Closeouts. With a lighter weight than a traditional winter coat, but featuring toasty Thermaglow Mid insulation and critically sealed seams, Lole's Masella jacket helps you weather the storm from blustery fall day to first-day-of-winter snowfall.

I am 5'1" and 105 pounds. The XS small is for a much taller person - in both torso and arms. Sleeves came well past my fingertips. The jacket is made of nice waterproof material that is a stylish gray/black. Inside has soft fleece along collar and back. Overall the jacket is very heavy (both weight and warmth). I was a little surprised by other reviewers who wear it while biking. I ended up returning it.

I’ve had this coat for a few months, so I’ve tested it quite well, and I love it!! I wanted a waterproof, warm coat, longer than a jacket, that I could bike in in mild-cold, often wet, San Francisco. This works fantastically well: It’s waterproof yet breathable, and, most importantly, long enough to cover your ass and keep you warm and dry AND has a two-way zipper (a feature I always look for, so useful) so you can comfortably bike. It’s warm enough that I only need 1 layer when biking to and from work in 40-50s SF night (windy, cold) yet it was also warm enough (and well cut and comfortable enough) to accomodate a few more layers (by no means Michelin) and still look nice and feel fine walking in freezing Chicago.
My favorite unexpected bonus detail is the way the snaps (an alternative, additional, closure to the zipper) are sewn on a separate piece of tape (hard to describe, invisible in the photos) which I initially took as an esthetic touch, but soon realised is an ingenious design feature that enables you snap it shut with one hand (for instance while you're biking, if you want a little more/less ventilation)!
