I just bought 3 of these parkas for my wife, my son and myself this past week. I was in the sears retail store and looked them over briefly. I bought them because of the cost of them all. I got all three for 350 bucks tax in. I own Columbia and Snow goose (Canada Goose for the city dwellers), and these coats rank right up there with the 900 dollar snow goose I own. If you are looking for a warm down parka to wear around and stay nice and toasty in, I cannot recommend these alpine tek parkas enough. They are That good! If I put the Canada goose badging on them, you could not tell the difference just by looking at a person wearing them.
