I'll be moving there one day soon but I'll face that crisis on the flight home!
Yes. That arctic liner and the fleece collar are serious business. Definitely designed to carry the load in keeping you warm. And the NR outer fabric and construction is entirely weather proof in my limited experience. Don't want it to get too cold too fast but I am looking forward to wearing my Moscow.
Case-in-point: I purchased my Moscow late last season (but in time for our mini-blizzard) and can't wait to pull it out at the first freeze this year! Long live shearling lined hoods.
