Catherine HunterI have a hip length tresspass down jacket which I love for its lightweight warmth but wanted something longer for bum and thigh warmth so I bought the Glacial in the summer. It's only just got cold enough to truly appreciate it (early Nov) and I really do! It feels like going out wrapped in a duvet, the cuffs are soft and keep out the drafts up the arms and the sleeves are long enough to tuck my hands into when I forget my gloves. The lower pockets are just big enough for my purse and keys leaving the chest pockets for hands. The hood is quite large which can be awkward but the plus side is I can wear a hat underneath or it accommodates ponytails and buns! It has a strap inside so you can slightly cinch in the waist so I feel stylish AND warm for the first time ever! My only real complaint is that I would have liked adjustable elastic round the hood because when you do it up totally with the strap at the neck it feels a little strangly but if you don't the hood can blow off in the wind. Other than that and it being a little heavy due to the cotton outer, it is perfect for my needs.
