A waterproof, insulated parka with street style.
Instead of hibernating under twenty blankets when it's wet and cold outside, slide on the Women's /29 Gore-Tex Insulated Parka and meet your friends at the coffee shop, check out the holiday lights, build a snowman-family with your nieces, or go on your first sleigh ride. The /29's Gore-Tex shell gives this unique parka guaranteed waterproof breathable protection. Norrona stuffed this parka with 200g PrimaLoft Sport insulation that's insanely warm, wonderfully light, and incredibly soft so you don't feel weighed down.
Norrona made sure all these amazing features fit into a clean, sleek urban look. This parka has a long cut that offers extended coverage, and its huge hood keeps your hair dry so you don't look like a mess when you get to work. Not only do the inner gaiters keep the sleeves in place while you walk down the snowy sidewalks, but they turn into mittens for the ultimate warmth. If that's not enough for your fingers, then stuff them in the fleece-lined hand-warmer pockets for extra cozy warmth. So say goodbye to numb fingers, cold wrists, and wet clothes because this parka just became your best friend in cold, wet weather.

Norrona /29 Gore-Tex Insulated Parka
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
I bought this jacket thinking it will keep me warm. For the price of this parka, it should keep me warm, block the wind from hitting my back & chest. My North Face is 100% warmer! You can not use this parka on windy days or anything below 30 F.

Is this jacket more form fitting or relaxed?
I am 5'5'' tall and around 125 lbs. Not sure if SMALL or MEDIUM would fit better.
Also, does the zipper on the front feel weird when zippered all the way under your chin when it is, say, windy?
Usually, coats have something protective under the chin, not to get your chin pinched or similar, and this jacket has a continuous zipper running all the way around the hood.
Looks cool but not sure how functional and convenient it is...
I am pretty much exactly those same measurements, and I would personally go with the Medium, just because it is slightly more form fitting that a normal jacket. Especially if you plan on layering at all.
In regards to the zipper, there is a little piece of fabric that goes halfway up the hood to protect your neck and face from having the zipper nip at your skin, so it's pretty functional, as well as convenient :)
Can this coat be safely washed with regular...
Can this coat be safely washed with regular detergent or is the Tech Wash a must?
I strongly do recommend the tech wash to keep up the waterproofing and breathability of the Gore fabric- regular detergents will wear away at both!
I agree completely with Kayla on this one!
This jacket is an investment, so I think it's worth it to spend a few extra bucks to ensure the fabric is properly washed! Regular detergents can clog the pores of the breathable/waterproof membrane.

What is the length of the coat - measuring from the back? How does it compare to the length of the jacket version of this?

BEST JACKET I HAVE EVER PURCHASED.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
Hands down. This is the BEST JACKET I HAVE EVER PURCHASED.
Pricey, yes. But this is an investment piece I will keep forever. Warm, waterproof, full length and the best part is that it still looks good. I am happy, warm, dry and stylish. Check.
