I LOVE this jacket. I am very petite, just over 5' tall, and it is challenging to find items that fit my body type. This jacket hits just at the hip and isn't too long. The hood is awesome and extends just beyond the forehead. Nice, snug fit. A bit tight below the armpits and when the neck is fully zipped, but I am hoping the fabric will give a little with time and wear. Great for layering with light stuff underneath. A little snug for layering with a sweater or heavy sweatshirt. Perfect for all around wear and travel!
