This coat is exactly what I was looking for in a winter coat. It's very warm (would not wear it outside if it was over 50 degrees) and blocks the wind well, without a lot of bulk. The length is great, especially in the back and covers high boots to completely block the rain. The only slight drawback is that the hood with the fur is very big and without a hat easily blocks the view from each side. Overall, I would highly recommend it.
