Some of my favorite features are:
* both snaps and a double-slide zipper
* fluffy "fur" around my head when the hood's down
* machine washable
* extra-deep pockets with fleece inside for warm hands
* brown longcoat!
* pre-season sale with coupon = half price
Down side, hood's way too big - flops down over my face - with no drawstring. Can't see, wind gets in it, if I fold the front back the fur's heavy enough to make it flop back down. But I've got earmuffs & plenty of hats & scarves, so the good definitely outweighs the bad.
All it needs is the patch for the sleeve.
