- Four stars (Review by WesternWA)
This jacket is a nice winter layer. It is warm (but not too warm - dont expect it to be an arctic layer) and water resistant (not water proof). Unfortunately, the zipper quality is not great and it gets stuck when trying to zip up. But, it does have a zip from the top and bottom feature, which is great when trying to get into your under layers. I am a small (5'6", 125) and found that this jacket is sized perfectly with room for an underlayer. The "Orchid" color is more purple is person than on the web, but still a nice color.

- Back again! (Review by Jules)
I haggled over all the great jackets but I just couldn't get past how much I loved my Aria Storm Parka. I suffered a broken zipper last year (hey, it happens) and when it came time to pick a new jacket I ordered this again! I love it. I am wearing right now. This is a great jacket. One note would be if you have cyclist thighs like I do you might want to consider a large if you are on the fence. I went with Medium over Large this year and while it fits better everywhere else the hip/thigh region is a little snug. I am use to this though and if you have this "issue" then you probably are too. Just a heads up!

- Loved this jacket (Review by Jules)
I bought this jacket a size too big due to it being out of stock in my standard size. Even with the larger size this jacket was my everyday jacket. It kept me warm and dry during all the polar vortexes. I loved it so much I would ride my bicycle in it even though the longer shape kept getting caught on my saddle during dismount. I did notice some feathers shedding but nothing that deters me from wanting a new one. My zipper did break just a week ago. Too bad OR is out of these in warranty stock but that just means I have to send it in and choose a new jacket! I love OR products. I own three jackets and several accessories.

- No feathers here (Review by TS)
This is my second winter with the Aria Storm Parka as my casual around-town jacket. Unlike other reviewers, I have not found this jacket to shed any feathers with almost daily use. I love this coat- it is warm enough for low activity in Northeast winters without being bulky or unflattering.

- Not For Me (Review by Disappointed)
I purchased the Aria Storm Parka after speaking about whether the feathers leaking problem was taken care of. Assured that it was, ordered it and on first inspection, there were feathers sticking out of the inside collar. After trying it on to see how it fits, saw several feathers on my black vest (purposely wore black). Had to pay for return shipping. The jacket is rather slim and somewhat thin. Would love to see the Orchid color in a waterproof insulated parka warm enough to wear in the wintertime.

- Women's Aria Storm Parka™ (Review by By Bucky)
I purchased this coat for winter 2012-13 in black. I loved the coat and wore it many times, but it shed feathers more than any other down coat/jacket I've ever had. They were very small feathers, and when I wore a dark-colored sweater or shirt underneath my clothes would be noticeably covered in them. The company was nice enough to let me ship the coat back to them and issue a credit. Now it is fall 2013 and I would like to use my credit. I was hoping that the feather issue has been resolved because I would order the same coat again if it has. But I see no mention of a redesign and so far only old reviews mentioning the same problem. I would not recommend buying this coat unless the issue has been resolved. Otherwise, it fit great and was cute and comfy!

- Women's Aria Storm Parka™ (Review by By Unhappy Camper)
This coat fit really well however my coat shed a ton of feathers. Not just a feather here and there (like a typical down coat) but my entire back/arms would be full of them. I called to ask if I could exchange, however, the customer service rep stated that they knew this was an issue due to the fabric used on the coat. Unfortunately, I had to return the coat.

The Aria Storm Parka was such a pleasant surprise! I was thrilled with my purchase as soon as I tried it on. It's the perfect coat for those cooler fall days, and I know it will be great this winter. It's not bulky but definitely warm, and so lightweight.
