Will do the job, but is very different from the women's jacket...
I'm 5'3" and 115 lbs. I thought I could get away $79 cheaper by purchasing a girl's XL instead of a women's small. The women's small fit great throughout the body, but the hood was too big and sat too far back on my head and I couldn't get it to adjust well. (I like having use of the hood because it doesn't squish my hairstyle) I tried on the girl's XL and it was a bit shinier, although not as shiny as the photo depicts, so that's good. I agree w/Nina, though - the cut is unflattering. The hood fit perfectly on the girl's jacket, so that was the deciding factor for me. I think that maybe after a week of wearing it, I won't care or remember that the women's looked better.
