    Bought this coat LAST winter after lots of shopping (both in stores & online, reading all the reviews). I was hunting for a LONGER-styled everyday-winter-jacket; most of the jackets available were only hip-length, &, I wanted one that would be mid-thigh to keep the cold winds out while I went on my daily 1 hr walks with my dog. This jacket is a perfect length for keeping the wind from freezing me - it is mid-thigh. I bought a Large which fits well; I am 5'6", 130 lbs.. For a 'puff'-type jacket, it is relatively unbulky-looking compared to other puff-jackets; it has a more flattering line to it, sort-of figure-shaped without being tight or body-hugging; it is still roomy. The collar is perfect height for keeping out the wind. I usually just wear a hat instead of using the hood, unless it is snowing/wet weather because the hood is cut large - it comes forward too far so it kind of blocks your vision; but, it does the job well of keeping the weather out. My only complaint is the zipper; when you put on the jacket you have to be very attentive/careful about pulling up the zipper because it tends to catch the fabric in it very easily & then takes some finessing to get it uncaught when that happens; you can't just zip-up hurriedly & run out the door without paying attention. It is frustrating/annoying when you're in a hurry. It would have been better to have a heavy-duty zipper with big-teeth instead of this lighter-weight zipper that catches the fabric. The zipper does zip from both directions, which is nice to be able to unzip from the bottom if you are shoveling snow or doing something where you want to free your legs more. The hidden hand pockets also have the light-weight zippers; although they do not catch, the zippers are inconvenient if you like to keep your hands in your pockets. The ribbed inner cuffs are great for keeping the cold out. I got the brown color, which is just beautiful! This jacket keeps me warm without added layers into the 30's. I love this jacket! The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is the zippers.

    This jacket looks nice and keeps me warm in colder temps (30-40 degrees). The length and fit of the (size small) coat is just right for me (I'm about 4'11 and wear sizes 2-4). I'm glad to find something that wraps the body yet doesn't look like a sleeping bag.

    I like the coat very much but it is to small. I ordered a large but need an extra large because it is to confining for me, so I have to take it back.
