I bought this coat during a recent cold freeze, and I absolutely love it. I wanted a knee length, very warm, waterproof, and stylish jacket
in an affordable price range. Be sure to read the reviews on North Face
- some helpful tips. This is a coat that fits - not baggy - so some found that they wanted a larger size. I am 5ft 4 and 110 lbs, and I'm typically swimming in the x-small jackets
from LL Bean and North Face
. This one fit perfectly in all 3 jackets
but I think I will mostly wear the trench on its own or as part of winter jacket
(inner looks nice on its own, just not as useful as the other 2). I was initially disappointed with the pockets (only 2 small ones on trench and only one side of pocket is micro fleece) but I've found they fit my gloves
, hat, and hands which is really all I needed. I expected to wear it only when it's really cold, but it's so nice looking that I have worn it every day under 40 degrees. And it's great in the rain! Also my Zappos experience was great. It went on sale 5 days after I bought, and they issued a credit as soon as I contacted them. Overall, I am one very happy customer!
