Emeralda Down Parka
Don't let wintry weather hold you back—get on with your life with the Outdoor Research Emeralda Down Parka. Its stylish exterior in no way minimizes its performance chops, as it maintains its sleek look with water- and wind-resistant Pertex Quantum Pro fabric. Underneath that weather-resistant shell, baffles filled with high-loft down insulate you, keeping your body heat in and cold air out. An adjustable hood and waist minimize drafts, and the sleeves hide slim-fitting cuffs with thumbholes to ensure they stay in place. An internal stormflap runs the length of the zipper to seal out gusts of wind, while the dual-direction zipper allows you to vent excess heat on more temperate days.

I just received this new coat and I already love it! I have lost track of the number of long down coats I've ordered online and had to return because they looked like tents on me. I am 6' tall and 180lbs so in order to get a coat that fits in the shoulders I need to normally order an XL but then the body part is huge. Outdoor Research got it right! This coat has very long arms and roomy shoulder so the L fits perfect w/room for a sweater underneath. It also looks very fitted and makes me look slim and NOT like a tent. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because, even though it says 700 fill power down, it is not as warm as I had hoped. It also could be made a bit warmer with a fleece body lining but over all I am thrilled to find a long down coat that fits!
