by fromDo Not Buy This Coat The is the worst jacket I have purchased. The zipper comes undone if you have a scarf or do not zip all the way up. The pockets are not cut at an angle so everything falls out of the pockets. There isn't a storm flap so on very cold days the wind goes through the zipper. The fleece only on the chest, keeps this area too hot versus the other areas and you will look like a polar bear if you have a larger chest size. The bottom of the coat (around the legs) dips in and make the proportions of the top to the bottom look off. I wish I had not purchased this coat. It does have an internal draw string, which brings the waist in a little. I wish I didn't take the tag off this coat or it would have been returned!

by fromMountain Hardware Downtown Coat Was looking for a coat that was warm, but nice enough for professional look (to and from work). This coat is excellent and stylish. I have similar type-coats for camping that is why I was drawn to this brand for the office or casual attire.

by fromdeliciously warm I am never cold in this amazing coat. The only reason I say it doesn't fit in the sleeves is because I have insanely long arms and no sleeves fit me... pretty much ever. But this coat comes very close. Good job mountain hardwear.

by fromPricey but Worth It I ended up choosing this coat as an alternative to one at another large retailer. One noticeable difference - the zipper on this coat is excellent. It is also extremely warm. My only issue is the sleeve length. I'm always pulling down the sleeves when I wear it. I'm 5'7" and on the slender side; I got a Small in Espresso and the sleeves are just not quite long enough. I'll keep it, though, and wear gloves that cover the gap .. looks wonderful and I've received many compliments.

by fromGreat Coat I use this coat for general winter duty. Wear it to work, for errands, to the ski trails, etc. I live in a major snow belt, and we get some pretty intense winter weather. This coat is intended for blizzard-duty. I love how soft this is. The inner fleece is great, too (although it isn't against your skin, so I'm not sure how much it matters). The neck is great - it zips up high under my chin, and doesn't leave a gap for cold air to sneak in. I don't wear a scarf, but I don't think one would fit inside the collar. The sleeve length is a little on the long side, which I like. I've seen a lot of references to the lack of thumb loops, but I'm really not sure how they would help - it seems fine without them, to me. Overall, the coat fits close, which I think will help it trap warm air and not scoop in cold air. The hood is wonderful - it fits close, without being restrictive - stands up to big wind gusts. Love the Espresso color (it is the darker of the two browns I've seen when looking at this coat on different websites - at least that is what I got). The length is as advertised - I wish it were longer (knee length), but couldn't find a coat with all the features I wanted. I tried the MH side by side with the Marmot Montreaux, and expected to buy that, but overall, the Marmot seemed like it would allow a lot of cold air in (VERY big neck opening, big, floppy hood, thinner, less sturdy zipper, etc). I wanted to try the Chelsea, for something more windproof, but couldn't find one to examine in a store. The Downtown coat has a few small weak points. 1) I'm not sure how durable the soft fabric will be. So far, so good, but I sometimes wish it had a little more structure to it. 2) The zipper doesn't have any sort of flap over the end, so I find it scraping on the bottom of my chin, so I fiddle with it a lot. It does have a fleece chin guard on the inside, but it's the actual end of the zipper at the top. 3) Again, I wish it were 3-6" longer. 4) I'd prefer it if it had more down fill. It seems to have more than any of the others I tried, and it's been very warm and cozy so far, but this isn't really a standing-around-in-the-cold-all-day coat. I just could not find a long coat with as much fill as I was hoping. I did size up to a large (typically a medium in MH stuff), so my down sweater should fit underneath in a emergency. I haven't been able to try it in really frigid weather, but I tested it at 14 degrees with 40 mph wind gusts, and didn't notice the wind at all. I was concerned, since some reviewers said it didn't do well in wind. I've also worn it at 5 degrees F, and it did fine. Once again, not standing around all day. Overall, I love this thing.

by fromWarm Coat! I've had this coat for about a month now and have been fairly happy with it. It's definitely warm and comfortable, especially with the hood up! One question I have for other owners is about feather leakage. I frequently find small feathers leaking out of the coat. Is this normal for a down coat? I've never owned one before. Also, like one prior reviewer said, the sleeves are a tad bit short. I purchased the small size (I wear a 4-6 and am 5'4") and find I'm pulling the sleeves down when I'm wearing a bulky sweater underneath. Like the previous reviewer, I've solved this issue by wearing gloves! Overall, I'm happy with the coat. Just wondering about the leaking feathers . . .
