It was difficult for me to order a size down, but so many reviews indicated this. I'm a pretty consistent size medium in Carhartt, etc., but got the small. The measurements on the small are 26" length, 19" across seam to seam on shoulders, 24" sleeve from shoulder seam, sleeve from center back about 31", upper sleeve width 19" around, and chest from under the arms is 44". The color is a beautiful dark chocolate brown, prettier in person. I like the pockets, nylon lined sleeves, hood that fits and doesn't obscure vision, but roomy. The collar also comes up to my neck providing warmth against the cold and wind, so I don't have to search for a scarf and can just grab the jacket and go. Only four stars is because it seems somewhat disproportionate to me with the bulky shoulders/arms in relation to the body. That might soften hopefully with time and washing, as the fabric is quite stiff. At least it isn't confining. Also, the sherpa lining isn't as thick as the Carhartt Sandstone Berkley vest. I can still wear a heavier sweater and shirt under this. Also the two snaps on the sleeves adjust to help keep cold air out. It arrived smelling new, with tags. Happy with jacket!
