answer 2
u can remove the coyote fur separately from the hood, btw. It unzips from the hood. The coyote fur shields u from the biting cold where as the faux fur doesn't. I've had both.

believe me, the coyote fur is the way to go.....It keeps out the biting, wind. It looks beautiful unlike faux fur which looks AWFUL and does nothing to keep out the wind.

Question

Is a medium big enough?

I have read online that these coats run a little large. My bust is 37, waist 30, and hips 40. Would a size med. be large enough or should I order a large? I am 5' 4" weight 132 lbs.

The Cabela's Women's Microsuede Goose-Down II Parka, item # IK-972357, does run true to size, however it is made in a generous cut. If you like the coat to fit snuggly, then a smaller size than usual would be advised.

I am 5' 8" and weigh 125 lbs. I could have purchased
a size small, but I selected a medium to ensure
adequate room for bulky sweaters, sweatshirts,
or jackets. I would think a size medium would be
perfect for a 132 lb. individual - so my answer
is "yes".

Sizing on the Cabela's Women's Microsuede Goose-Down II Parka, item # IK-972357, is best done with the bust size. When measuring, keep tape snug but not tight. With arms relaxed at side measure around fullest part of bust and over shoulder blades. The following link will provide the sizing chart for this item.

Yes, there are two. I had a hard time finding them, but if you Zoom the picture, you can see the zippers. They are small and hidden, but work seamlessly. The pockets are big enough to fit light gloves, but probably not very bulky ones. Hope this helps.

answer 2
I am a size 18 - 20 and the 2XL just fits and is definitely not roomy. The down is very plump and there is less room on the inside than on the outside. I have purchased these jackets before and didn't have the size problem. This time I bought the white one and it is just short of "snug". I don't know if they changed the sizing overall or it is just the white one.

Question

right size revisited

Are the measurements your expert lists for this parka the inside or outside measurements? By that i'm asking if my wife with her 42" bust and 41" hips can fit in the medium size parka or would she be better suited to the large size? Being short, only 5'2" I'm worried the sleeve length will be too long on the large. We are leaving on vacation to Montana, Minnesota, and Chicago in November so I need an answer soon. Thankyou

The measurements listed for the Cabela's Women's Microsuede Goose-Down II Parka, item # IK-972357, are the actual, finished dimensions of the parka, the outside dimensions. Per the sizing chart, your wife would need a Xlarge. The sleeve length on the Xlarge will be 34". I have included the sizing chart below.

answer 1
Most of our clothing lines do not have temperature ratings assigned due to too many external variables involved to accurately rate most garments. There are many factors involved, such as an individual's metabolic rate, overall tolerance to cold, calorie intake and weather conditions, among others. Proper layering under the garment is also a major factor in temperature tolerance.

My friend in the dry cleaning business said that they will take the coats, then machine wash them, same as you would. They don't put them in dry cleaning solvent because it's not good for the down. I don't know about other dry cleaners, what they do. I have washed my down coats and vests in the washing machine, then dried them for a long time to get the wet clumps out (no tennis balls). When the down is dry, it is fluffy again. If there are clumps that won't easily fluff, the down is still wet. That's been my experience with cleaning down items.
