There are a few things about this coat that I wish I'd known before I bought it. 1) it is not particularly waterproof. After walking home from work in it for 20 minutes, it breached in several places. The rain wasn't even that heavy. 2) the zips on the sleeves are placed on the inside and therefore, if you go to brush your hair away from your face, it gets snagged in it and you have to rip your hair out to release yourself. Other than these 2 points, the coat is very warm, well-fitting and I have received many compliments as it is very stylish.
