The North Face Arctic II Down Parka - Women'sis rated4.1667out of5by6.
Rated4out of5byfromGreat Coat!This coat is great! It's extremely warm and durable, and keeps the wind out. Living in Wisconsin I needed a heavy duty coat during the cold winter months and this is perfect. The only downside is when the coat is zipped all the way up, the zipper scratches my chin. Otherwise a wonderful coat. I also love how the fur on the hood can be zipped off if it's not your style.

Rated4out of5byfromlove this coatI am disabled with limitations in my activites, one of the only things I can do is walk, so I walk in the snow, the rain, the sun. I also live at the base of the mountains and we get really cold weather, this is the coat I wear when it's cold, my go to, its down to my knees and the hood fits over my headphones that I use to cover my ears in the cold winter winds, it's awesome, snaps and zips not a bit of velcro (hate velcro), love this lightweight extremely warm coat.

Rated5out of5byfrom"Best coat I've ever owned"Finding a good coat has been a lifelong quest for my wife. It seems most coat manufacturers choose either a) you'll freeze, but at least you look hot! or b) you'll be warm, but you look like Grimace. This coat manages to be form-fitting and tapered, yet warm, stylish, waterproof, and with a modern, understated design, with no flamboyant trim or logos. Highly recommended!

Rated5out of5byfromThis coat ROCKS!I purchased this specific coat because it was so well rated and recommended. I was in the market for the warmest knee length jacket, and I found it. Perfect fit(jacket=size small, me=5'6" @ 120lbs w long arms). Cozy, comfortable, functional, waterproof, durable, dual zip, warm hood, long sleeves with cuffs. So very happy with my purchase! Way to go The North Face!!

Rated3out of5byfromNot fit for MN WintersI've had this jacket for about a month now and during that time I have experienced all sorts of MN winter weather - rain, wind, snow, extreme low temps. This jacket does best when the temps do not dip below zero and the wind is at a minimum. I was quite chilly when the temps dipped below zero and the windchill was in the double negatives. I noticed the chill mainly in the sleeves; the body area remained warmer. I purchased this jacket b/c of its length and feedback from a sales member at REI. Unfortunately, it hasn't cracked up to all that it was said to be. I previously had an LL Bean jacket and it just started wearing out after 15+ years. This jacket is of considerable warmth brand new. One thing to note is that you can't pull up the hood up when the zipper is all the way up. I have received a lot of compliments on the style of the jacket. I noticed that some of the reviews stated they couldn't wear bulky items underneath, but I haven't found that to be a problem.

Rated4out of5byfromGreat CoatSo cute, and functional. Unfortunately it seems to run a little small. It fits, but if I'd wear a heavy sweater or layer a jacket it'd be tight. I'm 5'4, 150, 34D and curvy. I am exchanging the M for a L. Hopfully it will work!
