I bought this to replace a well-loved similar-style jacket (also from Free Country) that I had originally purchased seven years ago. I love the multiple functionality of this jacket! I think I got more use out of the layers independently as the outer layer is wonderful for rainy days and the inner layer is great for cool mornings. When wearing both layers together, it is very warm yet not overly bulky. I also love the zippered pockets and the relative ease in transitioning from one jacket into two (and back again). As far as sizing, make sure to read the sizing guide and if trying to decide between two sizes, go for the larger one. Otherwise the inner layer may be a bit too snug. My only criticism is that I would love to see more variety of colors for this jacket or maybe even a mix-and-match feature where the buyer could select the colors of both the inner and outer jackets.
A plus size coat that was meant to be used actively!
I am a bigger girl who has even bigger arms. Finding a plus size jacket that is so versatile was exciting. So, I am glad I ordered the 3x even though I normally wear a 2x with short sleeves so I could wear a sweater underneath. The liner felt very nice and the shell appeared to be fairly reasonable. I did get dripped on during my day outside and was snowed on and the jacket shed water nicely, beading and running off. There was no wind to test the windproof of it. A note of interest: I have had several coats and could not zip them up due to my hourglass shape. It seems ones I could would not allow me to sit down because they fell right at my fanny line. This jacket I could sit in with it zipped up, which was new for me. I felt in the Idaho winter weather that was thrown my way today, this jacket was a GREAT addition to my winter arsenal! Can't wait to take it back country skiing and snowshoeing!
This coat fit my daughter-in-law perfectly, and just loves the color; she is now ready to hit the slopes and cannot wait! Free Country has done a fantastic job of taking care of our needs in getting her a coat....thank you!!
I absolutely love this jacket! It is roomy enough to put some layers of clothing underneath without feeling confined. The colors are fabulous and the pockets are deep and well protected with the zippers. Oh by the way, did I mention the inner is warm and comfy. I just can't say enough great things about this coat.! Love, love, love, love, love this coat!!!!!
I just received this jacket and I was impressed with it right away! The styling is very flattering for all figures, the fit is perfect, and the details are high quality! This jacket will be great for the Colorado winters! Shipping was also extremely fast!
This is a nice ski jacket. I ordered the white. It's hard to see online, but it has a subtle grey design on the fabric. The pocket on the lower left sleeve is a bonus. Overall, a great value for this comfortable, warm jacket.
Love the Whisper Blue color (it is more of a minty green in person). Thank you for making plus-sized ski-wear that isn't black, and looks feminine!
The outside chest pocket is convenient, but I wish it was a bit deeper. It is too small to hold my iPhone6, but big enough to hold my ID, money, and a chapstick.
I ordered up a size, so the jacket is too big for me, but I wore it skiing and could move my arms freely, and didn't get snow up my back when I fell!
It is a comfortable jacket and kept me warm all day. It is waterproof; the downside of that being that it isn't very breathable. I got pretty sweaty underneath wearing a thermal shirt and just the jacket shell (in sunnny 40 degree weather). Some venting would be nice but would probably drive the price up. Thanks for making plus sized ski-gear at such a great value!
