As described in other reviews, this jacket runs large. I am 6 feet, 192 pounds, usually wear a large, but ordered medium after reading the other reviews. Even the medium is quite roomy, but I cannot imagine ordering a small. There is nothing small about me! It feels loose and blousy unless I have a sweater on underneath, then it is a good fit, but that is a lot of layers. This is not a Fall jacket. We're talking freezing weather before this comes out. The jacket is well made, substantial but not overly heavy. It is multi- layered. It is a jacket within a jacket with the zippered portion covered by the down and microsuede outer jacket. It is best for outdoor events over a base layer and sweater. It is very toasty but takes a while to get in and out of with all the buttons. I would not use it for daily use, but some days it is just right. Warm. If the temperature exceeds 40 degrees, this is almost too much coat. It is a Winter jacket for cold and blustery days.
