Hello, I'm going to be spending several months in Alaska and in temps around -15* F. Would this jacket be sufficient with layering? Also, what is the length of the jacket? I am looking for something that is approximately thigh length. I am 5'9" and 175 lbs. Thanks.

That all depends on how long you are going to be outside. If you are walking from your car to the store, it will do fine with a shirt and sweater. But, if you intend on spending hours at a time in the outdoors, you really want to go with something more technical. As for sizing, if you're torse is 40 inches or less, go with a medium, otherwise a large. The jacket will only reach about mid-hips though. It is casual street wear!
