This is my first fully vegan winter jacket, and I was somewhat iffy on it becuase I'm still transitioning, and I've gone every winter with down jackets with wool lining. I'd been really looking forward to trying Noize actually, since my wife picked a really beautiful full length all-black winter coat last year and it looks so warm and comfy, while also looking stunning. So I sprung for mine this winter, and I'm impressed. I'd been leaning toward getting the lighter, diamond-quilted jacket that comes without a hood, and I still plan to get that one at some point, but I'm seriously very impressed by how insanely warm my Noize jacket is. Blows Canada Goose and Moose Knuckle away, honestly. My only thing though, is I think sizing may have been off. I normally fit a Canadian medium, and based on the sizing guide, it seemed to be business as usual here, but when I recieved my jacket, it felt like maybe I should have gone for the small instead. It isn't so much of a problem that I'd want to exchange it, but just feedback so maybe they review their sizing information. Wonderful product that rivals all the $1200 winter jacket brands at a fraction of the monetary cost, and none of the life cost.
Great coat. Great price. Fast shipping. The sizing guide I believe is a little off. I ordered an XL (I am currently have a 46" chest) and according to the size guide I should have ordered an XXL. Thank god, I didn't or I would be swimming in it. I measured across and the jacket is 50-52" across for an XL (so this is even large by vanity sizing standards). I may have been able to go with a large. I used the live chat (they say it takes them up to 1 day to reply, but it took maybe 30 minutes, each time to get a response (and I had two questions). One was about the sizing, as their sizing guide seems to reflect almost European fit, rather than American "vanity sizing", which is what it seems to maintain, as mentioned online in quite a few places. Ordered on a Wednesday after 5 PM and got my coat on Friday at noon. So at the end of the day, I got a really nice well-made, cheap "fat coat" that no one had to die for.
Very comfortable and warm. Great buy.
