This jacket is very warm, and I like the zips under the arms to keep cool. It has a thick fleece lining and a nice weight to the jacket in general. The thing I don't like about this jacket is the hood. The fur is really ugly, but luckily it zips off. The hood itself (minus the fur) is a little small. I have a pretty small head but a ridiculous amount of hair that I like to wear in a bun. The hood doesn't really allow space at the back for loads of hair. You have to really pull on the adjustable cords on either side to get decent coverage. I also don't like cuffs on the inside of the sleeves. It has a white elasticated kind of cuff attached to the inside of the jacket, which may take a while to get used to, particularly if you like to wear long sleeved tops as it may ride up a little. The outer fabric isn't that good a quality. It looks a little plasticky and smells a bit fishy to be honest. I bought mine elsewhere and am contemplating sending it back, but really can't make up my mind as it's such a warm coat.
