Pros: Very warm throughout body, sleeves, and hood; long sleeves with inner cuffs keep cold out; fleece inner lining keeps back warm; high collar covers chin, and faux fur around hood holds warmth around face; dark olive color OK; reasonably flattering design. I disagree with the reviewer who criticized the faux fur, doesn't seem any different from what I've seen on other coats.

Cons: Sizing! I always wear a size small (5'6", 115 lbs), but this coat in the small fit too tight at armholes and chest. The small was otherwise just about right for me, although snug; sleeve length was very good for my long arms. Had to buy the medium to get enough room in the armholes. But the medium-size sleeves and coat length are a bit much for me, giving a bit of a baggy look, almost as if wearing a man's coat.

This is my second Marmot down coat, and they've been godsends in Montreal and Boston winters. Marmot just needs to get women's sizing right! Otherwise -- a great coat.
