Rated 5 out of 5Â by ames110 Terrific Rain Jacket
This is a terrific, well-made parka jacket; it was clearly made to last a long time. It's more heavy duty than a windbreaker but not so much that it's bulky. It rolled up and fit nicely in my carry-on Longchamp for travel, with plenty of space left in the bag for my other things. I especially love the details on this jacket - many of which you cannot see just from looking at the pictures. For instance, the pockets where you put your hands are fleece-lined, which was a pleasant surprise and a major perk! The zipper is a bit cumbersome, but the buttons/snaps are nice. If you are on the fence about this jacket, buy it before it's sold out! I know this will be in my closet for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by sheselectric Love at first sight! Great detailing!
I absolutely love this jacket, it's perfect! The detailing is amazing. I love the zipper, pockets, plaid lining etc.... It fit a little bigger than I expected but I don't think a smaller size would have made a difference ( I usually wear my jackets super fitted). I purchased navy in xs .... I've owned this jacket for less than a month and have received several compliments.... I'm definitely happy with this jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by furmanmcd Great for tough weather
Not extremely warm, but it is great for wind and rain. The zipper is a little tough, but the snap buttons are really convenient and I use those more often than the zipper anyways.

This jacket exceeded my expectations. The materials are noticeably heavy duty and there are tons of hidden details. It's obvious that Penfield expects you to own this piece for a lifetime. Why else would they provide extra snaps and rivets? This jacket doesn't just look great but is fully functional. Well worth the price even at full price.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MichelleP Great jacket, love color red + details
Ordered the red in small which would be my usual size. I'm 5ft 6" (135lbs). I'm narrow in the hips + shoulders so the snug hips comment was ok for me but I noticed not particularly roomy in hip area.
Great attention to detail as others mention.
I also have long arms & length is JUST ok in the small. I can fit a sweatshirt & still feels comfortable to move around.
Overall very happy with it so far :)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Victoriya Love this parka
The parka arrived very quickly and was exactly as I expected it. Very comfortable. I felt looking very much in place when walking in a forest and also on a busy downtown street.
I love the attention to the details - for example the laces ends are finished in metal, the thing I haven't seen for years. Lots of pockets, even one on the back - like a backpack.
I found the fit true to the size, snug on hips - which is good for windy cool weather.
I took one star off for the comfort because the zipper is a bit tricky and because the sleeves lining is made of polyester which makes me sweat when the parka is completely closed.
But the good thing is - the parka is completely waterproof! Went out in rain without an umbrella and was completely dry and fine.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by rickyricardo great fall coat!
This red color is superb and the quality is amazing. Penfield's reputation doesn't lie. I got a small and it's a little long on my 5'3" frame, but the general fit is pretty good.
