Verified Buyer Reviewed by Long Tall Jeanne from Minneapolis, MN on Wednesday, January 18, 20175' 10", lanky, 145 lbs,, small-busted, broad-shouldered, and the L fit perfectly: sleeves were long enough, fit was fitted without being tight with a sweater underneath. I'm typically a M in tops, 8-10 if sizing, with long arms/legs, but I'm finding a M in this and any similar coat across brands is too snug (perhaps OK with only one layer underneath?). Loved the raspberry color. This coat would be perfect in temps in the teens and above, or in colder temps if needed for going from home to car to work.
HOWEVER, I needed something for walking in single and sub-zero temps and this wasn't it. During my 3-degree dog-walk test, my backside and thighs were chilly (the fleece lining stops around upper hip and it was noticeable), the breeze snuck in at the zipper (the inside zipper placket wasn't enough), and the hood wasn't large enough for the fur to provide facial warmth. This went back and I turned to a men's parka for a big hood, zipper plackets, sleeves to my knuckles, lots of big pockets, warmth to my thighs...I feel like a minion, but I know I'll be warm if I tip over!
Depending on your needs, this would be a lovely coat! 4 stars instead of 5 because of sizing -- my normal size wouldn't fit well over typical winter clothing.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Swissy Mom from Illinois on Monday, January 2, 2017I purchased this exact style coat elsewhere and decided to purchase one for my elderly mother who is moving back to the upper Midwest from Florida this month. So happy that I found it at Sierra Trading Post. She loves the plum color and it is weighs next-to-nothing but is sooooo warm.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Maddy from Idaho on Monday, December 26, 2016This coat is awesome. It is great for snow and very cold conditions. It hasn't been above freezing in a week and this is my go to coat. I love the removable hood and double sided zipper. I am a size 12, 5'6 tall. The large fits me perfect with enough room for a fleece or sweater under.
Reviewed by Hb from Colorado on Wednesday, December 7, 2016Love the color. Went for walk in 10 degrees weather and kept me warm. Probably would have been fine with a size medium, my usual size, but I sized up to large to be sure I can wear bulky sweaters underneath. Yes it's a little big on me, sleeves are a bit long, but that's ok, very happy with it.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Fritz from Wisconsin on Tuesday, December 6, 2016Great coat I purchased for my daughter. Everything she wanted in a super warm winter coat. Great price!
