Ahhhhhh, this coat is my go-to for our winter trips to Telluride Colorado. It is perfect for those chilly 25 degree (or below) days and 0 to -12 degree frigid nights. I love the length, color, & shape. Length keeps my knees and thighs toasty warm. Purchased in the Midnight Navy color to go with jeans and brown boots...but i also really love the 'Royal Red' color! Both are so rich; fabulous colors for winter time. I like to wear it open during the day and zipped up at night. Even zipped up fully it still gives me that hour-glass shape even with a bunch of layers on underneath. Some puffy's can have you lookin like a sack of potatoes....not this one! Plus the hood is a major, MAJOR, benefit for those snowy winter nights. I've flipped it up on many occasions. Love, Love, Love this coat!
