Perfect for bitter cold!
I bought this jacket because I live in Alaska and was tired of freezing. I have run the range of jackets including layering which can be a pain if you are just headed to work and back or out to dinner. I have worn from mountain hardware to Arcteryx, and none have come close to the warmth and comfort of this jacket. It is truly the warmest that I have ever worn. I was concerned about the length as I did not want it sitting on my lower abdomen or high on my waist. The first time I put it on, I felt is was appropriate length. The hood is a bit on the large size, but it is really effective in windy weather. Overall the finish and trim is excellent. The esthetics are very nice as well. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a jacket that will truly keep you warm when the thermometer dips to "0" or below.

best jacket ever
very warm and not too bulky. chest pockets keep your hands warm and comfortable. elastic bands keep the wind out, and the oversized hood keeps your face warm. this jacket will last you a lifetime.

Amazing product for the price!
I have owned this product for 2years, so I have had great experience with it. Durable, fashionable, and very warm. Well worth the price of the item. I'm 5'6, approx. 150lbs, and medium build. I own an XS and the fit is snug when but not constricting. When wearing a t-shirt, the fit is fine, however when wearing sweaters/sweatshirts, the fit becomes more snug. Of course, what kind of fit one likes will vary from buyer to buyer. Jacket falls perfectly at the hips. Features: The jacket cuffs and bottom of the jacket is made of this stretchable material. Definitely helps keep wind out. Hood is big, but can be adjusted with a draw cord. One thing to note is that the fur of the jacket will vary from each jacket, given that the fur of the coyote is different from each animal, so some may be more brown/grey/white, some may be more/less full, but that is the uniqueness of the jacket. Just an excellent product all around.

A great buy
This jacket exceeded my expectations. I knew it was really nice, but I didn't realize how nice it truly was. Everything about it is great; from durability to fit to warmth. However, I do have one gripe about it. The fur really should have been removable. I would have expected it to have this feature, but unfortunately and strangely it doesn't. Other than that, this jacket was well worth everything, from the price to the wait.

Great Winter Jacket: The Chilliwack Parka is very well made, extremely warm and appears to have many seasons of durability. Design: its short cut style so it doesn't blanket you like a parka. Fit: The fit is snug and if you're broad or less than slender you'll probably want to size-up albeit the sleeves are true to length. Value: "You get what you pay for", the quality is very high and I was lucky to catch an end of the season sale at Altrec. I'm very pleased with the purchase.
