This jacket fell into my design after locating another jacket which wasnt available. However, now that my daughter has it in use... this is beautiful on her, and no complaints of being cold.
She is a tiny thing, sensitive to cold and was very pleased wearing her new jacket wherever we go. The styl... Read More

    It is definitely feels like a medium. I read the reviews that said to order a size up & I looked at another Columbia jacket I have before I ordered and it was XL and I have plenty of room. This XL barely fits with a sweatshirt underneath. I was going to return it, I wanted it for a trip to Alaska in May and wanted a non-bulky jacket, this did fit the bill. I did order another jacket but wasn't happy with it. The Darling II has all the bells & whistles - waterproof, omni-heat inside, plenty of pockets, removable hood, so I decided to keep it. It is snug (but I am losing weight ). With the underarm zippers open, there is more room and luckily we are having a cold spell right now so I can check out what I can get away with wearing underneath. It would get five stars except for the sizing.

    Would have been a great ski jacket. Has all the feature I wanted...except the hood is not helmet compatible.
    But bottom line is that is didn't fit me well. It is too tight in the arm pit area. I thought the next size up would be too big everywhere else.
    I'm 5' 105 lbs. and got the small.

    Very flattering fit, comfortable and just the right number of pockets. I thought the fabric was solid blue and was pleasantly surprised to find that it has a subtle pattern in it. The color also looks better in person than in the photo. I think the thumb holes are annoying though. I don't use them. I bought the jacket for skiing, but I think I'll wear it all the time.

    I bought the jacket for my mother who is 5'1" and wears a size petite 8 pant and a petite small or petite med on top depending on the top. I ordered her the small and it was too small; sent it back. Ordered the medium and it was too small; sent it back. Ordered her the large and she said it felt as if it wasn't put together right "felt funny"; sent it back. Nice looking jacket and it was rated for -40F so it would have been perfect for where she lives in that regard but it was at least two sizes too small. I suspect my mother wasn't used to the idea of having underarm vents and that was what felt "funny." So I said I would recommend to a friend but I qualify that with only if they started by ordering 2 sizes up to start with and then it might work for them. It is a nice looking jacket and I would have loved to have had one for myself but knew they didn't have one 2 sizes up from what I wear. I wasn't sure what to rate this one. So I went for the middle of the road.

    I bought this jacket for my daughter, and she's never had a coat that she loves so much. It's extremely warm and she loves the color and the built in fingerless gloves. Pockets have lots of space and zip easily with gloves. Runs slightly small, so if you like a jacket with lots of extra room for layers, I would order a size up.
