Reviewed by treelvr from Virginia on Saturday, March 29, 2014I bought a large & found it to be very uncomfortable. It felt binding trying to move my arms, like it was too tight across the back or maybe the chest. But, it didn't seem to me that it was a size too small as much as it seemed to me to just be a peculiar fit. It also was not what I was expecting from the picture. So, back it went.
Reviewed by quintana roo from santa barbara on Sunday, November 17, 2013The other reviewers aren't kidding about this jacket being sized two sizes small -- I'm a petite xs and first bought a small thinking there was no way I'd need a medium. But once I tried it on it was obvious that II had to exchange it -- and the medium fits just right. Other than that, it's a fantastic jacket, nice detailing, sturdy and attractive...
Reviewed by Karen from Arizona on Saturday, July 20, 2013Several comments mentioned this ran small, but I didn't find this to be so at least for the Medium. There are pit zips under the arms that run in a semi-circle under the pit (vs. from the arm to the torso) which made for too much bulk under the armpits for me to be comfortable.
Reviewed by LMD from NH on Monday, June 10, 2013This jacket runs VERY small...I typically wear a Petite Small and ended up returning it for a Petite Large. Nice fit and very warm.
Reviewed by Indiana Gal from Indiana on Friday, March 29, 20132XL is really Large size. Diameter of sleeves too small, arm length too long, and too tight in chest and waist. Length good. Style rugged. Mine arrive with vertical slice down front of fabric as if box was carelessly opened. I am returning it.
