Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

I have waited to write a review on this coat bc I wanted to live in it for atleast a month first. When I first opened up this coat I thought it was awfully light weight and thin which worried me. I called marmot and they explained its 700 down fill meant that it was going to be light weight but would affect the warmth. I decided to trust them and I tried it- it fit perfectly. I bought an xs in black- for reference I am 5'4 and my weight can vary between 110-115lbs. I am very petite, flat chested and carry most of my weight in my bottom half. The fit of this coat is very flattering and I have enough room to comfortablely layer sweatshirts and sweaters underneath if I wanted to. The fleece lined pockets are great and even on 20 degree days I can shove my hands in them if I forget gloves and I am completely fine. So about the actual function of this coat- I live in Boston and walk to work everyday so I truly did my research to find a coat that would help me survive this winter. We have had wind, rain, sleet, snow and temperatures ranging from below zero to 45 degrees so far this winter (gotta love new England weather) and I can honestly say that this coat has not failed me once in any situation. Don't be fooled by it's light weight build- this coat will keep you toasty warm, it's breathable and is absolutely water/wind resistant (I walk over a bridge on my commute). I personally think the hood is wonderful and even in extremely strong winds it stays on my head. Yes, the jacket does make a bit of a squeaky sound and at first it was aggravating me for a few days. Then I realized that most down coats make atleast some type of swishy sound (as I pass many fellow down coat commuters on my way to work) and that I wasn't going to give up on an amazing coat and being protected from the elements bc of it making a sound. Also, it doesn't make the noise when I walk. It's mostly just when I am slipping my arms through when putting on the coat. Hope this review helps if you are looking into purchasing this coat!
