CANADIANATCORNELL from Ithaca, NY
I have been on the hunt for a practical, but stylist parka.
I am so tired of coats that don't cover my butt and give me
a chill. I order several from other companies, and ended up
returning them for one reason or another. After reading
reviews, I finally bit the bullet and bought this one in
black. I AM SO IN LOVE. It's exactly what I was looking for,
and feminine, flattering, not too long, and also does the
trick walking around the snowy/icy/cold campus at Cornell.
Hurray! I finally have a winner that I won't be returning.
STILLFREEZING from Indianapolis
I was excited to finally get a North Face Coat so I would be
WARM as the winter has been somewhat brutal out here in
Indiana this year. My old Eddie Bauer Lodge Parka was
shedding terribly and again time for a replacement, so I
figured I would spend the $$ on a good parka and it would
last more than the Eddie Bauer's 1 season stint. I was
sorely disappointed. I bought the small and it fits
perfectly, however the coat is NOT warm! I went outside
several times hoping it was just me but the cold goes right
through the sleeves and shoulders. There is also a patch in
the back around the elastic that is cold as well. I left the
tag on and will be returning. It is sad. Such a nice, pretty
coat! It is sad that my beat up Eddie Bauer, which is
shedding feathers everywhere, is still warmer. I don't see
any store that has another in my size and color to see if
perhaps I received a dud, so I guess I will have to be
returning for my $ back.
KATIEMARIE33 from Undisclosed
I like this jacket better than the Venture jacket. Though
both jackets are lightweight, the Resolve has a mesh lining
and the Venture does not. As a result, the Venture sticks to
your skin and it's like wearing a trash bag. The only
complaints I have are that it doesn't have a fabric "hook"
for hanging and that the hood adjustment cords do not have a
plastic piece to keep them in place. Customers should know
this jacket runs a bit small. Only order a larger size if
you plan to wear bulky items underneath. If wearing a thin
layer or t-shirt, normal size should be fine.
