I have a mixed feeling about this coat. On one hand, it is stylish, very light and breathes well, which are important qualities to me. On the other hand, it's not as warm as I was hoping, it fits too tight around the waist, and most importantly has poor quality stitching. The stitching started to come off about a week from the purchase of my first coat. A month after a replacement, it's coming off again in a different area. I still like the coat overall and intend to keep it, but at this point am frustrated about such flimsy quality stitching. I have only used this coat for gentle wearing to town mainly, never for high impact wear outdoors, so cannot understand why it's so unsturdy. Patagonia, please look into switching to a higher quality and more durable thread for such an expensive coat.
