I am moving from Oklahoma to Colorado so I figure I'll need a heavier coat. I was looking for a good option for a long coat and it had to be vegan. I planned on testing this in a walk-in freezer at a restaurant, but when it showed up, I could tell I wouldn't need to. it's so heavy and warm! It looks nice, great quality, and i love the thoughtful features. zip pockets for stuff, snap pockets, lined for warmth, for your hands. dual zip, inner faux vest makes it easy to keep closed without all the warmth or trouble of zipping it all the way. side vents for easier sitting or cooling down a bit. inside pocket for important stuff. elastic cuffs to keep the cold out of the sleeves. a great carry bag (and when packed, it'll double as a pillow!). it's not lightweight, and i don't think it'll disappoint in the coldest weather.
I kept this coat because its The warmest thing i have ever experienced so on a 20 degree day you are not bothered and Dont even need a scarf! Im 5’6” and 148lbs curvy. Sizing in a large in one of the other Coats was snug sO i got this one in xL but that makes this coat A bit oversize and a lot of coat to carry aRound. that said its worth the warmth. the double pockets are nice because You can zip away valuables and still have a lined pocket to warm your hands.also the double layer of zippers giVes flexibility. I use this Coat for the coldest days in nEW york city and have other coats for 30F+ days .
Two things you should know--it is heavy, so you'll really want it for the coldest days. And it runs a little small. I'm normally a Size small (american dress size 2-4), and I chose the medium, which is a good fit. I especially like the extra warmth afforded by the faux vest. Most of all, I love being able to have a truly warm coat without having to buy down.
I chose a large size (after reading some reviews) as I wanted to ensure I could wear larger sweaters underneath and it is perfect. I am normally about a medium size.
With only the inner zip closed it is still quite loose, but once you close the full zip it becomes much tighter which is great.
Living in NYC, I love that I can just chuck this parker on and head outside to walk my dog, It is so warm and I just love that I never now have to worry about getting cold when I'm wearing this jacket. Windproof and waterproof is awesome as well. Highly recommend.
I have been waiting a long time for a down free warm coat so i'm dissappointed. My daughter is 5'2" 105 lb and a small was too tight on her. there was no room for winter clothing underneath. Sent it back.
