- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
Normally I wear a small or a medium, but after researching I went with the medium (for layering purposes). I am very happy with the size I chose.
The fit is comfortable with adequate shoulder and chest room. Also long enough to cover my bottom, but not too long where it hinders any leg movement. I can wear a sweatshirt or a simple long sleeve underneath and either way I have perfect amount of wiggle room and warmth.
I live in northern Michigan where winters are brutal and so far, this is the best I’ve owned. I added additional layer of the G-1000 wax for the wet days and the process was super easy. Rub wax on, blow dry to melt in and no residue was left over. The inside of the parka is a normal smooth/sleek parka material, so the wax is only necessary for the outer side.
Overall this coat has kept me warm and dry and is absolutely stunning! I went with dark grey so I can match with virtually any color and it did not disappoint.
