Perfect form AND function!
5 5

I LOVE this jacket. I've been searching high and low for a super warm lightweight parka that still managed to be flattering to the female form. After trying the Patagonia down hoody and being very disappointed by its strangely rotund design and short length, I saw the stellar reviews here about Montbell's Thermawrap. It's no lie - this jacket is amazing. First of course, it is incredibly insulating for how light it is. And the fit, perfect. I always have issues with outerwear being too short in the sleeves and body. The Thermawrap however has a fantastic 'athletic' cut. Much nicer for those to want a long and lean fit. Being 5'8"/145lbs/broad shouldered I went for a large, and it fits perfectly. (I ordered the medium as well just to be sure, and while it did fit, it was just a bit more snug than I wanted). The large has enough room to layer underneath, without looking at all bulky. Total ease of movement, great length, feels like a super warm cloud. MontBell, you have won me over!

I was having the same issue - really needing it to be longer and slimmer fitting. I'm 5'8", 142lbs. - in Women's the small fits nicely around my body, but is definitely too short, and the W's medium is a little bulky but better, though still really not long enough. Frustrating because I want to love this jacket. I tried on the men's XS version, and it would have been good except that the coat was a bit too tight around my hips, and a tad too bulky in the shoulders. Close, but not close enough to work, especially for the kind of money it costs. Unless you are very straight and narrow in the torso-hips, and have broad shoulders, I wouldn't recommend it.
