm 5'4" and the coat comes to my knees. It's warm and very light weight too. The zippered hood is removable and has a string on the inside that you can pull snug to keep the wind out. The inside of the collar is fleece and very comfortable. Overall I am extremely happy with my purchase. If you are looking for a warm, light weight, stylish coat, look no further!
