Pros Comfortable, heavily featured, stylishDurable, clean looking, warm, weather resistantWarm, weather resistant, very stylishFashionable, warm, weatherproofWarm, long hem
Cons Not very warm, marginally weather resistant“Crinkly” shell fabricLight on featuresExpensive, controversial hoodBulky, small hood
Bottom Line This is a basic winter jacket, cut short. The short cut is less fashionable in recent times, but still has its placeCrème de la crème of winter coats, this model outperformed the others overallA stylish long-hemmed parka with excellent warmth and weather resistanceA good choice for staying warm and looking good, but you'll have to fork over a hefty chunk of cashExtreme cold weather protection with a relatively affordable price tag
