I got this coat for my husband two weeks ago, and here's his review:
I just love this coat and give it 5 stars for the following reasons:
-I use it to bike to work daily in Chicago weather whenever temperatures are below 35degrees and I've already used it in 10degree. It is fantastic! I no longer need to layer and have a dress/undress ritual - I just wear a nice shirt (what I wear at work) and this coat and I' nice and warm, yet not overly (so I don't start sweating - granted my bike ride is only 2 miles). I will even bring it for skiing - typically I layer there with a gore-tex NorthFace shell, but on cold days (< 10 degrees), I'll use this jacket to ski in.
-The yellow works really well for bicycling safety, yet it is a mustard yellow and my fashion-conscious wife tells me the jacket looks even great. That's quite a compliment.
-I like the soft collar, the iPhone compartment, and the sturdiness of the zippers; the hood is great.
-Finally, the price is just great! I had been looking at similar North Face jackets in the store that cost $400 to $500.
-Bottom line: this is a fantastic jacket that I will have for at least 10 years.
