This jacket has a nice length all the way down to the knees, keeping you warm while standing outside in the frigid Minnesota winters. The length is also nice while sitting in a cold car in the morning. The sleeves are a bit long, but this is nice so they pull down over gloves. The 600 fill down really does keep you incredibly warm, while not being to heavy. The jacket also has a nice style which allows wearing to fancy occasions without feeling underdressed. The only downside is that sometimes the zipper catches at the bottom.
