Rated1out of5byGlacierParkhikerfromIf you like wearing plastic.......The exterior of the coat is lovely, smooth and good looking fabric. The interior on the other hand is laden with plasticky feeling material, and rather gaudy in a "teenager" fashion way. I'm a cotton fan, and wool as well, and this jacket, at least the interior, is offensive to anyone that has even a slight organic sensibility. And with that said, I DO own cold weather wear that incorporates "plastics" to great effect. This jacket seems to forego any attempt at organics, and instead opts for BLING. Maybe it's an age thing, LOL!

Rated4out of5byaddingstfromexcellent jacket for the pricethe only reason this jacket didn't get 5 stars was because of the hood design. you can't wear the hood AND have the collar down with the way it's attached to the collar - goes all the way to the front. plus the hood isn't detachable. other than that, i love this coat. it's super warm without being bulky (rated to keep you warm down to 0 degrees F) and it was one of the few jackets that actually fit me (i'm about 6ft, 195lbs bought jacket size large). the collar all the way up reaches my nose, but is also soft and flexible so it will bend with your head easily. overall, this is a great jacket except for the minor flaw with the hood. plus, it looks super classy.
