The coat overall is made well and it keeps me warm on cold days. Temps have to be at least -5 C though, otherwise I get too hot wearing it. There are 2 design chances that would make it the perfect winter coat for me. First, I REALLY WISH THE HOOD WAS REMOVABLE, second, the zipper should be a 2 way zipper, and maybe (time will tell) of better quality. So far no problems with the zipper, but I think that it will have to be replaced after one or maybe 2 seasons. But again, its working fine for now. Been wearing the jacket daily for about two weeks in Temperatures ranging from -20 to -1.
