this arrived so quickly, nicely packaged, and the coat is fine quality. I have many Columbia clothing items and have never experienced one so large for the sizing. I ordered a small, I am 5'4" and weigh 138 lbs....and the small was still quite big. I would have exchanged for an extra small but it isn't available. I am not unhappy, however, and will gladly wear this in cold weather

I have a faux shearling coat that I absolutely love, however, this coat is more upscale and classy. I love the look and the way it feels. I just don't like the collar and the buttons to hold the hood needs to be sewn on much tighter. Haven't worn yet but am sure I will appreciate it even more once I've started wearting it.

This is a very nice coat at a GREAT value. It was very soft and comfortable. My only problem was that I wanted a hood that was not detachable so you would not have that extra collar. Also I've been looking for a faux shearling for a long time and besides having a hood it has to be at least knee length. This coat is more of a car coat length. If those are not issues for you then this is a keeper.

i wanted a longer length, dressier coat and this fits the bill. it is heavy and warm, but the fit is slim so i don't look blocky. the sleeves are long, but that's ok with me- keeps my hands warm. quality construction. great coat!

It's pretty and soft and like the design/cut and details very much, but I wish I had known the hood was held on by bottons too. It keeps falling off as the weight of the hood stretches the button holes and they slip right off. A real pain and I've just taken it off afraid to lose it, then it snowed...ugh. Add to that that I buttoned the front for the first time yesterday and two for the closure bottons came right off as well (the thread just pulled out). I wasn't sure I wanted a botton-up coat and really wish I hadn't bought this one now.

I bought this coat based solely on the description and the word "Heavy" in its title. It is not even winter yet here in Chicago and this coat is not warm enough without layering. Very disappointed in this purchase. Also, within a week of wearing, all buttons had popped off due to not being sewn on properly. It's not like the coat was too small or anything.
