This is a good coat, warm without being too warm, e.g. a Canadian parka which are often unwearable when it's not freezing. I like the neck / hood design which allows a cosy fit round your neck. Things to improve? 1) The zip on the inside pocket jams at times, I don't think it's getting better with use. 2) why have the ends of the tightening cords in the hand warmer pockets? Just a nuisance. Apart from that, it's been a good buy - recommended.
