Women's Winter Woods Hooded Microfiber Parka
Well its a nice coat and its warm.
I just wish this coat was smaller. The sleeve length is way too long. I have to have the larger size...I ordered the xl because the Large is usually to tight. So I go with the XL because I want it roomy but this coat is pretty big. I kept it....because I needed a warm "car coat." I just wish it would have been a little smaller and not so long in the sleeves.

Soft and colorful to keep warm
Coat is as expected, warm and soft in a lovely color ordered (teal) to add to my regular coats. Liked the longer length/ Great for sports or errands!

Not as expected
I was disappointed in the jacket received. I should have taken other reviews more seriously. 1) the color not as vivid as the catalog or on-line - it looks very faded. 2) the fur around the hood is not at all as pictured - very cheap looking and just a strip of fur, not at all as full as pictured 3) the design of the jacket is not quite the same as pictured. Pictured it looks like at the waist an lapping detail to help define the waist where as the one I received does not have that - just a seam for the draw string. I am still debating if I will keep it and wear without the hood or just return in. I am just very disappointed in this purchased jacket.

Photograph is misleading; product is okay
I have two of these microfiber parkas now. One, is the one which I just purchased. The other is just like it, only it is at least five years old.
The catalog photograph looks exactly like....the five-plus-year-old parka.
Today's parka has a hood with a markedly different appearance, although the body of the parka is much the same.
If I want to wear a winter coat which looks just like the product photograph in the catalog, this is what I will do: I will unfasten the detachable hoods on each parka, and switch them around, so that the new, freshly bought body of the parka is attached to the old hood. Not every customer has that option.

Fake, cheap, tacky fur not as pictured in catalog.
Disappointed that "fake" fur on hood looks so cheap & tacky.

Color,texture,detachable hood: great.
I like the color a LOT. The texture of the fabric is also to my liking. Having a hood that detaches is also great, but the "fur" trim on it is a little narrow, could be more luxurious as parkas were back in the 60
s and 70's.
The parka runs a bit large, but at least that allows even larger women than me to have a chance to wear your clothes more often.
I'd prefer sleeve ends that are not gathered, but are instead looking like plain hemmed ends, squared off, which makes the parka a bit more dressy. I like to let gloves do that insulating work. I'm ready to try it out this weekend during the coldest time of the US Midwest year: NOW!

Perfect for Montana winters
I had this coat in the purple color and wore it for years. The zipper end finally gave out, so I ordered the same coat in teal. It is the perfect weight yet keeps me warm in our harsh winter. I love the hood with its super-soft "fur" edging. Great tailoring and nice detail.
