This jacket is simply the best. super warm, cozy, and fashionable. The details are very high end and quality is superb for the price. a few stitches were a little off near the zipper but nothing terrible. i wore it while shopping and had to take it off because i was sweating. one question i have is about waterproofing.
I bought this for my HUSBAND and its perfect in every way. He looks like a super model wearing it! Super waRm which will be great for chicago winters.
Last Winter my girlfriend ordered herself a NOIZE jacket and it felt like she didn't take it off all winter. Simultaneously I was busy sewing my own jacket so I wasn't worried about getting a new jacket at the time. It wasn't until halfway through the season that I realized my handmade jacket didn't block the wind. BUt i was halfway through the winter season and didn't want to spend money on a new coat, or admit defeat. She told me to go buy a jacket but I waited it out. Spring came and it was out of my mind.
This fall the weather changed and the first day I went on Noize and bought this parka because it has the softest interior I could find. I got it a few days later and immediately knew this is the nicest coat i've ever owned. It's well made, its weight is enough to feel durable without being heavy. The Faux leather is soft and the zipper is solid. The faux fur is super soft and goes down to about Mid-back and wraps all the way around. The interior pocket is large and easy to get things in and out and magnetic closure on the exterior pockets feels fancy! The hood, when I have it on, is just as wind blocking, fancy, and warm as the rest of the coat.
It gets windy where I live and I went for a walk at 30f with 15mph gusts and had no issues with airflow. I haven't had the chance to wear it in actual cold or snow but I'm excited for winter because I get to really try out this parka! I can also wear it inside while I'm waiting for my girlfriend and i don't overheat.
Obviously I'm excited but lemme give you the cons. #1 the Hand pockets have a zipper that's a little scratchy on my hands when I put them in. #2 It could use another pocket but I like alot of pockets, In my custom jacket I have 5 oversized pockets.
I love this Parka, if you're debating it, buy it. If you're going to antarctica, don't listen to me.
If you have any questions, I'd love to help!-@Regularveteran
