The coat is absolutely beautiful. I bought it as a complete splurge during a backcountry sale in December. I have been pleasantly surprised how warm this coat keeps me during a Minnesota winter. Even in negative wind chills (-10ish) I am still extremely warm. This coat is rated a 3, so I would not wear it in extreme cold such as -25 and below. If you are looking a parka in the extreme cold I would recommend the Mystique parka. However in normal cold conditions the coat is great. Also the overly large hood is perfect for keeping both the wind and snow out of my face. The zipper in the back is also perfect for when you have to sit wearing the coat. This style is meant to fit very snug to preserve body heat, so the added zipper is great for when I do drive wearing my parka. Highly recommend especially the military green color.

I live and work in downtown Saint Paul Minnesota. I very much prefer to walk the ~ 1 Mile to and from work every day. This coat has been amazing this winter as we have already experienced severe cold with wind chills ~ minus 30's. When first looking at this coat I did not love that it has real fur. However the fur hood does really keep the strong wind out of my face, keeping me warm. This week the windchill was in the minus 20's most mornings. I threw this parka on over my dress and tights along with sorel Joan of Artic boots for my walk into work and I was warm during the entire walk. I love the length of this coat, where the coat ends meets tall Ugg or Sorel boots. I love that I can just throw this parka on without putting a ton of layers on and keep walking to work, not resorting to driving. If you live somewhere really cold this parka is 100% worth the money. I did see other reviews commenting on the strange placement of the pockets. Yes they are strangely high ( but warm and fleece lined) but when it is cold enough to wear this coat I will always be wearing mittens, so it really isn't an issue for me. I also really love the ribbed cuffs on the arm openings. They are very stretchy and I can easily put my mittens on then pull the cuffs over my mittens on my own to keep my hands warms. Overall I can't say enough about how much I love this coat!!!!! After going to school in MI I own several competitors parkas that are similar in length to this, nocomparison this parka is far better when it comes to keeping me warm.
