- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large
Besides being a sleazy deal.. The last winter we were in Paris and London, showed me the need for a jacket like this for travel. In Paris we went out for dinner one evening and got caught in an absolute torrential downpour, the jacket I was wearing was down insulated, but no waterproofness at all, even with an umbrella it was soaked by the time we got back to our rental. London was just super cold. This jacket would have been such an awesome coat for that trip. There is no rear slit on the bottom back of the jacket, but it really doesn't need one. The cuffs are super warm and really comfortable. To get the length, the Gore-Tex shell material and then the lightweight 700 fill down. The jacket is something that would be great for urban wear during the winter for dog walks and stylish enough for travel abroad. I got the black in size large. I am a standard large in every coat I buy and this jacket fits great, especially if you are layering, like wearing a sweater, or a vest, or fleece underneath.
I like the outside pockets, two hand and one chest. Those pockets and the main double zipper are all the water tight ones you see on upper end shell jackets. I also was surprised to see one smaller inside zippered pocket along the upper portion of the main zipper.
It is a long coat and the double zipper allows you to unzip from the bottom if you need to get into any of your pants pockets, or adjust anything, like your belt, or manhood without having to unzip the main zipper down.
The quality is very nice and well worth the sale price going on here.
I would recommend this coat to anyone looking for a longer coat with warmth and waterproofness. And the biggest plus.. It isn't a huge puffy jacket. It is slim for a down coat
