Q: Please does the coat have a two-way zip? (Useful for in and out of vehicles)
A: Yes, it does have a two-way zip.
Q: Please is this coat cut like an Alpha M65 jacket (in my opinion one of the most successfully functional of garments)? Is it an "A" cut like an M65, or straight, or tapered like a "slimfit"?

Q: Is this a proper Alpha N3B and is it the best Alpha N3B in terms of quality and warmth? Also, are there any other versions, since I have seen some advertised with a cotton outer shell etc, is this nylon shell?

Reviews (any views expressed are solely those of the reviewer)
I bought this for my girlfriend who's always moaning she's cold when we sit outside our favourite country pub. She no longer moans. The coat is extremely warm (we sat out for hours in the snow recently) without ever seeming to become uncomfortable and is as well made as any Alpha product. I bought the coat over a year ago and it still looks like new, despite numerous outings in all weathers.
Pros: Worth every penny!, Well made, Warm
Cons: It's bulky to drive in.
Sizing: Feels large
Would recommend: Yes
