I purchased the coat one size larger than what I buy clothes in so I would have room for sweaters underneath and that worked out well. Without a sweater, the sleeves are a little long, but I don't mind that at all. The coat is warm and I've gotten compliments on it every time I've worn it. I haven't tested it in REALLY cold weather, just around freezing, but I did ride my bike while wearing the coat on a cold night and I didn't feel the chill at all. The navy blue is VERY dark, so if you're not wearing black or standing next to something for comparison, it appears black. As someone else mentioned, I do miss slash pockets, but I'll get used to it. I probably shouldn't be walking around with my hands in my pockets all the time anyhow.
