I LOVE this coat. It is beautiful in both design and color (I got the Ink Blue), exceptionally warm, and perfectly fitted (I'm 5'6" and a Size M falls just a few inches above my knees--enough to keep my bum warm without feeling like I'm in a sleeping bag). And,there's no need to worry about looking like the Michelin Man; the coat looks great on! Its water-resistant shell effectively blocks the cold Northeast wind; its lined pockets are super soft and warm; and its hood is roomy enough to fit ear muffs and a hat underneath. The interior pockets are a great feature, too. This coat has kept me toasty warm in Boston, MA and in Montreal, QC! Yes, every now and again, a feather or two might poke out of the shell (it is a down coat, after all), but it's really no big deal. It's a GREAT investment! So happy I bought it.
