THis coat is beautifully made, well constructed, lovely touches, but it just isn't warm enough for harsh windy upstate ny winters. The hood is horrible, it lofts on top, not landing...and it leaves so much of your face exposed, particularly the sides. The length is great, to the knees, but the down isn't enough to be warm when it is 30 or below. It is fine for 30-40 degrees. It is 600 fill by the way. I hope the marmot montreaux will be warmer for my wicked winters.

This coat is warm. You won't have any problem with the cold with this, but it has some serious faults for the price. First, it is VERY VERY heavy. You feel like you are wearing lead. 2nd, you can't wash it. IT MUST be dry cleaned, and it can only be dry cleaned so many times in its lifetime, otherwise you ruin the protective spray coating. ANd, down needs to be washed now and again, it can pack down, matt with sweat, and you need to refluff it. LAST, the one I had, broke micro holes in the seams of the sleeves, only after a few wears, looked like the material rubbed on the material at my side, and broke down, but after only 4-5 times? ALSO, canada goose as a manufacturer, is out dated, they don't revamp their technology or listen to product defaults, suggestions, like they live in their own world. SO beware, a lot to pay for some serious misgivings.

I think this coat is pretty fabulous, for several reasons....one it is really warm, warmer than my Patagaonia down with it coat, and it has an awesome hood,w hich I need, and it is hard to find...it is deep and cinches down with cinch cord. I also like how long this coat is, reaching to the knees, just like my patagonia down with it coat. I took a large and am a size 8, but I swim and am broad in the shoulders. I think it might run on the small side, but not by much. I think it will be far warmer than my patagonia and I need the hood for my wicked NE winds in upstate ny. It feels light still, but warmer, more down, and it is long, and has a great hood. I love the quality of patagonia, but the coats aren't that warm, and i am shocked how everyone thinks they are, cuz I am hardy, but they don't really cut it. So try it if you need a hood, and warmth. THe steel is alovely color, grey/navy, dark. Ya, I wish marmot wasn't blazed over the chest, but what can one do?

These boots are very warm. They are stuff with very thick shearling. I always have cold feet and I can wear these boots in 20 degree, 15 weather without socks and I never feel cold. The sole, I feel gives your foot much more support than an UGG, but it is clunky and heavyish. Not bad though. YOu can wear these boots in the snow and they will repel snow for awhile, then they get wet, but miraculously your feet still don't get wet. But I've been told, hence, you just spray them and then they don't even get wet. Spray them before they ever get wet and they will not stain. You can spray them with UGG spray or any spray for suede. Overall, I think they are very nice. Great warmth and more foot support. Also wide for toes, as I have bunions.
