Melissa R.wrote a review of The North Face Metropolis Parka - Women's on October 24, 2011
This coat was not what I expected. Initially, I was surprised by how thin and light it felt. I was expecting a thicker, heavier winter coat for the price. I decided to try it out this past weekend up north Wisconsin. Although the temperature only got as low as the upper-30's (nothing compared to Wisconsin's winters) it was warm, and great at keeping the wind out. I have a size Medium (frame: 5'7", 130 lbs) and it's a great fit, especially for those who like to wear layers. This jacket would be more appealing if the sleeves were longer with some type of elastic band, and with an interior-lined fleece. Overall, based on the outstanding reviews and recommendations from others, I'm hoping this coat will not disappoint with subzero temperatures this winter.
