Hi Ladies,

Gonna buy a gift for someone this xmas, any recommendations for women's puffies that actually cover your butt? I love my BD cold forge down hoody, and that was what I was thinking of getting, but the women's version looks really short in the back and a sales rep told me it usually comes to just below the waist. Too short. Not really looking for a thigh-length fashion-parka, just a warm functional puffy jacket that goes below the hips...any suggestions? Maybe a sized-down men's version of the cold forge hoody?

I love my Mountain Hardwear belay jacket. Bought mine used, it's a men's small, and is roomy where you want it, but fine for fit. That's my go to in Boise, when it heads into the teens. I really like the ginormous pockets! The entire travel coffee fits in there with room for hands. Inside pockets, and an inside zip pocket. Not "stylish" at all, but hey, SLC can be pretty ugly in the winter too. Something that really works could be much appreciated!

I'm 4"11", about a size 8 in women's. If she's really skinny it might be too baggy, but I doubt it.

Best, Helen

Rab Nuetrino pro is an awesome ladies coat.  My wife loves hers.

My Rab puffy does. I think its the Neutrino, its a big puffy anyway. Im 6ft tall, with a long torso, and mine is a size M with good length. It doesn't cover my whole butt, but its pretty damn close and impressive as I can't find brands that have the length in the torso i need, without going to a L, or XL, which ends gigantic on me.
