Bernardo Packable Long Down Coat with Hood
Great coat so light weight!!!
This coat is made for travel!!! Great color in red very light weight easy to pack. I wouldn't go to Montana with it its for fairly 3light cold but its so easy to carry.
I was a bit apprehensive to buy a puffer jacket, but when I saw this one on QVC I decided to go for it! It didn't look bulky like a lot of puffer coats I had seen in person in the stores. It is the perfect winter jacket for milder climates. I live in the PNW, so it doesn't get *really* cold here in the winter for long, so this lightweight puffer was perfect. Does not add very much bulk either! I'll be wearing this jacket for a few years for sure :)
Best coat ever!!!
I bought this for a trip to Italy. It's so comfortable because it weighs nothing yet it's still warm and windproof. Roomy enough to layer sweaters underneath, yet compressible enough to wear a waterproof long shell during a torrential downpour. And when it warmed up I rolled it into it's bag and tossed it in my tote. Didn't even wrinkle, which can be a problem for the jackets that stuff into an attached pocket. Traveling on airplanes, weight and space is an issue. This came in handy as a blanket and pillow too! It's definitely the most versatile coat I've ever owned. Living in Colorado it may not be warm enough for the below freezing temps but perfect for everything else.
Cute and Warm if temp is above 30 degrees
Like the fit and the color. I got it in red. Wish the sleeves had elastic cuffs and the hood had a drawstring. Wish I could use it for the cold Midwest winter but I have found to my discomfort that the coat is not useful as a winter jacket. The material seems to trap the cold wind and transfers the cold from the outside to the inside. I haven't sent it back but I have learned not to wear it when it gets too cold.
I now have this coat in grey and brown, and very disappointed that the black, which I'd love to order, is sold out in my size. It not only packs exactly as stated, but it's actually as warm as a much heavier coat. Recommend highly. And please reorder black, so that I can order a third!!
Perfect for travelling
I bought this for a trip to Seattle this winter, and it was perfect. I knew we were only packing carry-on, so I wanted the packability. It was warm, easy to put in the little bag, and did not add any extra bulk. We had some rain, of course, and it worked well as a raincoat. The only think I wanted was the zipper to open from the bottom, but I must say it is one of the easiest zippers I've every used -- you can zip it on with gloves on! I went up one size to a 2x because I have heavy upper arms and wanted to wear a sweater underneath (that's all I took on my trip for warmth -- a sweater and this jacket). That was a good decision. I am 5'1" tall and the length of the sleeves and the jacket was good.
I was extremely disappointed by this product. I read the reviews and most were positive.My image of what this coat was and what I received were way off. This reminds me of a $10.00 rain coat you can buy at Wal Mart. There is no substance to this coat. My son that is almost blind even said it looked funny and felt funny. It is going back!!!!
I Was Cold
I had been looking at this coat a very long time. Desided to buy the last day at featured price. Wore it one time , I was still cold in the car ( car was in the garage). Had to turn the heat on in the seat. Over priced. Down came out on clothing. I live in the south.
Love this Coat
I had my doubts that this coat would be warm. I wore it yesterday and it was cold with high winds and the coat was warm and comfortable. I highly recommend this coat!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE this coat! I purchased a black one for a December 2012 trip to Europe. Was just perfect for size, warmth (weather hovered around 45 degrees) and packability. My sister-in-law and my niece have since purchased them as well, same size and color. I'm happy to see that the coat is still here, as I will order another now for another niece.
I would have given it 5 stars but for the fact that the there are two inside flaps, which would have made excellent inside pockets, but for the fact that the bottom of the flap is not sewn down. (I saw this mentioned by another reader) My solution was to carefully tack it down by hand. Voila! This is the only way that I can distinguish mine from those of my niece and my sister-in-law!
Great Travel Coat
I purchased this as a travel coat for trips as I was attracted to the fact that it could be folded so small and weghs so little. I wore it this week as a trial to see if it was as warm as others had mentioned. Temperatures were in the 30s and I had on scrubs with short sleeves and felt very comfortable. Excited to have a coat for travel that won't take up much room or weight on vacations. Fits the bill!
Love this Coat!
I purchased this coat in black, size small, for a trip I was making to Denver. The size is generous, it kept me warm, and I love how easily it rolled up into the bag and into my purse. The hood stayed on when I wore it on a cold and windy day. Fabulous purchase, don't hesitate!!
