The North Face Women's Arctic Parka
Bought this coat purely for going on vacation in colder places but have been so impressed with it I am wearing it whenever I get the opportunity .
I wanted a coat that did not look as if I had my duvet wrapped round me and this coat ticks the box as it's a lovely snug fit with shape, it's also been worth it's weight in gold with the rain we've had.

An excellent purchase, very cosy, great features, being able to unzip from the bottom allows you to sit comfortably in the coat whilst keeping you wrapped up and warm. One of the smartest down filled jackets I could find. Being able to adjust the hood would be good, the hood is slightly large and can hang over your eyes. I think the fit is slightly on the small side. All in all a great coat I am very happy with my purchase.

Love my new coat!
They say there's no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing.
This coat prooves that. You can throw any weather at me and I'm still warm, dry and cosy.

A great all-rounder
Very versatile - looks smart for commuting into work in London, whilst also being perfect for extreme wet and cold weather, as well as simply being out and about with the kids. Provides the look and warmth of a down coat whilst the waterproof finish makes it very practical, smart looking and easy to clean. This is my first down coat and it is great whether it is just slightly cold or very frosty/ snowing - never felt boiling hot in it. I went for a smaller size/ more fitted look, as it appears smarter and am very pleased with it - even when it is very cold you don't have to wear lots of layers underneath, as is often the case with cheaper materials. Very high quality - I think it will be a staple for many years and because of the simple design it shouldn't date.

A stylish, hardworking friend
I bought this jacket to go husky sledding in Lapland. I had my doubts about its hardiness and worried that it looked too much like a city coat to take the pace in the -25 degree temperatures predicted. The first few days on the trail I borrowed a sno-suit from the sledders, and went about feeling heavy and constrained. On day three I decided to try out my coat and was totally amazed at its performance. It is light to wear, but amazingly warm. The length is perfect for sitting down on cold surfaces, the snug fit around the waist made sure no cold air got in, and the hood could be extended right out to protect my face from snow and rain. I wore ski pants and woollen underwear on the bottom half.
I wore this jacket every day for twenty days in all sorts of weather (including wild wind and rain), finding the inside pocket perfect for passport and money, the two chest pockets excellent for maps and tickets, and the main pockets carried gloves, phone and camera with ease.
If you want to be warm, comfortable and dry, and still look good... this is the coat for you.

Article north face
This cost is really cosy,zip not too clever but I can wear it with light clothes underneath and it's like being in bed, toasty.

Value for money
I thought this was quite expensive at first but with the current mixture of wet & cold weather it's worth every penny. Quite a flattering fit even with layers underneath.
