I consider this to be the perfect coat. I recently wore it on -10 snowy day at Mt. Tremblant. With a light layer underneath, I remained warm and dry. I love the seam sealed zippers, the attached insulated hood that also covers a helmet, the high collar that seals out the cold, and the inner sleave with thumb holes. The sleaves are wide enough to tuck gloves or mittens into, the powder skirt seals out the cold and the looks are really sharp. The material is tough, yet not stiff. I also recently skiied on a 40 degree day with this coat. Opened the considerable mesh pit zips and I was comfortable. Rugged, warm, dry, stylish, and extremely functional. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention - price. I consider this coat to be an exceptional value when compared to other brands. Well done.
