Wanted to love

I've been looking for a warm and versatile jacket for this winter. I wanted to love this but it really isn't versatile. First, as another review said the metal Brandi g plate on the sleeve seems awkward... and too apt to catch on something. Next, I'm a petite woman and ordered a regular size but this jacket was really short on me. I'm not looking for a parka but this barely touched the top of my jeans when I tried it on. The deal breaker for me was the fur on the hood. It's HUGE. You can take it off, but it will take you 10 minutes to button it back on. I can see the buttons eventually becoming loose and a problem if you leave the fur on. Finally, there are only two pockets. Based on the original retail and description of this jacket I was really expecting better. I also ordered according yto my measurements and feel like I'd only be able to comfortably wear a base layer under it. So if you want to wear it around town with a sweater or something underneath, order a size up.
