Should rename it the "Goldilocks".......it's just right!
I spent several weeks deciding which coat would best meet my needs, which was a pretty long list. This is going to be a daily wear coat for me because my day is spent in and out of the cold Needed a full, to the neck closure and hood. Needed pockets (zippers on this a bonus!). Needed darker color. Needed longer length and sleeves that could be adjusted because I'm a petite 5ft 118lbs woman (hits just above my knee), I ordered a small. I need to be warm and more on the casual side since I mainly wear jeans and leggings. I see lots of people, have to look good. I can't walk around in a fur coat (which I have several) without being judged in this day and age, so I needed something that would "confuse " these types lol...
The Galina checked off all the boxes!
First day I wore it (28° and windy) I was in love. It's very light yet provides full protection from the cold, and I never overheated....the way it regulated my body heat, no matter if I was indoors for a minute or back out in the elements was impressive. The speckled pelts are stunning, whoever made this particular coat took great care in the design and pattern placement. The curly lambs wool lays perfectly when the coat is open and the hood becomes a beautiful shawl around the shoulders. When the hood is on, and the coat zipped up, it provides full protection and stays in place. Adjustable sleeves allow for a perfect length. Zipper pulls are a nice addition. The only request I would have and would have appreciated would be a heavier zipper.
I have always wanted a shearling coat, actually was in the Toas store a few times several years ago, so I was aware of the quality that Overland is famous for. I am so happy with the Galina, that I decided to treat myself to a jacket and just received the Olivia in the olive green....it's stunning! So now I have 2!
