I really wanted to like and keep this jacket
. Compared to other down coats
I've seen, it was much longer (plus) and lighter weight/less bulky (plus). Turns out, there is a downside to those plusses...not as warm. There is very little if any down in the lower part of the sleeves which was the coldest part of the jacket
. Overall, it is a great coat for temps about 30-40 with low wind. It is one of the most stylish down coats
I've seen too. Unfortunately, for temps lower than 30 and high winds, it just didn't do the job like other bulkier coats
do. It is an awesome coat to run errands in (shopping, etc) because you don't get overheated and it is very light in the car due to low bulk. The reason I got this coat though, was primarily for frigid, windy days. I debated whether to keep it for warmer winter days, but just couldn't justify another medium temp coat.
