I got my boyfriend this down parka for Christmas during a winter coat sale. He loves the jacket, it is warm enough for him to wear just a t-shirt or henley without having to wear another sweater as well. The jacket has been great during Toronto's cold winter this year. The only downside is the velcro placement on the jacket pockets. Although there's a zipper side pocket, the velcro pockets are still useful but he finds the rough side of the velcro gets caught on his gloves and toque that he keeps in those pickets. They have also shred the cuffs to the point the threading has been taken off completely. He's only been wearing it since the end of December, 2018 and already we are looking to have it exchanged through Eddie Bauer's customer satisfaction guarantee in the fall. If the rough side of the velcro can be on the pocket and not on the flap, it would make a world of a difference and greatly keep the quality of the jacket for much longer.
