I am a petite woman (5ft tall about 95lbs) and wanted a coat that fit me right. I have problems finding coats that the sleeves fit and are not too long on me, among other issues. This coat fit me great and worked fine for a while. I did find that it isn't 100% waterproof. I live in Portland, OR and we get a lot of rain - my clothing under the coat did get wet occasionally and I was really unhappy with that. Also, it seems to wear horribly. I say that my purse strap wore into the shoulder after a month or so and that wasn't the only place the fabric was starting to fray. For the money I was hoping it would last me a few years and it didn't even make it 4 months. Not happy and returned item.
