This coat is incredible. I have never worn a coat that is a combination of being so light and so warm. The removable liner is a nice touch, but I couldn't see myself wearing the liner on its own just because it isn't really my style. Again the price tag on this piece is pretty hefty, but If you manage to get it in the smash and grab box like I did it is the deal of the century. The styling behind this coat is the cleanest I have ever seen and it is a perfect embodiment of what Jiberish wanted to do with the Grand Cru line. It is great to wear on the mountain, but is also a very clean and high end coat for off the mountain. The only two downsides I can see is the zipper on mine is can be a bit tricky and the lack of a powder skirt could be annoying if I ever got powder in Iowa.
