I don't have one, but I do know a few people who do. They are GORGEOUS! They got them handmade from a lady in Nunavut (a territory here in Canada). If I had enough money, I would have bought one, but they are very expensive. I have a babywearing coat though!

They are sold exclusively through northern Canadian retailers, apparently the Inuit have a special agreement to produce them exclusively, you literally get it from an Inuit lady handcrafting it in her house. I believe around $350-400 Canadian? That seems cheap for one, I'll double check. I really want one too (and I live in frigid snowland) but still couldn't afford for now.

The prices I looked at were $600+ for a winter one. They have different warmths of coats - so a lighter coat is less expensive. I agree with Aliss that the price is good for a handmade beautiful coat - it was just too expensive for us! Especially if it wasn't my everyday coat.

Yeah i dont think i could afford one at that price tbh! i would need like the lightest one they do as well, and would only be able to use it in winter. However i still want one, desperately.

i heard that you can make one out of a normal coat, i think im going to look in to it some more then purchase a nice coat from the charity shop and see if i cant make it in to one.
