M reddingMy wife and I have one of these coats.Both been out in torrential rain and stayed dry.Not really been out in the winter yet but coat seems to be warm without a jumper on chilly days.They were a good buy
GreggI ordered this jacket on Tuesday night and received today, Friday which is excellent service, the jacket is a really good warm parker, its pretty big, I'm a 40" chest just shy of 6ft with pretty athletic build & the medium fits perfectly. As with all parker styles the back does flare out slightly, (not enough to bother about) and can be drawn in using the draw-strings at the bottom, middle and the hood too which is detachable as well as the fur line to the front of the hood for rainy days it can come off independently of the hood. Its got a good weight to it and its not superman mountaineering material but the price reflects that and will see how it fairs through the winter. All in, very happy! Along with the pockets on the front you can see in the pics there are 4 zipped pockets, 1 inside, 1 on the upper pocket you can see in the pics and 2 on the sides of the bottom pockets which are very handy.
As the man falling from a 40 story building said... so far, so good, so far, so good...
Tom MeyerI bought this jacket for the daily commute to work and for general use around town during colder days. It is warm and windproof (haven't tried it in the rain yet so cannot comment on the water tightness) and is a lot less bulky than many of the popular down parkas on the market (e.g. North Face McMurdo, Canada Goose) which tend to be too warm for the British climate. The extra length means that I can wear a suit jacket underneath without it sticking out at the bottom. While there are seven pockets on the outside, only one secure pocket is provided on the inside.
The jacket comes at a very reasonable price and is just right for predominately urban use but for longer outdoor activities or trips to the Arctic Circle you might want to invest in the aforementioned but much more expensive alternatives.
