Got this coat for early Christmas so I was able to wear it by early December when the temps dropped a few times. It will keep you warm yet it does not feel bulky. Love the belt, adds a little shape but can also wear it open. The "heathered" wool material and plaid makes it look rugged with jeans and boots yet you can still dress it up. It is comfy and soft and got compliments from my hubby :-) Oh, I am petite and short so ordered the XS but still have to fold the sleeves.

I would characterize this as a belted pea coat. I was reluctant to purchase a coat that was 50% wool and 50% polyester, out of concern that it would be less warm than 100% wool and that it might pill or otherwise not wear well. I have only worn it half-a-dozen times, so it is too soon to tell how it will wear, but it is warm. With weather in the low '20's, it is very comfortable. I was also concerned that, without a top button, it would be drafty. It doesn't gap open, and, with a scarf, it is fine. You could easily add a loop and button at the top if it seems necessary. The fabric has a fuzzy, mohair-like effect and is very soft. The detailing, including the belted sleeves and buttoned back yoke, is very attractive. I ordinarily wear a 4 and ordered size small, which fits nicely. There is just enough room in the chest. The fit through the hips is trim, which I like.
