I bought this coat to replace a shorter down-filled one that has lost a lot of its "puff", and I wanted one without a down filling this time. I got the khaki colour and is it very dark but a nice change from black, which is the usual colour I choose for coats. The zipper seems to be of better quality and sturdier than zippers on other coats I've bought from Penningtons. The length is perfect - much cosier than a short coat. I really like the fleece-lined pockets and the elasticized inner cuff. The coat is a generous fit - I could have gone down a size but prefer it roomier for layering sweaters and hoodies underneath. Overall, a very good coat for the cold months.
