I deliberated for ages about whether to get a small or a medium in this jacket. I'm 5'6" and about 135-140lb. In loose fitting jackets I usually go for medium and for work clothes, a small. I went into the local TNF shop and still couldn't decide. There is a significant difference between the sizes- particularly in the length. Normally I find it's the width that changes from size to size but in this jacket there is about an inch difference between the medium and small in the length which I think it a lot, particularly if you're long in the body (which Im not particularly). In the end I went for the small and I'm happy with my choice. I wanted it for milder conditions because where I live we get more rain in spring and summer than winter. I wanted something that would look OK with only one layer underneath. I think my advice on sizing would be this: if you plan to wear two or more layers underneath and like room to move, go with your regular size. Otherwise, size down. Unfortunately it hasn't rained here for the past 8 weeks so I can't comment on its function as a rain jacket but I must say I'm really pleased I chose the petticoat pink. It's not as bright as the picture and what you don't see is that it has a really nice dark blue (not quite navy) trim along the zipper. I can see me buying this in a few more colors if it ever comes on sale.
