Unimpressed

I had high hopes, because this could be a lot of coat value. Here are some pros and cons:
Pros: shell material is light, yet feels strong; nice deep pockets; good hood; looks nice enough for a jaunt around town; sizing is good for throwing over a base layer or a light insulating piece.
Cons: shed a LOT of feathers, and not down feathers (I looked back at the description and it says "Insulation: 80% duck down, 20% feathers" -- I don't know if this is some of that 20% whatever feathers, but it was excessive and more than any other down jacket I've owned); the cuffs are completely lacking in elasticity, so they don't seal around your wrists to keep heat in / cold air out (check the pic).

I'm returning this coat because the shedding isn't slowing down and the cuffs seem poorly done. No point in a warm coat if its just letting a bunch of cold in.
