Very warm- Too small

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Winter worker from Black River, Wisconsin on Tuesday, December 4, 2012
I bought this product for my girlfriend, who does a lot of outdoor activities. We go winter camping a lot and this is too heavy to use for backpacking. However, for getting around town (in Wisconsin in February) it is plenty warm and heavy in a good way. It keeps the wind out, love the hood, and the long duck flap is excellent. She uses it for outdoor chores (splitting wood, shoveling snow, etc) and says that it gets a little warm (which at 10 deg F is pretty good).

However, the fit is awkward. She has a small waste but a large hip size (her midriff is large for her height) so the coat was perfect in the shoulders but too small to zip. We had to go a size up and the shoulders ended up being a bit large. I would recommend going to a store and trying on different sizes to get one that fits, then buy it from Sierra Trading Post. The prices can't be beat.
