COZY WARM, EXTRA LONG SLEEVES, BUT RUNS SMALL & ZIP NEEDS A GARAGE

Reviewed by trinityriverdog from Trinity River, CA on Friday, December 6, 2013
This is a plush and toasty warm jacket which I'd love unequivocally were it not for a few glitches: It does run small. I'm a busty size medium in most items (5'9"/160#) but bought this in large based on reviewers' comments. Even the large is a snug fit through the torso and hips and there is no give at the hem. The adjustable cinch on the hem is useless, since the jacket's so snug already.
It also sheds like crazy (I made the mistake of trying it on with a black T underneath), so I washed it along with some jeans, and they came out covered with hot pink fuzz. One reviewer said the shedding stopped after 3 washes and dryings. UGH. Everything I own will be pink by then.
It's snowing now and cold enough, I'd like to wear this jacket with a down vest over it, but my neck chafes on the zipper top because there is no zip port or garage.
But the pluses are it's warm; quite plush outside, with a less dense plush interior; it has nice pockets outside and inside; and seems to be well made in general. I'd probably exchange it for an XL, but the pink's out of stock, so I am SOL, but that's OK; I'll make do.
