This coat is amazing - the styling is beautiful, and those pleated details add a slimming effect to an insulated coat. The fabric is incredibly water resistent and has a nice feel to it. Coat is comfy and not too warm. Insulation is more compact than I expected. Colors are great. An amazing value fr...

This jacket is super cute and very functional. I've been looking for a jacket that is good for in between seasons and this is it. Waterproof and lightly insulated so I can wear it with a light sweater or a tank top. Love this jacket.

I just received this in the mail, and to be fair, I havent worn it out in rainy or cold weather. However, from first impression this is perfect and exactly what I was hoping for.
The fit is excellent. I'm 5'6, 170 lbs. Big chest, big thighs,short torso and long legs. This being said, the fit feels perfect. The length goes to mid thigh. I ordered a large and i dont feel restricted, or like the coat is too loose. When I need to layer, It feels as though I could do so comfortably. I have slightly long arms and the sleeve length is perfect. I am a hoodie person so I love the hood. Plus, it's fashionable, flattering, and shaped...so it looks good. In terms of warmth, I live in Seattle and it doesnt get much colder than 30 degrees. We layer here, so if I add a sweater during the coldest months, I think I will be fine. For our everyday gloomy, wet, and 45 degree weather, i'm sure I will be fine.
I'm more than pleased with this item, especially considering the price.
Downsides: It still feels slightly boxy as it doesnt show of my hips as i'd hoped. The beltish type addition in the waist is lovely, but I could use a bit tighter. Secondly, the velcro is already annoying :(.

This is very nice material and well made. But the sleeves are way too long - reaching the tip of my index finger (I'm 5'4") - and they cannot be tightened at the wrist effectively. There is a tab with a snap and 2 snap-receivers on the coat - but even the tightest one would only tighten against a very very thick (10-inch?) wrist. The snaps are so unique that one wouldn't be able to match to add more. I was about to return it, but it is so nice I finally figured out how to alter it myself. Having it done would've cost way too much. I'd recommend this only for taller folk or people handy with a needle.

This is the perfect rain coat. The insulation is not overwhelming but warm as I often get cold, even in Spring rain. DONT size up! My usual LARGE was perfect. I am 5'10" and 155#. I have room for a sweater underneath. I originally ordered XL per the previous reviewers and was swimming in it. I like the length (which keeps my thighs from getting wet) and the little duck bill on the hood (which gives a little more shield if it is raining sideways). I've seen more feminine coats, but NONE offer what this one does.
