Going by the price, I think it won't. hmm

warmer than an eg Primark down coat

but not as warm as Land's End or Northface

it has feathers which is what makes them warm. I would say it would be warm

I would say it'll be really warm -if what they spout about the down quality is true.

i reckon it will be. could you buy it, try it and if its not warm send it back???

Let me know how warm it is, SixtyFootDoll!

LynetteScavo Fri 06-Nov-09 22:20:46

I've just ordered it in olive. smile

It'll be toasty. I have the uniqlo bodywarm light coat and that's hot enough for me. This'll be much warmer.

what bothers me about puffa coats - and this thread may not be the best place to mention it - is the way they make the wearer's arms stick out to the sides. for those who've already bought - please check you can still put your arms down by your side like a normal person. thanks

perhaps you should take the hanger out first

bonfirewithaheartofgold Fri 06-Nov-09 22:38:34

lol @hmm have only paid any attention to them irl since recent s&b flurry of interest and every time i see them i think "put your arms down fgs", sorry grin

I must be officially old...I really don't care if I have horizontal arms how I look, as long as I'm warm.

And that's something I thought I'd enver say!

so it arrived early this morning....I put it on, DH walked in, did a double take, gfawed, and said I looked like I'd cut the bottom off a sleeping bag.

My 4 and 6 year olds said I looked nice, and when I took it off I felt cold, so I've kept it.

Most improtatnly, it doesn't make my arms stick out to the sides! smile
