I have gotten a TON of compliments on this jacket. Everyone wants to know who makes it.
It is TOASTY warm. It utilizes a responsibly sourced down (it is RDS certified), and a box construction vs a stitched through which helps a lot with the warmth when a jacket is meant as an outer layer. The outer fabric is also windproof and water repellent.
They kept this jacket simple with two outer hand pockets, and one stash pocket on the left sleeve only. There are no interior pockets and no powder skirt. It has interior cuffs with thumbholes, and the left cuff has an extra slot so that you can check your watch without pulling back the cuff.
The cut is a touch long with a drop tail, which is EXACTLY what I was looking for. Long down coats don't fit my pear shape super well, but I wanted something with a longer cut that would still cover my rear. Most options are short or extra long, or if they are medium length they are cheap and lack mobility in the arms, so I am REALLY stoked to find this one in the middle with such a great fit, function, and feel good business model.
I enjoy the simplicity, the warmth, and the style, and have been wearing it every cold day so far this season.
This is the first time I've purchased something from Bergans, and I am definitely impressed!
