Awesome coat! Replacing my 14 year old EB Expedition series down coat. This is the newer version of the warmest coat I've ever owned. The waterproofing/weatherproofing has greatly improved over my old coat. Keeps me warm and dry when ice fishing, hunting, or snow-blowing here in Michigan. Outer material seems sturdy and tear resistant. The velcro is a bit noisy and automatically grabs every time you open a pocket or zip the coat closed (only a negative when used for hunting). All in all a great value. Highly recommend this coat for anyone who spends any time out in the frigid winter weather of the northern states or Canada.
