Information about Lowe Alpine Supernova Parka - 700 Fill Power Down (For Women)
Closeouts. Lowe Alpine's Supernova down parka isn’t quite as toasty as the surface of a real supernova, but you'll be close once you're wrapped in its 700 fill power down and windproof shell. Designed for the bone-chilling cold of high mountains, internal baffle construction maintains consistent warmth and prevents cold spots.
Snap-off, helmet-compatible hood with moldable brim

I'm in love with this coat!!! It's everything I ever dreamed of. I'm ALWAYS cold and wanted to end that forever, and this coat does it! I can't even feel the wind. So many different cords and stuff to make it snug or looser depending on specific weather conditions. Putting it on is like being hugged...

I gave this jacket 4 stars rather than 5 due to the zipper being difficult to get started and the sturdiness of the zipper. This jacket is extremely warm and traps your body heat very effectively. The jacket is not actually goose down, but rather European Musckovy duck down. Musckovy duck down is similar to Eider duck down, which is considered one of the best down insulators on the market.
Use: I bought this jacket for backcountry snowboarding trips and for snowshoeing. The jacket is made more for mountaineering due to the overzied fit that is great for putting on over your approach layers when you stop. Also, the pockets are perfectly placed since they are still accesible while wearing a pack with a hip belt or a harness.
Fit: I bought a medium, but a small would have fit as well given my use for this jacket. The sleave length is perfect since most sleaves are not long enough for me-I'm 5'7" with long limbs. I generally wear a size 4 or 6, so I definitely fall in between the small/medium size gap.

This is the warmest coat I've ever owned. I can stand around in 25 mph winds on days in the teens and 20s and not feel a thing. The only problem I have with the jacket is the zipper. Like other reviewers mentioned, it can be hard to get started. A heftier zipper would have made this jacket unbeatable.
