The fact that the model isn't wearing the hood in the photos is telling. The hood is absurd. The faux fur around it isn't even even, and it's so big, I can barely see while wearing it. It would be handy if you were stuck in a blizzard and didn't need to see. It is removable but still seems like a waste. Also, the zipper was hard to work and after I zipped it, it began unzipping from the bottom, indicative of a cheap zipper (the coat is actually too big vs too small, so it was the fault of the zipper vs me). Very disappointed. I'd like to order a different coat from Noize but hesitate because I'm concerned I'll encounter the same issues along with another $8 restocking fee.
