Good points - coat is made of tough black fabric that can keep you warm without being too heavy.
Bad points - buttons are made out of thin plastic and can easily break. I recommend not buttoning the coat if you are into simple cosplay or replacing the buttons with something more sturdier if you want a general purpose coat. Also, the neck region has a shoelace like design that could prove awkward when taking on or removing the coat.
Overall Feeling - I like this coat. You can become a highwayman, Darkman, the Scarecrow of Romney Marsh, or any other character where a grungy looking black coat would be called for.
