I am from Chicago. Where am I going?? Nowhere! Except I am going to be warm and toasty and enjoying the ride this winter.

I bought the Mountian Hardwear Downtown Coat Dec 2011. I wore it for 1 season and the coat ripped on the outside seem of the pocket and down came pouring out. i wrote Backcountry.com ( not knowing there was a no questions asked return policy) and they were wonderful when I asked to exchange the coat. So now for the coat review...The coat is SOLID. Well put together. I pretty much walk my dog and go to the market in my coat and this coat will last me years. I almost knew I should have picked the North Face coat at first and I was upset I hadn't. it's very warm. Not sure if it's as warm as the mountian hardwear yet because it hasn't been that cold since I recieved the replacement coat. The Northface stays clean. The material is rugged. The down part on the inside keeps me warm (so far). I am xl right now and only had a choice of the Large coat, so I can't wait until next season when I am med-large again and this coat fits me correctly. It's very comfortable and cozy considering. I suggest ordering a size larger to accomodate a sweater or layers underneath. Overall: GREAT COAT!

The fit is fantastic. I am 5'3 at 145 lbs and the Large fits perfectly. There's just enough room to layer if I want but it isn't necessary. I read other reviews that complained about the sleve length but the sleve length is perfect for me. I don't think I've tried on a coat that fit any better. I live in Chicago and we've had a mild winter so far but even on the coldest days at 5 degrees, this coat has been very warm. I haven't been able to test it in the coldest weather conditions yet but I'm confident this coat will hold it's own. What I love about it also is that it's lightweight and stylish. I got this as a gift and it's been perfect.
