Bought this parka for my first winter in upstate NY. I am outside a lot with dogs and used it today when it was gusting 20mph with a windchill of -10 degrees and I was toasty warm. Didn't feel drafty or chilled at all - The drawcords are in the right places to really customize the fit and lock in the warmth. There are two materials used on the exterior and both feel pretty durable - that I am not paranoid about dog tearing holes easily in the jacket if they jump up on me. A lot of down jackets use material that feel too delicate. Thisis not the case here. The only 2 things I wish this parka had would be a drawcord at the neck and inner cuffs at the sleeve openings (a fav feature in my other coats) instead of the the velcro wrist straps.
