Hi! It’s getting cold outside, so I’m wondering: are you a small(ish) masculine person struggling to find a warm menswear parka that doesn’t swallow you whole?
This winter, I sprung for a new coat, so I’m retiring my old Columbia parka. It’s still got a lot of life left in it, though, so I’ve put it up on eBay — but I’d rather know that the coat was keeping a small transmasculine person warm this winter than make a few extra bucks in cash. If any of you folks are interested, I’d be happy to waive the eBay price and send it to you for just the cost of shipping.
As for the jacket itself: I live in Canada and it kept me warm and dry through at least one polar vortex, so I’d say it’s pretty warm. It’s hardly the smallest coat out there, but it *was the first winter coat I ever found in the men’s section that fit me. Maybe it will fit you, too!
For reference, I’m 5’8” and about 125lbs: this coat fits me well enough, but it’s still a bit roomy. If you’re a smaller guy, though, this might not be the coat for you. Exact measurements are in the eBay ad, and I’ll gladly remeasure or answer any other questions you might have if you’re interested.
In any case, I hope you all find what you need to stay warm this winter. Cheers!
