Day 3 of the snowpocalypse. Your supplies are running low, so pull on the Basin and Range Women's Blizzard Down Maxi Coat and venture out. You brace yourself as you open the door to the outside world, expecting piercing cold, but find that you feel cozy. The 550-fill down insulation's high warmth-to-weight ratio means you stay super warm without being weighed down as you walk to your neighborhood market. The long length of this coat extends down past your knees for extra protection from wind and cold. A two-way zipper enables you to customize the coat's closure for easier walking.
As you go, you notice that everything feels a little more magical when it's frosted with snow. So you slow down, enjoying the moment. The hood of the coat keeps your head nice and toasty, while the removable faux fur trim helps protect your face from blowing snow and adds a pop of style. Rib knit cuffs are extra warm and keep the wind out as you go. You reach the market calm, composed, and warm. You appreciate the way the coat's sophisticated silhouette and metal zipper pulls make you feel stylish. Before leaving the store, you text your roommates to let them know you might be longer than expected, and then stash your phone in the internal zippered pocket, pull up the hood, and enjoy the walk back home.

Mom's Favorite Winter coat
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Extra Large
I bought this for my mom last Christmas and she loves it! We go up to Mammoth a few times a season and this year it was really cold and snowy each time. She felt warm, comfortable and stylish all at the same time when we'd go out to dinner after skiing. The removable fur on the hood is a nice touch too (she likes to keep the fur on the jacket). She wears a 16 in women's clothing and she's kinda busty. The XL jacket fit her well but a little tight in the chest. She's 5'4" and the length of the jacket hits just above her knees. Overall she's really happy with it and she's more enthusiastic about leaving the condo in a snow storm.
My Wife's Go-To Jacket
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
My wife lived in her maxi coat all winter! She loves the feminine cut and that it isn't overly puffy! Considering she is always cold, she stayed super warm wherever we went. She loved wearing this jacket around town and even out hiking the trails. A great everyday, every occasion jacket. I honestly don't know what she would do without this coat.
Is it waterproof?
This jacket is not waterproof but you can add a DWR treatment to the jacket like our Nikwax Down Proof Solution (item NIK0037 on our site). If you have any further questions feel free to give me ring at my direct number 801 204 4694 or shoot me an email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
