    COMMENTS:

    I knew I was going to be spending a lot of time outside in the last week of January 2014. It was time for a new coat. The daytime highs in St. Paul, MN were below zero (F) and the wind chills were -20 to -40. My Goose Down Whaleback Snorkel Parka exceeded expectations. It was truly wind-proof. The wrist seals and draw strings kept the breeze out, allowing me to stay warm without layering up beyond street clothes and a light vest. The pockets are functional and plentiful and the lining is warm without being bulky. The coat is easy to wear and does not ride up or restrict movement when driving a car. As others have mentioned, the double zipper can be tricky at times but this is totally manageable. This is now my go-to coat when the temperature drops below 10F.

    Good but not Great

    By TC

    from Tulsa, OK

    About Me Avid Adventurer

    Pros

    • Tall Collar And Good Hood
    • Waterproof
    • Windproof

    Cons

    • Terrible Pockets

    Best Uses

      COMMENTS:

      A good coat but not great. The hood and collar are great. The heavy duty fabric is great. It fits great and looks great.
      HOWEVER it is not good for anything below about +20F, because it does not have enough down, it does not have true hand warmer pockets and you loose too much heat through the under arm vent zippers.

      The hand pockets are TERRIBLE. If this coat had true hand warmer pockets it would be fantastic.

      Hand warmer pockets must be cut through the insulation so you get body heat to your hands and must be very large and cut at the right angle so that your cuff seals up against the pocket opening. NO coat can be rated for -20 without true hand warmer pockets.

        COMMENTS:

        I bought this jacket for my niece's Christmas gift. She's a farm kid from northern MN who spends her days out in the barn taking care of a menagery of critters. Winter chores are especially cold and miserable on the farm. She's been describing her dream work coat for years: tough, weather proof, plethora of utillitarian pockets, great adjustments for a good fit. After a long search online, I wasn't certain I'd ever find her ideal coat. A friend turned me on to Duluth Trading and sure enough, here it was! When my niece opened her Christmas gift, she was so thrilled. It was perfect. She finds something new to love about it daily. It's everything she hoped it would be and more. But there is just one problem with the coat... she's says it's just too nice to wear in the barn! :)

        COMMENTS:

        Wore once in very cold--low teens--temperature with wind, with a sweater, and I was comfy. Lightweight (with goose down and feathers) is a big plus for me. Only quibble: the outside slant pockets have an opening that is a tad too small for large gloved hands.

          Bought parka in my size and the fit was tight. Problems with zipper, hard to start into slider and to zip up. Out in 20 degree weather and I felt cold. Returned for larger size. Replacement still had problem with zipper. Might consider another parka.
