I live in Chicago and although I didn't get this jacket until March, we still have had plenty of cold days and it has held up. The belt is cheap looking and feeling so I don't use it, but it the jacket still looks great w/o it. I would say this runs small- I'm normally a medium in everything and this jacket is borderline too tight but I think if I ordered a size up it would be too loose looking. I have long arms and the sleeves are *JUST* long enough. I had an issue with some stuffing coming out of the bottom seam around my legs & tread coming loose from the quilting in the arms but the Noize customer service team was willing to work w me to find a solution. Overall happy with my purchase and have recommended them to others.
The coat is super warm and a great fit!
It’s also really stylish! (The coat itself is a bit heavy, but a reasonable trade-off for the warmth!!)
