I love this coat. I live in southern Alabama and this year has been cold! This coat keeps you warm from the neck to your ankles. It is very light weight and does not make you look like a giant marshmallow. It is much warmer than the North Face down coat. I wear a Medium in sweaters, LLBean coats, and NF coats and this medium fits fantastic. I can wear heavy fleece and big sweaters underneath with no tightness. This is a great coat!! Shoebuy is a great place!
