Fits like a coat should

This coat arrived and it smelled like a famous name brand laundry detergent. Since I'm allergic to perfume I washed it, which wasn't a problem. Before throwing in the wash I measured the length from the drop tail hem and it was 24" on size med., not the 25 1/2" as specified. It also didn't fit as well as the one I tried on in the store lengthwise. The one in the store was a bit longer and slightly tapered in at the hips. So I can only surmise someone washed and dried it before returning and it shrunk or else this is why it is a second or both. However, at this price it is a wonderful coat. I love the sherpa lining, nylon lined sleeves, storm cuffs, heavy duty zipper, and hood. I was out in 30-40 mph wind, with 50-55 mph gusts and the wind moved me, but didn't get through the coat! The pockets are extremely handy and I like how I don't have to baby this coat along. Also, don't have to take some layers off to wear this coat. I get a lot of appreciative looks and compliments on this coat, too. Highly recommend.
