Rated 2 out of 5 by Syd123 Quality with design problems
I was looking for a jacket made with a nylon shell and a little on the puffy side. I liked the color and the look of the Penfield jacket. However when it arrived I noticed two problems that were deal breakers. First the sleeves were not adjustable. They had metal buttons instead of velcro closures. And the pockets to keep the hands warm were too low on the jacket and had the same single button closures. Other than the things I mentioned, it's a nice jacket. I ordered the medium size and it fit nicely. Too bad, I hoped this was the end of my search for nice winter jacket.

Brought the Penfield puffer last year in pine-green since my man needed a durable and stylish down jacket during the winter season. He wanted a puffer jacket with a hood (no fur!) and at a reasonable length. I also thought the velcro closures for the front pockets were a plus. This was by far the perfect match. I've been waiting for J.Crew to add another color this year anything but pine-green. However to my disappointment, J.Crew didn't make this jacket in the standard colors (e.g., black, grey or navy blue).

Bought this last year and returned it after I couldn't take the color. Since last year's pine-green atrocity, I've been waiting for a reboot of this otherwise magnificent coat, but J. Crew has disappointed again. Unfortunately Penfield does not offer this coat through their website as it is a J. Crew exclusive. This should definitely be offered in multiple colors. Come out with a black, dark blue, charcoal, or dark green version of this coat and I'll be happy.

Very disappointed in this item as it runs very larger and they do not accept returns. I ordered a small but it fits like a larger. After I order they made a size X-small available
