I looked for a long time for a coat that I could wear outside, in the rain, snow or the wind. I walk my dog every day and I volunteer at a horse rescue on weekends where I work outside for hours at a time rain or shine. I was hesitant to order this at first. I live in the US and thought it might be hard to return if I didn't like it, and it was priced above some of the other jackets I looked at. But, this jacket is fantastic. I love it. I've walked for an hour in cold rain with my dog and stayed warm and dry. I also love how this coat looks. I did have a slight issue with the zipper when I first got it, I was worried it wasn't working. But, it's fine now, I'm not sure what the issue was, I may have had to get used to it since it is not a typical metal zipper. Overall, super happy with it. I know I'll have it forever.
