warm but tight

Verified Buyer Reviewed by ewe from Old Chatham, NY on Thursday, December 08, 2011
If I hadn't worn this jacket I would return it. I am 5'8" and the sleeves for XL are too short, I am not a wafer-thin woman, but have an athletic body, the sleeves are too tight as well. The zipper doesn't have option to unzip from bottom so that sitting on something like a horse or a snowmobile pushes coat up from the hip exposing lower back, brrrr. The hardest part of wearing this coat is pushing your arms through the sleeves, the liner fabric is so nappy that nothing but a bare arm can get through. The more I wear this coat, the less I like it. But IT IS WARM and breaks the wind very nicely.
