Centigrade Quilted Down Coat with Removable Hood
Although on the coldest days, I wear this coat, I find that the closures will not stay closed. The fact that this Centigrade coat had the closures was one of the main reasons why I chose it, but it doesn't stay closed. It is a warm coat but it does look undone when it is just flapping open. Also, I thought that the closures would be good for a quick way of fastening the coat but that doesn't work.
Better closures or even toggles would have been an upgrade for this coat.
Love the coat - hate the hardware
I have purchased many Centigrade coats and have generally had good luck with them. I expected the same from this coat. I do like the coat - the color, the fit, even the length was good for my purposes. But the outer metal clasps are the absolute worst! They do NOT stay closed, even though the coat fits perfectly. QVC, please, please get better quality hardware for this coat.
I love this coat!
Nice surprise. It fits great and looks great. What more could I ask for. Thanks!
Like The Look, But The Quality...
I like the look of this coat and how light weight it is. The "vest" insert to keep warmer is a fantastic idea. However, the inside of grommets for the hook closures are unfinished and can scratch your skin, they do easily pop open on their own as someone else mentioned, and the zipper on the vest and pockets are so cheap, I'm afraid they'll break. I'm not sure if it's going back because it is a cute design, just not well made. I'm glad I paid clearance price for this, but honestly I still don't think it's even worth the clearance price. QVC, the quality of your in house merchandise leaves a lot to be desired. I won't be buying anymore items from your brands.
My neighbor has this coat in brown.. I try it on and I loved the way it fit me. So
I ask her where did you get your coat. She said I ordered it online from OVC.. She than
gave me all the information so I can order one for myself... I was so happy to
receive my coat, Its nice and light not bulk'y.
I ordered this coat last year and wore it through the 2011 winter months. I love the idea of this coat and it's warm enough BUT the zipper is cheap and the clip closures on the front of the coat won't stay closed. If I could put in a new zipper and add button holes so the coat would stay closed it would be a great coat.
could not believe it!
I am an early holiday shopper. I ordered and recieved this coat- it looked just like the picture...but I did not open it up to examine it...the second quiled lining only covers to the waistline...Now it's to late for me to return it..and the closure fixture keep poping open...I think that this one, I made a big mistake on...I would not recommend it to anyone!'

STYLISH, SLIMMING AND WARM
Just received this coat and although I do not write reviews, I wanted to share my overall rating of this stylish and warm coat. I am more than happy with my purchase. In other reviews, the zipper from the waist up seemed to be a negative and to me it is a great way to stay warm and not have all that bulk around the bottom. I am 5'3", weigh 118 lbs. and I ordered an XS and it is a perfect fit with room to move. I ordered it in black (which I love) but will probably order it in brown also.
Best coat I've ever had.
I've had a lot of coats in my 66 years but this one has been the very best. It is very warm and it fits my tubby butt. What more could I ask for when it gets cold outside and all I owned was an assortment of Florida Coats. I am in Tennesee now and and now can go outside and stay nice and warm. Price is great too.
I purchased this coat last year and within a month I started having trouble with the buckles. The coat is not tight so there is no reason that they won't stay fastened. Although the coat is warm, I do not have the double layer across the chest because the buckles open before I've even left the house.
The brand is good. The style has to go!
Like the ocat, wore it quite a bit last winter but my issue is the length of the warmest parts of the coat. has an inner vest that zips but only from about the waist/hip area up as well as the metal closures onthe outter shell. Nothing zips, buttons or clasps below that area so if the wind is blowing, you're thighs and legs are not protected. It's cold down there too! Lovely color and Ilove the clasp closures although they're more like adornment, not very functional and don't stay clasped but cute, add a certain flavor to the coat. I found it tue to size but you'd better wear thermals, tights and/or corduroys to keep your legs warm in this coat. You'll be fine from the waist up!
Very unhappy with this coat. very little fill. dont think it would keep many warm in the middle of winter. Toggles poorly made, lightweight, and kept opening. one sleeve lining was hanging out, obviously not cut properly. not good quality at all.
