My husband loves this coat.
Pros: It is abundantly warm, very durable, and semi-affordable for what you get--his most desired qualities in a coat..
Cons: it is bulky and he overheats in weather above 20f.
Recently he wore this in -35f windchill weather outside for 45 min and was happy to have this coat. It is a best-buy item, not the best, but maybe for the money it is. Runs a tad large. Fits his broad shoulders but is baggy mid-torso.

I bought it 3 years ago in a discontinued color deeply discounted. Having just experienced two days of polar vortex Michigan weather walking to work in -35 windchill weather I have never been cold wearing this coat (other than my body parts not covered by it). It is overly warm for me above 20 f. Best coat I have ever owned.

I am having a lot of trouble finding a pack to fit. I'm 5'5", 110 pounds and very boney in shoulders and hips. I usually pack up to 50 lbs on multi-day hikes (I carry my stuff and my large 8 year olds stuff, too plus dog's stuff and a bear canister and 200 oz of water for everybody in dry areas). Also, a lot of hipbelts are just too big for my 25" waist and my hips aren't much bigger at 30", but I have a 17 1/2" torso so xs bag don't work. My current bag slides all over cinched all the way down--kelty coyote 4750, size small, but I do like the padding on the shoulder straps and cargo size is good. Just need less girth on hipbelt and more shoulder comfort. The osprey ariel didn't feel good at all on my protruding clavicles nor the deuter act 60, aura, jade, rei flash and ridgeline, diva, nor go lite quest. any pack suggestions other than the standard "pack less"?
