This is the second parka I have purchased from Eddie Bauer, my first one being 10 years old and only now experiencing wear and tear issues. The quality of the product is excellent and at the sale price is 100% worth the investment. I needed something longer for additional warmth for Ontario winters and this coat has more than stepped up to the challenge. The features of my older parka that I wish were on this version are: an exterior breast pocket with a zipper, a hood that cinches in 2 directions (around and back), a zipper on the interior breast pocket (velcro is just not secure enough and shows where attention to detail is lacking) and adjustable cuffs to really keep out the cold. The pockets are in a bit of a bad spot for sitting down but, perfectly fine for walking. Perhaps in the future if they were put on an angle instead of straight up and down, this may remedy that issue. However, despite those preferences wearing this coat feels like being wrapped up in warm, cozy blanket which is exactly what I needed against the -30C winds.
