    the small has no extra room in chest and the bottom of coat is a little too wide and breezy for my narrow hips but I'm keeping the coat the top is cozy and more elegant in person great inner cuffs but from waist down not that warm

    I love this jacket, especially its length. As with all Marmot items, it's well made in all respects. I only wish there were more interior pockets. It runs a little small--I ordered a medium, which fits perfectly, although I usually wear a size 4.

    This jacket arrived last week and I've worn it every day since. It's incredibly soft and flattering. I've received so many compliments. Full disclosure: I live in Coastal Northern California and our temps haven't dipped below the high 20s, but for someone constantly cold, this coat eliminates the damp chill. The only reason I give it 4/5 is the zipper. Mine is a bit wonky at the base, and doesn't seem to close securely at the bottom. Otherwise, highly recommend!

    Got this jacket to be a warm barn coat. Love the fleecey interior but the smooth sleeves. This works best for me with a t-shirt and thin sweatshirt if I'm going to be working hard and an extra fleece or sweatshirt if I'm going to have periods of inactivity. It's not super warm just for standing around. The magnetic fasteners for the flap are magical. I hadn't noticed that in the specifications but instead of press studs there are little magnets that keep the flap over the zipper. Love. It sheds water from snow or light rain. Haven't tried it in drenching weather, I don't think it's supposed to be waterproof. It also is easy to brush off hay and shavings and mud from horse lips!!! I am loving this coat.

    The Marmot Alderbrook Down Parka - 700 Fill Power is perfect! I needed a 'puffy jacket' for a trip to the Arctic this winter and, after listening to the advice of cold weather friends, I knew what to look for in a jacket. This one meets all the points I was told to watch for: It is a jacket, but long enough to cover my hips and bottom - better for keeping me warm! It has a soft, warm lining, also in the sleeves (with 'wrist cuffs') so wind won't get up the sleeves. The neck is high and also roomy enough for me to wear a wool scarf comfortably around my neck. The magnetic flap along the zipper will also add warmth. I purchased a *size larger than my usual size as the jacket does have a snug fit. The larger size allows for layering with ease.

    *I first ordered my regular size, but returned it because it was too snug to allow layering beneath. Sierra Trading Post's telephone customer service lady was so nice!! Very helpful and courteous. She made the exchange to a larger size a very easy procedure.

    I only wish the jacket had a hood, but having to wear a woolen cap is a small thing considering how ideal the jacket is in every other way.

    Another plus: the jacket is incredibly light, so I can easily carry it on my arm on the plane. Or even pack it as it is possible to fold it quite small, if wished.

    This is a nice looking parka, well made, and it is warm. It has two hand warmer pockets and one inside pocket that all zip. It does not have a hood but my wife never uses a hood, so it's all good.

    I love this coat! I had been looking for a new coat for a long time that was warm but not huge and puffy. The style of this coat is perfect, sleek and slimming while also a bit sporty with the two tone. The warmth is outstanding, the fleece lining in the torso area makes it feel toasty!

    I really like this parka. I was looking for a knee length down coat but at this point in the season not much is left. I found this jacket and the color is great plus it is very warm. I just wish it were a bit longer but it is a parka so that is not its fault. I do think it should have more interior pockets to store things- one small one is not enough these days. But for warmth--it is great. I wear a size 6, am 5"4" and 126 pounds. This size 6 is snug and with a sweater really snug. I would say this is on the slim side-which means it looks nice but does not allow for too many layers.

    I have been looking for a warm coat that is light but not super puffy. This coat fits the bill. It's long enough to keep your bottom half toasty but not so long as to be difficult when getting in and out of vehicles. The two way zipper is convenient as is the additional magnet closures rather than Velcro. The knit cuffs fit nicely under the cuffs of gloves to keep you toasty. The only issue I have is the collar. If you have a short neck you can't comfortably zip it up all the way but a scarf easily solves the problem.
