Okay, so I bought this coat this year, and its been pretty good for the last month or so that I have had it. It is water proof, and when it does survive through the rain it dries off relatively fast. It feels really thin, but in the fall weather we've had lately it has been pretty warm. It is super bright and gets really good compliments so far. The only problem would be that the pockets are all in the front of the coat and you can't slip your hands in them like you would in normal coats because there are none! Other than that this coat is pretty bomb! I would recommend it any day!
