In this post, I'll be reviewing the Tna BANCROFT RELAXED PARKA coat.  I finally decided to transition in getting a goose down coat since New York City weather can get extremely and brutally cold during the wintertime.  I decided to buy my goose down coat at Aritizia because I heard from my friend that the coats are pretty durable for wintertime.  I went to the store and tried a few on.  I tried the Tna BANCROFT PARKA, but I personally didn't like how the waist section cinch in by making it pretty tight on me. I feel that the Tna BANCROFT PARKA runs a bit on the smaller size.  Typically I wear a size Small but when I was trying on the regular Tna BANCROFT PARKA I had to get a medium.  I then tried the Relaxed fit and it was more comfortable than the Tna BANCROFT PARKA, it was certainly a more relaxed fit for me and the size does run bigger.  I first tried on a large because that is what they had left on the rack and it was overly super big for me.  The sales rep recommend me to try a size small, so she checked in the backroom to get me a size small.  I really like how the relaxed fit; fits on me. The Relaxed fit, certainly feel more relaxed and it wasn't tight on my waist and I can move around more without being to restricted.  Personally, if you want to invest a goosedown jacket from Aritizia I highly recommend that you try on at the store.  After trying it on, I decided to purchase because during Thanksgiving Black Friday sales can get hectic and certainly I'm not sure if this coat will ever go on sale since it's a newer style.  This coat was an early Christmas present for me.

Test Drive Conclusion:
So I tested drive it recently and wore this on 30-degree windy day weather in NYC.  I only wore one long sleeve and that was it.  Very durable, keeping me warm at all times going through the wind, which was also windproof as well.  The coat kept me insulated at all times.  This coat felt like a sleeping bag keeping me warm throughout the day.  The pros of this goose down jacket it has the durability of keeping me warm at all times and it is also waterproof if it rains or snows.  The downside of this goose down it can be heavy and the zipper is hard to zip up at times.

I hope this review helps you in some ways if you ever want to invest in a goose down jacket at Aritzia.
