Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Reviewed by KC from Portland, Oregon on Friday, December 23, 2016I'm 5'2" 140 pounds and bought a medium based on reviews. It was huge on me in all respects and the sleeves were practically at the end of my fingers. I then exchanged it for a small, and while the torso was snug (not entirely attractively so-- the collar was stiff-looking) the bicep areas were baggy and just didn't look good. The arms were still too long. I don't think I will keep it. It is, however, a surprisingly heavy coat and toasty warm. I would not recommend this coat for petite women at all, and it might look much better on taller women with longer arms.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Qiqi from New York on Friday, December 9, 2016I always like Icebreaker jackets, but this jacket is special. I just love it.
Reviewed by Kate from southeast Michigan on Monday, March 28, 2016Wow, finally! While I'd been shopping for *ages* it seems for a sort of transitional work / barn jacket. Coming up with nil in my price range, and then this appeared as an item after a serious search on STP. It is cozy & warm, with all natural fibres. It's all wool and organic cotton, so it doesn't have that scratchy plastic-y feel and sound that you get with so many of those high-tech synthetics. Might get it Scotch-guarded, as I really want something that will stay weather-resistant.
The one thing I wish it had was either a two-way zipper or maybe vented side zips, for more mobility and easier access to pants pockets or whatever. If you have hips or a booty--which I do not--this is probably *not* a good fit for you. It's hard for me to find outerwear that I'm not swimming in. The XS would have been too close a fit. Sleeves are a tad long, but that's fine for a little extra coverage. I am 5'3" and 110 lbs., and typically I wear an XS, size 2 or 4. So far, I've been very pleased with other Icebreaker products, although they can run on the wee tiny side, even for me.
Even on sale, it was a bit pricey for me, but it feels & looks so good--it's a keeper. The original MSRP would have been way out of my league (somewhere around $400). Still, what a deal I got here on this jacket!! It's still selling for $250-300 elsewhere in late March 2016.
