I was a bit nervous when I purchased this parka without trying it on or seeing it, but trust me... it was worth it. Sizing charts were accurate and the quality is great. The fact that it's made in Canada under humane and ethical conditions was a big selling feature. I've had it about a month now. I've worn it out to dinner and also to work outside in -25 windy conditions. It's both gorgeous and extremely warm, a practical and beautiful piece. Was it expensive? Yeah a bit (if you're an average middle class Canadian like me), but I invested in this great parka and am fully anticipating getting many years of use from it.
This coat is amazing, nice and warm even when going for a walk in -30 windy weather. The ties at the hood keep the fur next to your face in windy weather. I wore my coat last weekend when I was a passenger on a skidoo. I was toasty warm.
I am still debating whether the size is the right one for me after wearing it outside only once. Very snug fit keeping me warm. I am tall at 5,9 with long arms. Great service around delivery. Thanks for the tuque gift.
I couldn't edit an old review, so I decided to come back and write a new one to talk about my experience after a few weeks with the Cheyenne coat. I am very, VERY happy with it! Firstly, it is so beautiful and flattering, and I've gotten compliments to my face from people I know, but I've also overheard strangers in stores comment on it to each other!! I've worn it for about a month so far in Canadian winter (albeit, not super cold, but still enough to get an idea of the warmth of the coat) and it is really warm and feels super cozy and sOoOoOo soft. The length is also great, in my opinion-- It's long enough to sit on, if you need to sit for a minute outside. BUT one really excellent design feature is the two-way zipper! It's not even mentioned in the description, but it is a fantastic design feature, because if you need to be kneeling or bending over, you just unzip a little from the bottom to give you some extra room for your thighs to move, and if you're just walking or standing, you can zip it all the way down. I was SO happy when I discovered this, as it does make a big difference in how you experience and move in the coat! It's the cherry on top of the cake!
I came back to write another review because I always thoroughly research before buying things (especially for a certain amount of money, and an investment I won't be buying every year). When I was buying the coat, there weren't any reviews, and I was sceptical about buying something without reading any reviews, but I took a chance anyway, and I am VERY very happy with it! So I wanted to come here to assure anyone thinking of buying this coat (I can only speak for the Cheyenne) that you will be VERY happy with it! It really is as good as the pictures and the description!
Thank you Kristina for the review! We're so happy to hear your positive comments. You're right, the two way zipper is a key feature and we should add it to the description!
Beautiful fit, love it
