Rated 4 out of 5 by Sharon in Bay View YES, THERE IS A ZIPPER PROBLEM
As so many people commented on. I can live with it because the coat in cream is just so great looking. Unzipping is easy, zipping up takes some finesse.

Needed a coat FAST that would take me from cold New York to then stuff in a suitcase for hot Bahamas and back. This coat met those needs. Surprisingly, it is not a generous fit like most of the Basso products but guessed well and chose a 2X instead of usual 1X. It worked. It is as flattering as a puffer coat can be and it is soft and comfortable as well as "stuffing" well. So why not a higher rating? THE CURSED ZIPPER! Though mine did zip, it consistently stuck on the fabric on either side. Sometimes I needed my husband to zip up my coat like a four year old in order not to miss the shuttle. Come on, Dennis. You can do better than that!

This coat is light weight but keeps me warm especially in Chicago where are temps can change in an instant.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ecila Love this coat!
I probably should reserve judgement because I just received the coat and thus have only worn it once. But I was so pleasantly surprised at how flattering it is, and fits perfectly. I never thought I could wear a puffer coat because I'm barely 5'1" and have always looked buried and just plain silly in them.This one is not very puffy at all and has a nice shape and maybe because its a little longer on me (and black) its elongating. The most flattering of all is the collar.It can be worn in several ways and frames the face beautifully. Though there is no hood, when you pop the collar and tighten it. it almost acts like a hood in that it covers the ears and the back of the head.Though I generally wear a large,all of my Dennis Basso coats (this is #5) are mediums and fit well, this one,too.A large probably would have fit also, but I like the trim look. I am a bit concerned about all the zipper complaints. I'm being very careful!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Rachelk30 Not Good For Snow Or Rain
I loved everything about the coat when I saw it on the models but when I got it home not good....winter came when it was raining and snowing and I put it on and with in a hour of going to the store and home I took it off because the water was absorbing in the material and my clothes where wet and the zipper would keep getting caught. I'm sorry I really love his brand but this was not the best choice.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Des23510 Cute!
This is a really cute jacket! It's not too heavy and looks really nice. It's pretty puffy but not heavy if that makes sense. I didn't have too much trouble with the zipper but I can tell that it can and probably will get stuck when I use it regularly. However, I think if I am careful it will be okay. I think it is worth the price and the belt looks cute :)

Nice black coat,but everytime I wear it have a problem zipping the zipper or unzipping. That means I might go somewhere and cannot unzip the coat, so I have to step out of the coat. I'll keep it for this season but that's it.

The zipper catches in the coat fabric every single time I wear the coat. It usually takes 10 minutes to fix. The rest of the coat is fine but the zipper makes it frustrating. I would not order.
