To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It’s a thick coat and would keep you dry and warm BUT the sizing chart is off. I studied the chart and ordered what I thought was the correct size for me but it is very big. Very generous sizing. I would say size 12 order the small.
This would be a very light winter jacket, unsuitable for Canadian winters.
One of the leather stop-tabs on the waist drawstring was missing on delivery.
But perhaps the worst drawback is the sizing I ordered the largest available which, according to both the Amazon sizing conversion chart AND the Asian manufacturer's size conversion information, should have been plenty big was woefully too small ... like by about 12" across the bust! So will have to return the jacket, but go into hospital for surgery tomorrow and probably won't get back home for at least a couple of months. So I will miss the deadline for returning my purchase and will just have to swallow the financial loss.
J'avais lu les commentaires et je m'étais dit que j'allais prendre plus grand ... Au final je me suis ramasser avec un manteau légèrement trop grand je porte habituellement du médium et j'aurais dû prendre du médium lol. Heureusement qui on mis un cordons au niveau du ventre donc ces pas si mal. J'habite au Québec et jusqu'à maintenant il me tien bien au chaud 😊 le capuchon est ajustable contrairement au commentaire. Quelque petit fil de couture qui dépassait mais pas très grave. Tu a un coupe vent au niveau des hanches. Le poil du capuchon s'enlève pour laver et sécher le manteau. Le poil du capuchon avait un odeur étrange mais après lavage ces correct.
Perks of the jacket: warm, suitable for -30C weather, very large hood that fits over sweaters and hats, the wind skirt is great and fits me well as I’m curvy and have wide hips.
Cons: hood doesn’t stay up that well in severe wind so you have to hold it up, the outside of the pockets had ripped and I had to take it all off so I didn’t get caught on it, some parts weren’t properly sewn so I had to fix them upon arrival
I’m a dog walker so I’m out daily in all sorts of weather and this jacket is amazing. I was nervous of the sizing but it fit perfectly and has enough room to layer underneath if you want. I wear it with or without layers and it’s been warm for me. I love how big the hood is because it fits over my head and hat with room to spare. You so have to hold it up as the front is super heavy when it’s windy but otherwise it’s a fantastic hood. Almost a 5/5 as there were some cosmetic damage and the pockets had to be picked at otherwise it looks cheap. Good price for a great coat!
I bought this jacket and was concerned after reading some reviews as I live in a little mountain town in northern bc so I need a warm jacket during the winter. I tested it out this weekend with -30f with -20 something wind chills and I had no problems with staying warm. Mind you I wasnt out in the cold for longer than 15 minutes but the time I was outside it withstood alot of cold wind and temperature! All in all I'm impressed.
I have enjoyed wearing this jacket all winter. It has been both warm and waterproof and has worked perfectly for my British Columbian winter.
This coat is more utilitarian than fashionable it’s very straight in the middle and not very flattering. I also found the hood to be a little too big I couldn’t see properly with it on. Still worked perfectly for my needs kept me warm,dry and comfortable.
My husband bought me this coat about 2 winters ago (we share an Amazon account, excuse the name) and it’s probably the best coat I’ve ever had. I’m 5’4 and was 145 when I got this and ordered a small. It kept me warm through a pregnancy and still fit, although the last month I couldn’t zip it up but it served me well until that point, and is still in great shape this year. Has kept me warm on hour long walks, playing in the snow etc with not even a sweater underneath. The only thing I will say is that the Velcro for the cover strip for the zipper does catch on the warm of Your coat while you’re doing something which over time has created a bit of a rough,mangled patch on the arm of the coat. Overall for the price I’d say a great catch. Will buy myself a brand new one for next winter. Also, I did see reviews about this being a bulkier coat and that was not my experience, if I ever felt it wasn’t shapely I adjusted and tightened the strings around the mid section of the coat.
I love this coat. I is warm and comfortable. The end of the sleeves have a unconventional shape that wraps around you hand to keep it warmer and I love that. However it is tight at the bottom and doesn't fit around my hips properly (would need an XL to fit) and the waist drawstring doesn't hold very well. Other than that it is a great ski jacket or walking-the-dog coat.
