I have been wanting the triple c for 3 years now and finally bought one last month. It is the best coat purchase I've ever made! I have been wearing skirts to work and only one layer last week with temps ranging from single digits to low 30's here in Chicago and this coat has kept me nice and toasty. The thing I really love about this coat is that it so so light-weight. So it keeps you warm with not all the weight of most winter coats. I'm seriously thinking about ordering one in vintage white - I bought black the first time.
