The British are coming.
When November in New England rolls around, there's no turning back from the trying and laborious winter weather. With their roots deeply entrenched in the infallible colonists' perseverance, Massachusetts based brand, Penfield, refined the art of wading through Jack Frost's reign with the Rockwool Down Jacket for Women. The Rockwool is an apt summary of the resolute settlers' dreams, apple cider donuts, and woolen-rich urban wanderings.
Paired perfectly with your favorite wellies, plaid scarf, and a cozy beanie this retro-styled jacket is equipped with a Teflon coated nylon ripstop exterior and suede shoulder yoke, and it falls just at the hip. The 550 down fill keeps you cozy warm while the supple shearling collar and front snap closure prevents capricious winds from sneaking their way through. So whether you're wandering around Faneuil Hall in Boston or sauntering through the sea-spray soaked streets of Portland, Maine, the Rockwool keeps your steadfast heart warm.

- Q & A
beautiful, but sleeves are too short
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
I am about 5'7" 125 lbs. I first bought the coat in a small, but it was too small (sleeves, bust, not enough room for layering). So I exchanged it for a medium, thinking that would fix the issue. The coat is beautiful (mine was navy with a navy suede yoke and navy shearling) and felt like it would be warm for winter in Colorado (casual wear, of course). And I loved the shearling collar. However, with any movement other than having my arms hang at my sides, the sleeves were too short (and without any kind of internal elastic). Even with gloves, there was a good inch of uncovered skin. I have never had sleeve length problems before. Even for casual wear, a winter coat shouldn't leave unexposed wrists. Also--I purchased it on sale, but I wouldn't pay full price for this (the pockets aren't lined, which you find in similar jackets of the same price). In any case, I will (sadly) be returning it.
