Rated 5 out of 5 by CTGal FANTASTIC JACKET
I purchased this in navy and fell in love with it and went back an ordered an additional one in black. I did not expect this jacket to be warm, given its light weight, but I've been wearing it on 20 degree days while walking the dog and I am toasty warm. I too had issues with the collar of the insert (that looks like the vest), but since I wear a scarf all the time, it is fine. The jacket is stylish, the lining is sumptuous and I'm crazy in love with it. I wear it just about all the time and it has exceeded my expectations beyond measure. Great job Dennis!
Rated 3 out of 5 by TX Q QUEEN Nice, but flawed
I like the look of this jacket and the light weight. I got the black. I ordered my normal DB size M and it was VERY snug. I would have kept it as incentive to loose 5-10 lbs but the inner collar rubbed against the bottom of my chin and could not fold down. I tried zipping it out but I felt like I wasn't getting what I paid for since I like the look with the collar. I found it tricky getting it zipped back in. Finally one of my collars on the outside of the jacket didn't want to lay properly. Sending it back.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BlingQueen66 What a SCORE!
What a great product. It has style, you can zip out the lining for a lighter jacket, it is very warm but not bulky, it covers the tush. I am very happy about this purchase. It is my first Dennis Basso but I hope not my last. I was in a fashion slump and throwing on sweatshirt jackets but now I have a jacket that is not heavy but warm with style.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FourS beautiful puffer
I'm not small, so puffer coats are out for me in most cases. However, this one from the premier coat designer is good. Not too puffy, right length, black can't go wrong, and very well constructed. The design flaw of the "turtle" neck built in and scraping my chin is a pain; I'll just not use it. But the way it's put together is fabulous, high quality. All zippers, buttons, and snaps are spot on. Just the way the zipper hits the neck is NOT right. At least on me? Clearance price helps, and it looks fine just as a blazer shape.

Ordered this blazer in Blue. Perfect in every way. Not too puffy, nor heavy, nor does it make you too warm. Fits true to a Dennis Basso fit. The zip out insert is wonderful, giving you the option of having cover up all the way to your neck or, when taken out, showing a more vee neck opening. The length is perfect too, not long in back, but enough coverage. I do miss that little hidden inside pocket that Dennis Basso usually puts into his coats, and jackets...I guess we can't have everything, But, this is a perfect blazer.
Rated 3 out of 5 by BEE Collar won't bend
Loved the weight of the jacket, loved the design of the overall look but HATED the inner lining collar, will not lay down!! Hit hit me at my jaw and was irritating every time I turned. would not fold down or bend to change the problem. Wish it was not soooo rigid. Back it went. Could NOT live with that collar and to zip it out negates the reason for it in the first place. Living in Michigan you NEED that upper chest protection in the cold months. Was going to use the coat as a go between activities that I would not need a heavy coat - the collar was the deal breaker. :(
Rated 2 out of 5 by warm in Minnesota Dennis missed the mark on this one
So disappointed since this looked to be the perfect lightweight jacket. Everything was perfect except the zipper gusset at the neck was very uncomfortable for someone with a shorter neck! It looked great on the models but even unzipped hit my neck at an uncomfortable place and would not lay flat. Had to return it!
Rated 3 out of 5 by millie722 Disappointed
This jacket did not fit like a blazer on me. It didn't have any shape. It's an ordinary lightweight jacket. I like the concept of being able to remove the insert with the high collar, but execution isn't easy enough that I'd be taking it in and out much, especially since it's too shapeless to be worn as a blazer. The first thing I noticed when taking the jacket out of the package was the noisy swish of the fabric. Otherwise, I like the fabric-- seems to be good quality. It doesn't have a sheen like most quilted jackets; that's a plus for me. I have 2 other DB rain jackets that I love, but this one is nothing special. Also overpriced I think.
