Poor fit, great fabric

Verified Buyer Reviewed by H. from Colorado on Saturday, November 29, 2014
I really, really wanted this jacket to work because I love the fabric, which is a great weight for a cool fall day with rain in the forecast. The soft fleece-like lining bonded to the inside feels great against bare skin so you could comfortably wear it over just a tee shirt. However, the fit is very poor. I have a very well-proportioned average build and the shoulders and arms just have too much extra fabric relative to the hips. I tried the jacket in both the medium (my usual size) and the large. The medium was way too tight in the hips, while the arms and shoulders were loose enough to fit a down jacket underneath. In the large the hips were OK but the arms/shoulders were absolutely HUGE. It's almost like this jacket was cut for a man instead of a woman. It's too bad because otherwise the jacket would be a keeper.
