I first ordered this parka in a medium. I am 5'6" and weigh 140#. After trying it on several times I decided that the L might be a better fit in the shoulders so I exchanged it. It does fit me better and any extra bulk is compensated for by snugging in the waistline a bit. That creates a very flattering silhouette. The length is perfect for keeping warm in the coldest conditions and I have still room for layering. I bought this parka to take on a trip this fall to Bhutan and I think it will be perfect for visiting sights at higher elevations. The hood is adjustable and the "fur" trim can be removed if desired. I like the lining at the arm openings and I expect to be warm and comfortable regardless of the wind and cold. Then the fact that it is waterproof is perfect. Even walking for a few hours in rainy or snowy conditions should be just fine while wearing this jacket. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase.
