Rated 1 out of 5 by from Complete Waste Of Money I bought this jacket a month ago and it is definitely the worst purchase I have made. The jacket looks puffy in the photos but in reality it is flat. It doesn’t repel cold weather at all. It has such poor stitching that the feathers inside are constantly coming out. This is such an overrated and overpriced jacket. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and snug I am so pleased with this jacket which is being tested by the current polar snap and coming up trumps.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So overrated I've owned this jacket for just under a year now. Put it this way. I have a jacket fetish. I've owned jackets and parkas of all price ranges. As for this 1. Well it feels like I'm wearing a plastic bag. Really uncomfortable. It is more comfortable with a long sleeve shirt underneath but I bought this jacket for warmth and ease of use. It is light. Super light but not nearly warm enough in cold weather. I'm talking 10 degree weather which is really not that cold. My $30 Lowes jacket is better than this. As for colder weather. I went out and paid 50 bucks for a water resistant parka from Kmart. Polyfill but so warm. The Heli jacket could use some thin fleece lining for comfort and I believe that would be better but in terms of warmth. It doesn't do what I expected it to do for such a ridiculous price. Too expensive for too little.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps me warm Does the job great. Perfect for those early mornings when it’s freezing with a jumper underneath and without one in the afternoon. My two complaints are that the hood isn’t adjustable and the sleeves are very long. Probably wouldn’t have bought it not on sale though. I also bought this men’s size as it fit better for me as a woman’s size 20.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and great value Bought this a week ago for the blue Mountains and was great! I used other layers underneath so if used as a standalone jacket maybe get the thicker one, otherwise super comfortable and warm
