Verified Buyer Reviewed by Libby from Bethlehem on Sunday, January 20, 2013What a shame. This coat was so, so small. I usually wear a 6/8 and ordered up as suggested by the other comments. The coat still didn't fit. It was a great disappointment and I had to return it.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by SimonaG from Mattapoisett, ma on Tuesday, December 25, 2012I love this coat. The only thing is that the neck stap that adjusts the fur collar needs a few more holes to make it tighter around the neck. Otherwise, it is a bauty of a coat.
Reviewed by Anonymous2 from Boston on Saturday, October 6, 2012This coat is sooo cute! You will look like a snow bunny in it. haha! But, there are a couple things you should know before you buy it. It is fitted close to the body. It runs a BIT small. I wear a Medium or 8-10 in coats. I ordered the Medium in this coat, and the sizing info said that this Medium is for sizes 10-12. Well, the coat fits me, but it's just shy of being a little tight. So, for those of you who are a size 12, you might want to order the Large. Secondly, the faux leather straps look kind of cheap, which I don't like, but again, the coat as a whole is so stylish, I can ignore that. Also the straps are rather loose fitting around the faux fur, which might eventually annoy me because when wearing it, the cuff straps will probably fall or shift and then they won't be parallel like they are in the picture. I tried fastening the cuff straps one hole tighter but then the cuffs looked weird. And, the collar does NOT look like the picture when fastened!! The photo must have been styled very carefully. In real life, there aren't enough loops holding the collar strap all around the collar; as a result, once fastened, it will shift and ride up. But, the collar still looks really cute without being fastened. Also, this is solidly a "for looks" coat. It's NOT a practical coat for everyday winter wear, or if you spend a lot of time with kids or pets. The straps could get caught on things getting in/out of your car (or riding the bus/subway)...your kids might grab the straps or they'll get caught on things getting your baby in and out of the car seat. This is a fashion forward, slightly dressy coat that would be good for date night, dress-up, or wandering around the snow-flecked city with your husband or girlfriends on the weekends. Finally, I'd like to add that I got the green color and I found it to be true to the color in the picture.
- Cons: Faux leather
- Pros: Stylish
Reviewed by Jyllzie from San Francisco Bay Area on Wednesday, September 26, 2012Pretty and unique, great color green. The faux fur looks and feels real. Loved the mixed materials. Got a large (14-16) worried that it might be too big. The opposite...I usually wear a 12 in a coat but I have large shoulders and arms. This fit like a 10. The pockets are a little too close to the center. Would have looked better if they were a little lower and closer to side seams. The wool material is rather soft, not as structured as a normal winter coat. The zippers on the pockets were a little difficult to unzip and therefore I could see the soft fabric at the pocket zippers not holding up over time if used often.
- Cons: Pocket placement, Runs Small
- Pros: Faux fur looks real, Unique Design
Verified Buyer Reviewed by skier girl from Cleveland, ohio on Thursday, September 20, 2012Was hoping this would be THE coat...but returned...size M had short arms...size L was too big in body. I'm 5'8" and thought I could pull off this look but even if it had fit, there was just too much going on with the design (leather over fur, etc.) It's the kind of coat I think I'll admire seeing on someone else though.

The CoVelo Antarctica Coat is not lined and there is no variation in the fur between the two colors of the jacket. Thanks for asking and have a great day.
