I bought this jacket to combine off the mtn style with on the mtn performance. I just took it to Chamonix, Fr and it held up solid in both instances. I was incredibly warm on the mtn with just a base layer in single digit temps. I'm 6'5", slim build, and the Large is a perfect fit in both length and chest. Couldn't be happier with this purchase.

I love this coat
After moving to the Windy City of Chicago, I needed a down parka that would be both comfortable and stylish. This coat completely fits the bill, and provides excellent warmth. The insulated hood is highly functional, as are the fleece lined pockets. My only complaint is that there aren't quite enough pockets to satisfy me - just 2 hand pockets and 1 left chest pocket, with no extra pockets on the inside of the coat. But the coat also looks GREAT - I can wear it with business casual or formal attire. It looks more like a coat than any other winter jacket I've owned. Also, regarding my pockets comment, the minimal number of external pockets definitely helps the style and look of the coat. I can tell that the coat is high quality, and it has stood up to the elements during Chicago winter. The fit is also wonderful - I'm 5'8", 165, medium build, and the Medium fits me perfectly.

Great Coat (so far)
I've only had the Downtown Coat for a few weeks but so far, so good. We just had our first real cold and snow in Chicago and the coat kept me warm. It is a big coat but it fits perfectly without too much extra bulk. The hood works well but can zip off when not needed and the coat is long enough to cover your rear - which are both benefits to me.

Great, warm coat!
I ordered this to replace a peacoat which wasn't doing very much to keep me warm. This has made a complete difference! When I'm wearing it, I can't feel any cold breeze coming through. In fact, while wearing it in 30 degree weather, I even felt kinda hot. I'm about 5'10", 190 and the large fits me perfectly. Definitely glad I ordered this coat. I have no complaints about it so far!

Husband loves it!
I ordered this for my husband for his birthday and now that the cold weather is here, he absolutely loves it. It's extremely warm, very well made and many of his male friends compliment him on his coat. Highly recommned!
