Do not waste your money on this coat.
I spent a lot of money hoping that I would finally have a really great winter coat, so I decided to go with my favorite company, 5.11. Turns out, I made a big mistake. This coat is not waterproof, at all. It absorbs moisture on contact.
I was totally surprised and thoroughly disappointed with this coat when my car got stuck in a blizzard and had to walk several blocks home. Got home and this thing was soaking wet after about 15 minutes in the snow.
Useless in the rain or snow.
My 5.11 rain jacket is phenomenal, so I didn't expect this coat to be a waste of over $250 dollars. I guess I'll buy a Columbia coat or something next time.
On the positive side, it is very warm and comfortable. It does great in the wind. The neck is very comfortable. Pockets are great. Inner liner is a great jacket on it's own, or with the outer shell.
I don't normally leave reviews, especially for 5.11 (as I probably have 50 5.11 products that are Grade A, top notch, 5 star products) but I spent a lot of money on this coat and never expected it to perform so poorly.
