Comments about Woman Within The Arctic Parka:

Very disappointed in this purchase. Ordered this coat, the shorter version for winter. Had to wait for over a month because it was on back order, which I knew. When it finally came I could not believe how heavy it was. Physically putting this coat on is a challenge. I ordered a size larger than my normal size figuring I wear bulkier clothes in winter and I wanted room to move. Evening ordering a size up, this coat was tight even with just jeans and tee shirt on. In addition, I am short, 5'1" and the coat hung down far too low for me. The drawstring waist is below my waist and the pockets are way down on my thighs. I can't even get my hands in them when the coat is on. Trying to get in an out of the car is difficult because there is just too much coat. I was also disappointed in the quality. There were loose threads all over the inside of the coat and the buttons were all loose, after only unbuttoning them once, when I first received the coat. About the only plus side is that the coat is warm. Were it not for the fact that I was in dire need of a winter coat, I would have returned it.

    Comments about Woman Within The Arctic Parka:

    The jacket is great for very cold weather but too heavy for milder temperatures. The jacket feels so heavy when I take it off the hanger - i can hardly lift it. I don't feel the weight as much when I have it on but it would be too much to take off and carry around (like at a museum or store). I would have to opt for a lighter jacket.

    Comments about Woman Within The Arctic Parka:

    I loved the look and style of the parka. Because I travel very much, I felt the weight of the parka was too much to deal with in packing and hauling around. Additionally, the parka takes up too much space when trying to put into a suitcase or overhead bin. I loved the inside pockets and many things about the parka and would love to have one that is lighter weight but just as warm.

              This is easily the warmest coat I've ever owned. I live in Michigan and I received this coat during one of the coldest Winters I've ever experienced. It's warm, the sleeves are long enough and they have a knit extended cuff inside to stop the cold air. The hood is gigantic (and removable) to keep out the worst wind. It's so big, actually, that it almost keeps me from seeing where I'm walking. ;) It's a pretty color, long enough. Pockets are lined with warm fleece. Zipper is sturdy, and you have buttons too. Faux fur is soft. I could not be happier.

                          This coat advertised in catalog as a thinsulate coat. To me that meant a thinner wind ressistant jacket. The jacket was very bulky. If anyone has seen "A Christmas Story" I felt like the little kid in the snow suit where he could not move easy or put his arms down. I ended up returning this product.

                              I have gained a lot of weight over the last few years and have not been able to find a warm jacket. What I have found is fine for going back and forth from the car to a warm building. I wanted to be able to walk outside for exercise in the winter and also go with my kids sledding etc. This is the first jacket I found that fits and is warm. It's pretty bulky so I'd only wear it outdoors in really cold weather (which this winter has provided way to much of) :) Thanks for having such a warm coat in a big size ...I appreciate it. Hopefully next year I'll be buying a smaller one :)

                                  The coat is way to heavy. I thought thinsulate was suppose to be light. The zipper is so long and difficult to use. It takes forever to line it together so that it will zip. So I tried buttons when I could not zip the coat and already the buttons are falling off. They were sew on very poorly. I am 5'4" ,so to anyone my height or shorter I would not suggest this coat.

                                      This coat is very heavy, I order up 2 sizes from what I normally would order to get a fit. I don't like the double zipper and that it is so heavy it feels hard to move in. Very warm though.

                                      Never got to really use this product as it had a defective zipper. I have returned it.

                                            Purchased one size up so I could layer clothes underneath. It's a bit big but it's what I expected it to be. I can gather it up around the waist and cuffs to make it more fitted but still have room. The jacket is very warm and comfortable. It's well made and the pepper red color is very rich looking and vibrant. Am getting a lot of use out of it on these 20-30 degree nights and mornings here.

                                              I am an apple shaped 5'9", 330 lb woman. I wear a 34/36. I bought this coat in a size 34/36 and it is a very good fit for me. Length is excellent, sleeve length fits just right. The fit across bust, shoulders and back is good leaving enough room to cross, raise and stretch my arms without it being tight and constricting. I especially like the thumb holes on sleeve. The Sherpa lined pockets are a true prize! keeps hands warm. I bought the red which is a really pretty red. The fur collar looks really nice with the red coat and black buttons. I am extremely pleased with this purchase.
