I was looking for a heavy thick jacket for extreme cold weather. This jacket was perfect and its price is very reasonable. An excellent product for a very attractive price
Fabric and stitching
Bought this jacket before heading to Kashmir for a winter trek and skiing. It was cold but I remained warm all through. Though the temp didnt go below -15. the jacket kept in warm. I even slept in it foregoing my sleeping bag for weight and volume constraints.
Absolutely awesome product. The outer shell is good and takes quite a hammering.
With all the abuse it went through not even a single tear or cut.
I bought this item online as I couldn't find this item in any of the store and I wanted it badly for Finland winter where it will go to -25 degree. I didn't check it until I reached Finland (was busy packing untill then). The zip was running in opposite direction . When I pull down it used to close and when I pull up it used to open. So I had to manual cut it and change the runner direction. But now the zip runners keeps falling down as I have opened the edges to change direction. I was carrying the hood along with the jacket and the button was loose and I don't know where I lost that in the airport. I can't afford to buy a another hood which cost like 1500 rupee or more here. It is too heavy almost weighs more than 750gms I believe (didn't weigh though). So if you are walking for long time with you might feel very heavy and your shoulders begin to ache.
But there are good things about it. I was able to walk easily at -17deg without any problem. It can take sudden cold wind and it can keep you warm at the same time it is breathable . (sweat). I would recommend this if you are going to place where you are going to see less than -10 deg and it can keep you still warm!!! I searched if there are other jackets which bear such cold weather. But couldn't find one. It can also take rain and heavy snow and it can keep you warm.
Suggestion: Check before you take it (zip , hood attachment ) and of course whether you can carry it on your shoulders. There are ligher version of the jackets another 1k more but they are very light weight. (not sure what temperature they can withstand.
Thanks for taking the time to share this feedback.
This jacket should be equipped with two sliders on the main zip, to allow you to open it from the bottom part of the way upwards as well as from the top all the way down.
This is because it is such a big, bulky warm jacket that it sometimes helps to be able to open from the bottom (to allow you to sit down more comfortably, for example). I hope that this second slider on the zip has not caused you any confusion?
Anyway, your zip is now somewhat worse for wear, so please don't hesitate to return to your store and explain to them the situation.

am pleased with the product,both the price,and the coat itself,am hoping will be as pleased when i start to wear it,in the winter
price,number of pockets
dont know yet if any yet,it being a winter coat
I am going on the positive reviews of others
I still have to wait for the winter
wait for the winter and I will let you know
Top coat , well worth the money, very warm, been out in it on the coldest day we've had this year and I was as warm as toast.
Does what it says on the tin, loads pockets.
Can't find any
This is a fairly hefty jacket. Unbelievably warm and waterproof with good room for mobility. Main draw backs for me are no drawstring or snow baffle on waist to hold warm / keep out wind and the top chest pockets are, for the zipped pockets not deep enough; for the stub fastened pockets, completely not required.
Would recommend this for winter walking at night. Far too warm for anything else.
Super warm and waterproof
Have not yet been able to test it to its full potential but i think it will be an asset come the next cold weather.
A substantial coat, feels great.
The weight of the coat
Yep I bought this just over 2 years ago and due to it being damaged by a third party I bought the updated version today. This is a good winter work jacket for me with plenty of pockets which is great. The only thing I noticed this time around was my old jacket was a L large size but this is now a XL
Great jacket meets all my needs
watch the sizes if you are a large then get an XL
Best coat I've ever bought! Ridiculously warm! Loads of handy pockets. A good looking parka
