Rated 3 out of 5 by Helpuout Love the Vest more than the Jacket
Great concept. Since I own the vest and love it, I thought I'd try the jacket. The concept of the built-in face mask and gloves is great, however the sleeves are long and are narrow by the wrist so you can push them up a bit but can't roll them. Not comfortable for me. My vest is a large, so I ordered the large. Would be difficult to get it zipped over a winter sweater. I would put this in the back of the car as an emergency jacket but for the cost, I'm returning it. I'll just pack my face warmer and mittens. Love the brand but this needs some redesign.
Rated 5 out of 5 by neerondogs The Best Jacket
I bought one of these for myself and have since returned to get another one for myself and one each for my two daughters. Absolutely love this jacket. Comfortable and stylish, it is more than a jacket, it is a cold weather system, offering you options without having to carry a pile of stuff with you. Yes, the sleeves are a bit longer, but it is not something that you or anyone else would notice. I am sure after the first time you convert them to mittens you will forget all about the couple of extra inches of fabric. I really like the way that the mittens are part of the sleeve, so that when you wear them your hands get the added benefit of the warmth of your arms. Great idea. You can wear the scarf or not, but if you choose not to, you never even know it is in the hood. Not bulky, but warm. This is the best thing I've ever gotten from QVC. Please get more of these!
Rated 4 out of 5 by nickib Light, but warm
I love everything about this coat, except the length of the sleaves. They are so long, that I have to roll them up.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JerseyGirl63 Very comfortable and warm jacket
Bought the red, and love it! It's a matted red and like the contrasting lining. It's very good at blocking the wing, great coverage and warm! I do not like a bulky coat, specially while driving. This is light weight, but keeps you very warm, I actually can wear a coat now in the winter and drive in it. The special features are great. Used the built in gloves while "Shoveling out" in the blizzard about a month ago, very handy and don't have to worry about loosing or where to put my gloves. Pockets are deep and sturdy. If there is one "little thing I can say is that if your wearing short sleeves, they get a little bunched up at the opening of the arms. But I just adjust them and go on my way, nice and warm! Also they are a little long but but it's due to the built in gloves which is really a great feature, it's really easy to get over. Very happy with this purchase, well made and thought out jacket! I do recommend to others.
Rated 5 out of 5 by singlecnygal So glad I bought this coat!!
I have been looking for a new coat and saw this on the website and fell in love when I saw the built in mittens and gaiter. I ordered it right away! I recommended it to several people on my Facebook page before I had even received it!
But once I did I was EXTREMELY glad that I did!!! It fits true to size and has enough room for a sweatshirt under it.
The sleeves are long, THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE. That's how the mittens work! I read some of the other reviews and people sent the coats back because of the sleeves being long. They are long on purpose because that's how this coat works. It's a shame if you don't give this coat a chance because you don't understand the sleeves!
The coat is a thinner material that allows for movement and it also keeps out the wind and water beads up on it. the built in gaiter is AMAZING! It keeps your face and neck toasted warm! And no matter how tight you pull the hood there's a little lip that keeps it from covering your eyes.
The mittens are very warm and very easy to open and close.

I received this as a Christmas gift and love it. I walk my dog daily and find the built in mittens helpful and totally love the the built in face mask.. I would definately recommend this .
Rated 3 out of 5 by cheygal50 Needs more pockets
The jury's still out on this one. Warmth, good, like the mittens, face mask & hood. My #1 complaint is the lack of pockets. There are only the two exterior pockets and I prefer at least one interior pocket and a top pocket. Loki, please go back to the drawing board and put in some more pockets!
Rated 1 out of 5 by jemom Good concept; bad execution
On 1/11/16 I returned two jackets (item # A 269459 men's L and item # A269459 mens XL) that neither my husband nor son would wear ; arms were too long, the lining like sticky velcro, They didn't like the partially "lined" pockets. Serious manufacturing flaws.
Very active outdoors and fit, and hopeful that I could wear the women's Large I kept mine and wore it once outside to test warmth, comfort, and wearability. I have never been so very disappointed in a product before now & too shall be returned. It is not warm, water proof , nor windproof and might only be appropriate for 50-60 weather but so would a $20 sweatshirt hoodie!
My criticism and observations: It needs separate sewed in, attached thinsulate or other true insulating lining in the jacket, hood, mittens, as well as entire pocket envelopes.
1. This was described as a warm mountain jacket designed for warmth and comfort. It had a "lined hood, neck gator, and built in flip over mittens and thumb insert" for winter warmth. One would expect it to be warm.
2. The " fleece lining" was not anything but shedding fuzzy stuff glued directly to inside of the jacket fabric. It was sticky and acted like velcro that made it impossible to just slip on like all other outer wear I have had. The sleeve width of the women's jack was extremely narrow & were excessively long and because of stickiness and narrowness I could not wear a secondary fleece or sweatshirt. The sleeves were so long I had to fold them up above the non-extended mitten line to have my hands free to use walking sticks, or drive. I wore it on a 38 degree breezy day. It did NOT keep me warm as it was. I could not wear a second layer. I would say this is seriously flawed and NOT worth $99.96.
3. To make matters worse. The inside of the pockets had that sticky fuzzy stuff on the outer side but the part against the body is netting. With the pocket opened holding keys, water and cell phone, cold air invaded the inside of the jacket adding to chill.
I believe the product concept otherwise made some sense. However the deficient pockets, sticky inadequate "lining", narrow excessively long sleeves, totally negates the usefulness of the concept. My goodness, a coat with neck gator, hood and built in mittens would necessarily be presumed to be and advertised to be warm! My guys were right, BAD product!!
I would reconsider with suggested remedies integrated into new model.
