The color was a bit darker than the picture, more like a midnight blue. The only drawback was the pockets; pockets not deep enough to hold much. No gloves or smart phones for these pockets! Pockets designed to hold keys, pocket change, etc.
The color is a very dark navy, not quite like the color in the picture. It is constructed very well. I'm petite and the arms are just the right length, they may be short on women with longer arms. The hood is gigantic and needs to be folded over. The pockets are a bit small so its difficult to stuff gloves in them. It is very warm in the 10-30 degree weather I've experienced lately. Not too long and not too short. Overall, I recommend the coat although the price is pretty steep.
