Yes, I know, I should have listened -- listened to the other reviewers who said this zipper was difficult. But I've used 'em all my life and what could be so tough about the zipper on this coat? Well, whoever designed this one is a fiend with a sick sense of humor and they are probably having a good laugh as they read this review. I put on the coat and found that I could not get the zipper started -- i could not zip the coat when I was wearing it! I had to remove the coat to zip it. I thought about taking the coat to my tailor for a new zipper but changed my mind. A shame about the zipper, because otherwise the coat is a beauty.

Others said the zipper was horrible. They were actually complimentary ... I do not know an adjective to describe it. Only took a flyer on it knowing that no merchant is better about standing by their sales than Sierra Trading Post. As always, they were swift with my refund!

Great coat - with one deisgn flaw - the zipper. The zipper is too long e.g. starts at bottom hem and runs to neck line - one would need monkey arms to reach down to properly start the zipper in its tracks. Ideally - the zipper should start about midway. Also zipper is narrow - ideally should be a fat zipper with wide track that can be navigated with gloves and cold fingers.
In any case - coat has buttons as well - so zipper is not so important. I love the fit and finish and have gotten compliments on this coat. Will keep it - will last a lifetime.
