I love these boots! They are super warm, relatively water resistant (I wouldn't go puddle jumping, but snow brushes off easily without soaking through). Since the actual boot shaft is down-filled, there is not too much support, which is fine for the dog park but not practical for serious winter hikes. I wear an 11 and have a relatively narrow foot & slim ankle, but these fit perfectly with the laces tightened all the way.

I love this jacket. It's a great alternative to a fleece (light rain and snow roll right off, stands up to light wind, dog hair doesn't congregate on the surface, etc.) for those cooler but not frigid temps in the fall/early winter here in New England. It's definitely not as warm down, so don't confuse this mid-layer jacket with a heavily insulated winter coat. I found the fit to be great - I'm a slim/average 5'8 with long limbs and a shorter torso, so sleeve length is almost always a problem for me, but the medium was a great fit for me.

I really love the fit of my Siphon. It has a longer tail and longer sleeves, exactly what I like to keep out the cold drafts. The body was fitted. Perfect for wearing under a shell and it looks great by itself.I think this would be a great jacket for you -- I'm also tall and thinner, and found the sleeve length to be great and the torso to be svelt. I'm 5'8ish and have a medium, and think it's a great fit.

This will help as a layering option for you. A good base layer, this coat, then a shell is what I recommend.Hey Jennifer, I'm in the same boat as you (always cold). I love this jacket, but it is definitely not something for extreme negative temps (I was chilly with this over a sweatshirt and long sleeves when it was in the 20s). I'd consider this to be more like a water- and wind-resistant fleece, not a sub for a warmer coat.
