I am LOVING this coat. I have been wearing it for the past few days and it has far exceeded my expectations. My favorite part is the higher neck on the coat. I used to have a puffy black down coat by Eddie Bauer and had to wear a scarf with it. With the TNF coat, I don't even need one (yet, anyway. Let's talk again when it's below zero). The temps in Chicago have fallen below 30 degrees, and this coat is doing it's job. Since I have an active Lab, a warm coat is essential for our daily walks. The furry hood is also a big plus. I like that it flips down for extra coverage/warmth.

The only thing I would change about this coat is the pockets. I would make them fleece lined.

As for fit, I am 5ft. 7in and normally wear a size 6/8 pants and Sm/Med. tops. I bought a Medium in this coat and it fits perfectly. Definitely fitted, but in a good way.

So far, so good. I have this particular pair in black and red. I love the cushion in them and after buying my first pair of Smartwool socks 2 weeks ago, I now own 13 pairs! I love wearing them with my leather boots. My feet never get hot like they used to in regular socks, even with my "long" boots. Such a relief! My only gripe is, I found a ton of the Smartwool socks listed on here at Nordstrom Rack for $9. After I bought a bunch of them on here for $13 with a discount code. Now I know, I guess! :)

Either a medium or a large should fit you. The medium would probably be a little tight, so if you like wearing sweaters, go with the large.This is a tough call. I wear a 6/8 on the bottom and got a Medium. It fits snugly on me, so you might want to go with a Large. My only concern with that though, is the sleeves would be too long on you. I'm 5 ft. 7in. and the sleeves fit perfectly in the Medium. The Large might have you drowning. In summary, it's a total crap shoot! Sorry! :)

It does because it is not a glossy material... I use the non-sticky lint remover and it works fine & is still waterproof. Got my coat last year from backcountry and it is the warmest coat I own, I love it.I agree- it DOES attract lint for the reason Mrs. C mentioned above. I found this out after having the coat for a single day and going to the salon for a haircut. It was returned back from the coat closet with everyone else's pet hair and lint attached to it. Annoying, yes, but I was able to brush it all off easily.
