Very nice, just not what I thought.

The Aria Storm Parka is extremely well-made and very flattering. If you're wondering about sizing, I'm 5'4" 130 lb, and the Medium fit just fine with room for layering. The pocket stuff sack is nifty, a great feature. It packs itself into a long cylindrical shape that would work great as a travel pillow. I also love that the down is ethically sourced. The fatal flaw for me was that it was very thin. The layer of down may be packed in there to 650 fill, but it's so thin that I could pinch the fabric and feel the back from the front. To test it, I took the trash out in 20-30F degree weather and even during that short time, my arms became cold - no cuffs to keep the cold air out. I was looking for a robust down parka that would keep me warm in near-zero or even sub-zero temps. This is not that, so I'm returning, although it breaks my heart - again, so cute! I'll wait for the more robust Fernie Parka coming next fall that an OR rep mentioned in the comments on another site.
