I love this coat! I bought it in October and it's now December, so I've had lots of time to try it out: a hurricane, a snow storm, and standing outside in line for over an hour on election day. This coat is stylish, it's warm, it's wind-proof, and it's rain proof. I have owned many winter coats that have disappointed me. And I have been on the search for a warm and stylish coat for quite some time. In the past I have owned North Face, Columbia, Burton, and other designer brand jackets which just did not cut it. For this purchase I was deciding between the Canada Goose and Nobis. The Nobis is a more stylish coat. It has more features. It's flattering and it's super warm (I am always cold). I love the thumb holes in the sleeves. It has a magnetic closure outside the zipper (instead of industrial velcro that can snag your clothes). The bottom is adjustable (to keep out drafts and creates an hour glass figure). The waist cinches. The over-sized hood is warm and fun. There are zippers under the arms, inside pockets, and an interior belt (for wind). It's a very nice fabric (not the typical parka material). And I have gotten so many compliments from strangers and friends! I'm 5'8", 125 pounds and the small fits me well. My only complaints are that the "grey" color is actually a green-grey. I was disappointed at first, but the color has grown on me. When I first opened the box it was night time and it looked a forest green (I thought they sent the wrong color). But the tag says grey (and I checked the Nobis website and it's not made in green). In the day light it appears more of a dark grey with green undertones. Also, I have long arms. I love the thumb hole feature, but on me they pinch. I could use an extra .5 to 1 inch longer in the sleeves. So I rarely use the thumb holes. It's a great coat and I know it will last a long time. This was my first Nobis purchase, but it won't be my last.Pros: Great design, Build quality
