I walk around campus all the time and needed a warm coat that would look nice. This coat does that and so much more. I'm 5'3" and it falls just before my knees- perfect for keeping wind out and covering the ends of dresses (no awkward ends peeking out!). It feels amazing on- the waist cinches in the tiniest bit so that you can actually feel like you're not a puffball (not like it's a problem in this coat, it is so feminine). The hood fits amazingly well (with room still for a hat, if you want). And the collar looks extremely chic. When the weather got up to 45-50º and rainy, I separated the coats and used the outer trench. It was very water and wind proof. The under coat's diamond stitching erases the puff effects and I love wearing it on its own too. For me, Patagonia did everything right. 3 different coats in one, and a cut that will be trendy forever. Definitely worth the price! Buy it and you will have three new best friends for fall, winter, and spring.
