The jacket ran a size large, in my opinion. It's roomy compared to other Mediums and the sleeves were way too long, so I think sizing down would be a perfect fit. I was unable to find any flaws or blemishes with the jacket after careful examination for all that this is of "2nds" quality. It's a thicker jacket for colder weather, and it would appear to be great for chilly weather. The gentleman friend has the men's version and loves it - he's been wearing it in the cooler ND/SD weather and says he hasn't found anything to complain about. The thermal lining is a really nice plus. It gets 4 stars because I'm living vicariously through the gentleman friend, but also because the sizing is a tad off in my opinion. Other reviewers have also noted this brand runs large.
For reference, I'm 5'3", 34-28-40, broad shoulders, usually a Medium, occasionally a Large in outerwear. Sadly I had to return, but am keeping an eye out for a Small to become available!
