In case you might not have realized, I live in Minnesota. I know there are a bunch of you, who live in a land of snow this time of year too. For all you people that have warm sunshine and moderate temperatures- I highly dislike you right now. Don’t get me wrong. I love my snowy Christmas. I even love a good snowstorm. But by the time March rolls around, I’m done. I’m ready for green once again.
Regardless of my wishes, I have tons of snow in my backyard. Clearly, winter is not over yet. Luckily, I am bound to stay snug now matter how much the wind blows with my new Free Country coat. I must admit I had never heard of this online company before, but based on my experience I am now a fan.
My coat is the Women’s Tahoe Power Down Jacket. It is a truly epic name for a coat, isn’t it? I must admit I was a little nervous selecting such a potentially large and bulky jacket.
I currently own a down jacket, but it falls at the waist. When the northern wind blows, I have been left wanting something a bit longer. Clearly, this coat would save my behind from the cool breeze:) But what about bulk? I detest bulky, heavy jackets. I have three boys that constantly need help. I can’t have a winter coat getting in my way and potentially slowing me down.
I am happy to report that my Tahoe jacket is the perfect weight and thickness for me. I am warm, but not weighted down. I can move with ease. And I love the cut of the jacket. Instead of a standard cut, this coat has slight gathering at the waist, creating a more feminine look. I feel cozy, sporty, and comfortable.
A jacket such as my Tahoe would normally cost well over a hundred dollars at most stores. Down is not necessarily a cheap item. But at Free Country my coat is currently on sale for $90. I found my jacket to run in a traditional size. My jacket is a large and fits perfectly, though please keep in mind I am 5’9 and long waisted.
I may not be happy that winter is still here, but at least I am well protected from the blizzards we are bound to have this March. Bring it on!:)
