First the good:
This is by far the warmest winter coat I've ever owned. It's also pretty thin for how warm it is. I live in Beijing, and it's usually between -10 and 0 Celsius with strong winds, and I'm warm. I've never had a coat that blocked the wind as well or was as snow/rain proof (it bounces off!). I'm 5'4", and for me the size XS coat is the perfect length, falling at mid-thigh so your backside is totally covered for warmth but it's not long and cumbersome. The drawstrings on the waist are great and give a puffy parka a surprisingly sleek, feminine cut. I like the lining/inserts on the cuffs with the knitted material. They are really long and stretchy so you never, ever have gaps between your coat and gloves. Also, I don't agree with the other reviewer about the hood issue: the hood has a strap for adjusting in the back, so you can make it as large or small as you want (maybe she didn't notice this?) Lastly, the fleece-lined hand-warmer pockets seem awkwardly placed at first, but they free up the lower pockets for other things and keep your arms tucked up next to you for extra warmth.
Now the bad:
I think the fur ruff, although very luxurious, is over-the-top and not very functional. Also, the top and bottom of the coat seem to be slightly disproportionate. I have wide hips and a relatively large bust for my height/frame (I normally wear size 2-4 clothes), and the coat fits VERY snugly around my hips but is super loose around my chest and especially my arms, which is weird. I can easily fit my thickest winter sweaters underneath. Finally, the zipper is indeed a bit flimsy and sometimes catches the fabric while zipping up.
1)The collar has absolutely no insulation what so ever (just a stiff,flat collar) and stands away from the neck. When the hood is up, and pulled tightly, it does nothing to pull the collar in, but pulls whole jacket up. Less expensive and more stylish coats have far superior wind proofed collar and hood designs. When the collar is zipped up all the way it bumps up against the chin. You must wear a gator or scarf to keep your neck warm, even if the weather isn't that cold.
2) The two-way #10 YKK zipper is somewhat difficult to allign at the bottom...It takes a few tries to get it to slide. My husband's old LL Bean parka has a #5 plastic zipper with metal sliders that works much better.
3)The fill seems a little on the sparse side...not up to some of CG's other models. On really (single digit)cold days, a heavy sweater was necessary underneath.
4) The hood is way to big for a woman's coat.
There are some good things (which is why I bought it): The classic snorkel stlye that won't look dated, the engineering of the deep set knit windbreaker cuff in the sleeve is excellent-you can wear any length glove with no fuss. They should have put the same level of thought into windsealing the neck. The shell fabric is amazing: the snow/sleet/rain practically bounces off of it. The high quality fur trim on the hood is luxuriously thick and detachable, but it is not functional...I would rather less fur and a puffy,snug fitting, down filled collar for my money.
I had to wear the jacket a few times to be aware of its shortcomings and don't want to return it. It is well made and will be OK for typical east coast winter weather...but if you want a garment for seriously cold temps, you should spend the extra $100 or so bucks and go for the CG's Expedition model.
I absolutely adore the hood! The fur is luxurious and beautiful. It's seriously one of the most beautiful parts of the coat. When I'm standing outside getting gas, I keep my hood up and the fur completely blocks the wind - my face is not cold. Some have said the hood is too big, but it is completely adjustable, so you can have it whatever size you want. I like it larger, because it blocks more wind that way.
Another benefit, is the coat is not unflattering. Parkas are often so bulky and round you feel like a marshmallow. Not so with the Trillium. It goes in at the waist, and you can adjust the cords inside to make it go in even further if you like. I think this coat is extremely flattering, especially for a parka.
The Cons: The biggest con with this coat is the rough, sharp collar, up by your chin. It is not lined with fleece or anything, so you're getting the nylon material on your face. I knew about this from the other reviews, but thought I wouldn't care at all about it. As it turns out, it does bother me some. Every time you zip the coat up all the way, you feel it. It's very thick, and that would be good IF there was some lining or fleece, but as it is, the collar is pretty uncomfortable.Read more ›
