Stylish, warm coat

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've now had this coat for a couple of weeks now and am pretty happy with it. While it is not as warm as my North Face down coat, partially because it is not as long but also seems not as wind resistant/insulating, it is still pretty warm for windy winter days in NW Indiana/Chicagoland area (and it's a lot more stylish). I think it will be perfect for snowboarding though I have not had a chance to test it out yet.
One style drawback is that the liner is not connected to the coat really and it rides up and causes a bulkiness around the midsection that is not very flattering. I would have given it 5 stars if the liner zipped in or was somehow attached to the shell better.
