NS was gracious enough to hook me up with this dope coat. Unfortunately I didn't get to wear it as much as I would have liked but I must say this coat is ballin'! The anorak style pullover is great and I loved the very basic yet fresh design of the jacket.
In terms of warmth, I had no issue with staying cozy. Due to the jacket being a shell, I layered on top of my Ninja Suit with a Patagonia Nanopuff half-zip and then the coat. This combination along was enough to keep me out during the extremely frigid temps that Wisconsin experienced last winter.
The jacket fits more traditional (I had an XL and it came just above mid thigh; 6'2 for reference) but I believe a XXL would allow for a more "hoodrich white suburban rich kid" look that some people look for. Personally I prefer a baggier cut since it allows me more room for movement but I had no restrictions spinning out of rails or any other time a jackets fit could inhibit movement when it matters.
All in all, i would give this coat a 9/10. My only gripes are that I wish it was a tad longer in the XL and I had gotten it in black. ;)

I have mixed feelings about this coat. At first I wasn't a fan of the style but it definitely grew on me. It was also great in terms of water/windproofing.
I wasn't a fan of the pullover style though. This is definitely a spring coat so your going to be wearing it on hotter days when hiking a rail/line gets pretty sweaty. The fact that you can't open it up for the walk meant I ended up getting pretty damp.
Awesome for chill spring laps but not ideal for anything that's going to get your heart rate going.
