Coat is nice...but not the zipper!

Date:January 1, 2014
I recently bought this coat for winter weather in Wisconsin. One really nice feature (and the main reason for my purchase of the coat) is the extra length...you can easily wear it over (and cover) sport coats for trips taken when dressed up. The coat is also exceptionally warm.
BUT there is one BIG problem. Unless and until you learn how to hold the zipper in your fingers just right, you won`t be able to start the zipper to zip the coat up. This is an art form that I`m still struggling to master.
Very, very frustrating, and often taking 5 minutes or more to get the coat zipped up. On several of the times that I`ve now worn this coat in a public setting, people have approached me and asked if I`d like their help in zipping the coat up. (Trust me...those overtures make one feel really great!)
I still recommend this coat because of its otherwise nice features, but it needs a much better zipper. If the zipper issue ever gets fixed, it`s a five-star coat. But not until then, for the zipper issue is, IMHO, that problematic.

Best Ice Fishing Apparel!

Date:February 13, 2013
Amazing gear! The parka is a very excellent outer layer for ice fishing. The length is great, once you learn to open the zipper from the bottom for moving around. I love the fleece-lined hand warmer pockets.
I am 6'5" tall.
Still in my first season of use, but no problems so far. I just love the parka and bibs.

Excellent Parka.

Date:January 29, 2013
This Parka is extremely nice. Incredibly warm and comfortable. Nice color. Great hood. Plenty of storage space with pockets. I highly recommend this Parka not only for anyone who Ice fishes, but also to anyone who needs a long comfortable winter weather Parka for being out in the extreme weather.

Awesome!

Date:January 8, 2013
My son LOVES his Cabela Guidewear GORE_TEX Ice Angler Parka-Tall and matching bibs! He wore them over the holidays snowmobiling and ice fishing. He was toasty warm and was able to move about easily. Very durable and the tall is exactly what he needs!

Excellent

Date:January 23, 2012
I spend 4months a year on the ice in a average year, and have seen most of the major brands of clothing. The guidewear is tops, windproof, waterproof and very warm. As stated the Parka is very long, it does stretch down to just above your knees and feels strange the first few times you wear it, but it effectively doubles the insulation from the chest to your knees. Didn't think that I would like the knee pads in the bibs but they are very handy and I have not removed them. This parka and bib set has so many pockets it's hard to remember where everything is! Only problem that I have found is the cuffs are so large that its difficult to put gloves or mitts over them. Only suggestion that could possibly make it better is to add a zip in fleece liner but that would then make it 6 stars! EXCELLENT Product, love the fact it comes in tall sizes.

Nice coat... just VERY long.

Date:December 31, 2011
Coat is very well made; wish I could have kept it. I am 5' 10" tall and the coat fit well in the shoulders and arms but the coat came down to my knees. It just did not look or feel right.
