    COMMENTS:

    Could use an extra row of stitching near the zipper so the lining fabric wouldn't get caught in the zipper. Other than that I love this coat. Very warm in our Minnesota winter.

    COMMENTS:

    I bought this coat based upon its claim of being great in cold and wet weather. I am still waiting to see what it can do. Here it is late November in Atlanta and we have experienced weeks of temperatures in 70'sand no rain for the past 32 days. However the coat appears to be well made. When I buy a coat I need it to last for years. I believe it should stand up for years to come. My only wishes is that the zipper was better and it was a bit more stylish. Overall it appears to be a good coat.

        I will know better after 1 season of cold. Right now I'm really happy to have it. I will layer with Duluth insulated overalls and a souped up sweatshirt.

        COMMENTS:

        I picked this jacket up 2 years ago because when I walk to work the area I walk through is really windy. This jacket is perfect for walking here. I put the put the hood up and barely notice the wind, snow, or rain whipping by.
        However there are 2 design features that drive me crazy. The first is when the hood is down the stiff front hood/zipper area stands up and the corner pokes me in the mouth, sometimes my left eye when sitting down. It is hard to keep the area down. The second and a reason I may return it is the placement of the pocket zipper that is located out side of the main zipper, but inside the flap that covers the zipper. When I zip up my jacket the zipper usually stops at the same height as the pocket zipper. When I go to unzip the jacket I almost always grab the pocket zipper first. I then unzip the pocket, then I zip up the pocket, followed by feeling around for the jacket zipper unzipping it and finally remove myself from the jacket. THIS DRIVES ME CRAZY.
        I really like this jacket, I would not recommend this jacket just for this reason. If Duluth trading fixes this defect I would recommend it to everyone I know,
