this version vs Chelsea 2010
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've bought this coat, because I liked so much the same model in 2010 edition. What can I say, the buttons upfront are more comfortable than velcro in 2010 version, the fabric also seems better, BUT the new version of Chelsea is TWICE thinner. Before Marmot coats were the best price/quality I've known. Now it looks like a mass market brand that is only claiming to be professional (e.g. Columbia, NorthFace, etc.) Give the down back to coats!
