What temperature ranges does this stuff work in?

Is it is 65F and raining, will it run too hot?

According to Alexander from Norwegian Rain the Moscow is good until -25C. (The bottom coat).

The rest are for summer/fall in Scandinavia, so you be good up until 15ish c, maybe a little warmer without sweating your ass of.

I have both the single breasted raincoat (with the detachable liner) and the Moscow for about a year so I can speak from some experience wearing the brand.

The single-breasted works fine for me from about 70 to 35ish Fahrenheit. I originally ordered the detachable liner thinking that it would work in for even colder temperatures, but with the liner, the SB becomes too small to wear over sportcoat/sweater/shirt layers in the fall, and the ribbed cuff on the liner makes it impracticable for me to wear a sportcoat under there. However, if you only wear the SB over a knit or a shirt, I think getting the liner would be great.

The Moscow can handle the cold: I live in Chicago, and this thing has kept me warm when it's 0 degrees Fahrenheit outside, with wind chill down in the -20s while waiting for the subway on an elevated, open-air platform. It is roomy enough to layer a sportcoat, sweater, and shirt over. The Moscow doesn't have a ribbed cuff, so it works better if you do decide to layer another jacket underneath it. The Moscow has a beautiful A-line silhouette that drapes wonderfully.

I wear both of these Norwegian Rain coats with both casual on the weekends and more "menswear" items during the work week, and I think they can integrate easily with both kind of aesthetics.

I thought that this was an incredibly badass garment when I saw how T Michael wears it.
The thing is: that guy probably still looks like a badass in pajamas.

Hope to see some fit pics with regular people. I bought a Rains poncho, which looked in their marketing photos, but in real life I looked like a doomsday prepper.

Re. the S-Cape - It is actually an amazing garment if you actually live in Bergen (I did for a summer) where it rains and rains and rains, and these are not showers. You can keep everything under the garment, and more importantly, the A shape will also keep your pants from getting soaked. That said, I prefer the raincho. I just got Jen one for Valentine's Day, and it is amazing. Going to get one for myself for either the spirng or next fall, either in black or, if I can find it, black herringbone. I too, wish to look like a Jedi.
I've ordered a couple of things so far from Baby and Co and they are selling Norweigan Rain coats. I believe they have that piece as well as others.

I'm so glad I sized up.
