Thank you for your feedback.
Turns out the coat is very warm, as it is very well insulated, and fits as expected.
Husband was looking for a warm jacket for cold Colorado days and this was perfect.
The fur on the hood is nice, as it helps keep the ears warm.

Product Description

The Slimfit N-3B is a cold-weather parka designed for extreme weather. The streamlined silhouette offers a unique fit, while the thick lining, Nylon shell and longer length offers superior protection against freezing and windy conditions. The classic N-3B design was originally created to protect U.S. Air Crew and ground personnel during flight operations in severe cold and polar-based theaters. The slim fit is one of our best selling parkas, as it retains the protective qualities of the original Alpha N-3B but offers up a more contemporary fit that is perfect for the modern look. This men's jacket is our standard fit so we recommend you order the size you typically wear. Alpha Industries is a 55-year-old heritage military company that originally supplied the United States Armed Forces with durable outerwear. Now you can own an authentic parka made to the same high quality standards demanded by the US military. Each parka is uniquely designed and inspired by an iconic jacket in Alpha Industries history. We invite you to be a part of this history today

    I just have to say, This is probably the nicest parka I have ever owned. It is heavy, and waterproof, exactly what I need. The fur on the hood is nice, as it helps keep the ears warm. Some people have complained about it not being warm enough without a hoodie underneath. This coat was originally designed for military use, meaning it was not some huge, overstuffed down parka. It was meant to be worn in layers, for maximum heat retention, and to be removable in the event of sweating. If you are looking for some massive down-filled parka, this is probably not the best one for you. Thanks for taking the time to read my review!

    Firstly, I'm 6'5' and around 200 lbs, 42 in chest, and wear a 16.5/ 36-37 dress shirt. I picked up a large at first, but it was massive around the chest and waist which is OK if you plan on wearing 2 or 3 layers underneath, but I expected something different from a coat marketed as 'slim-fit'. I should also note that the first one I purchased was the sage green color and it looked pretty awful in person.

    I returned the large (which wasn't purchased from amazon, but directly from AI) and ordered a medium in maroon from Amazon, which turned out to be exactly what I was looking for. It fits snug on the waist and chest resulting in a nice silhouette, reaches halfway down my backside, and I was very happy to see that the sleeves were long enough even in medium. It keeps me very warm in frigid temperatures (I've only been down to 15 degrees farenheit, but was fine with just a t-shirt under) and is very water repellent, if not waterproof. I really enjoy the maroon color which is a deep red in person; obviously, based on the composition of the coat, the material has a sheen to it. This looked pretty bad with the green color that I had before (like a trash bag), but not with the maroon colorway.

    Something interesting to note is that this coat doesn't have traditional seams at the shoulder, rather the seams run through the chest and upper back. There is an elastic cuff on the interior of the sleeve at the wrist to keep the wind out, as well as the front placket to keep wind out from the zipper.

    TL;DR it is a very warm, comfortable, and stylish coat. If you're looking for a more fashionable fit, go for a size down. If not, just go true to size. Maroon looks great, sage doesn't.

    Hi,

    I'm 176mm, 83kg, Asian guy, the size L is fit perfect for me, normally I like a little bulky for winter coat, but this time, it's not at all. so please remember, this coat is a slim style, hope can help to other people who like it.

    Overall, this parka is not bad, especially if you'd have a chance to buy it on Amazon just for $93 as I did. Its lightweight, waterproof and windproof. These are pros. But there are a lot of "cons" however. The hood is too small. Is presses on your head, and I have heard a lot of similar complaints from people which bought this coat. The artificial fur looks ugly. The parka is not warm. I assume some people can wear it at minus 20 C with just a tee underneath. If you are not a warm-blooded person (like me) you will put this parka on at just zero of Celsius or something like this. The internal pocket is rather small and does not secured with velcro or zipper or anything else. The main zipper was hard to operate at first but after several weeks it began move more smoothly. The nylon of this parka is quite stiff. As a bottom line, this parka is not bad for its price but it will never become my favorite winter coat.

    First of all, sorry for my poor english.

    I hope that somebody from Alpha Industries read this review because I love this jacket but I am very disappointed with it and with Alpha Industries.

    This jacket is great, really warm, soft, good-looking... BUT...

    The quality of some parts are really bad:

    The zipper was broken very soon. The bad part is that I had to unpick the seams of the entire jacket in order to change the zipper. (The zipper shown in the photo is the new zipper. My finger points to the place where the original zipper was broken).

    The sleeve seams were broken too. I don't know what to do now to fix it!

    I have to say that i use the jacket in a normal way and taking care of it. Those problems are not due to a bad use.

    I hope Alpha Industries fix all those problems to gives us the opportunity to enjoy their jackets.
