Not for me

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

I had been eyeing this coat for a while but couldn't justify the price. I tried it on a while back and am almost certain it was a medium. It felt amazing. I own several other better sweaters and have dealt with the pilling issue. I love them despite that (but only buy on sale). So when I found this coat on sale I made the splurge. Unfortunately, I am sending it back. I am almost 5'7" and about 115#. I ordered the medium as my other better sweaters are medium and fit great (I do not like anything too fitted and like to layer); however, this felt very large to me. I am sure the small would fit better but I worry about the sleeves being too short. The feel is comfortable and cozy and I like the style...but alas, due the sizing, the potential for pilling and the fact that I really don't need it (and even on sale it is a splurge for me), I am sending it back!

Love it so far!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large

Just got my coat. I love the style and flattering details. Nice band around ribs gives a more feminine shape. I ordered XL. Patagonia seems to run small for me. Fits perfectly. I am 5'9", broad shouldered and have a large bust. Bonus--Sleeves are long enough!

Nervous able pilling after reading review below. Keep you posted.

Pilling problem:(

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I wanted to love this because it was the perfect length and the perfect amount of cozy. But after ten days of daily wear there is pilling galore. For the price, I realized I didn't want a jacket that looked three years old in only ten days. I had it in black. If you invest in a sweater shaver and love this enough you could make it work. I am a busy Mother and business owner and want a jacket I can hang up when I get home and put on in the morning and always have it look great! I would have been shaving this every other night to keep it looking presentable, not the coat for me:( I kept thinking maybe it is better in the light gray because you would not notice the pilling so much as I did with the black. Good luck ladies. I hope you have better luck than I did.

BEST coat. EVER.

  • Gender: Female

Just got this in the mail today. I ordered the Dark Walnut in a size XL (wear a 14/16) and it fits PERFECTLY. The colar is beautiful and the band at the waist is very figure flattering. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an alternative to a down jacket.

Awesome Fall Coat for Everyday

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love this coat for everyday wear for Fall in Park City. Cool mornings in this comfy coat are not a problem. Great quality for the price. I have the grey and I want the brown and black now too! I ordered a Medium and I am 5'6 130 lbs, but the small would be much better as I could fit three sweaters on underneath the medium. I will order a small in the other colors.

Better Sweater Fleece Coat

Is it a coat? Is it a sweatshirt? Is it a tunic? Is it a dress? Possibly all of the above! I love this thing! So super cozy and soft. I have worn it with tights and a tank top underneath. I've worn it with t-shirts and jeans. I always get compliments on it. It washes well and hasn't pilled yet. I'm a true medium and find this runs true to size.

Responded on

may I ask what your height is? I'm gonna get one for my wife. She is 5'1. Broad shoulders xfit type. We in KC so winters are humid and cold.

Responded on

I'm 5'6" and about 135lbs. I feel like I have fairly broad shoulders as well. She'd probably need a small or maybe even an XS because of her height.
