Rated4out of5byKari the SnowboardCHIKfromFun Sporty Winter CoatI love the color of this coat! I purchased it in blue. I wear it for everything. It feels sporty and stylish. I didn't notice that it wasn't waterproof or water resistant, which I did go snowboarding about 5 different days this winter with it. For the first part of spring I took the hood off and used it for a lighter jacket.
The only con was that when I went snowboarding and would bend over it would expose my back even though I had my snow skirt fastened. Which led to my back getting cold and wet. The next time I went I pulled my snow pants up higher with a belt and I was fine.

Rated1out of5bybkgrlfromNOT worth itI would not recommend buying this jacket if you want to use it in bad weather. It looks great--love the removable fake fur trim and removable hood. Too many of the winter coats have snap out linings, which I didn't want. However, I wanted a waterproof jacket. This is NOT at all, which it was advertised to be. It's not even water resistant. And it's pilling and some seams are lose after 2 months of wear.
