This jacket was alright, but the shiny black had the look of black garbage bags. The zipper was a bit stiff and it would be impossible for me to wear comfortably if it was zipped all the way up. Despite being an XS, it was too large for me (making me think even more of a big black trash bag). I'm guessing it would be okay if you had 2 or 3 layers underneath. I'm 5'6" and 125-130 lbs. I like Outdoor Research, North Face and Patagonia down sweaters much better.
Hands down - great jacket!! But it might be too small under some ppl arms. I am 5.7", my chest 33.5", waist 24", I have some muscles on my shoulders.I bought it in size XS. I found this jacket being short for my arms and tight under-armpits. Great around my torso. Planning to reorder in size SM, but thinking that size up is going to give me "loose torso". Will see.

Bought the gold print and love it. Usually buy my jackets in a medium to get a sweater under them. This jacket and another obermeyer tend to run large. I had to downsize to a small and it was still very roomy. I am 5'6'' size 34B and 124 lbs. It has ample room in the chest and shoulder area. I don't suggest sizing up with this jacket.

This is a quality light-weight sporty down jacket with a traditional strongly flared cut and somewhat long waist. If your are taller and have a curvy figure, it may work well. The overall quality of the jacket seems high and it it is a nice looking coat. If it had fit my daughters thin frame, we could have kept it, but as mentioned, it really would look best on a taller person seeking a more traditional, feminine cut. For the right person, this is a very good buy.
