I thought this was going to be the coat for me, after doing all kinds of web-based research on coats. So I was disappointed when it came and it wasn't right for me. The down was puffier than I had expected, especially in the arms. It would definitely keep you warm, no question, but I wish it had less filling in the arms because it would've been difficult to fit even a light sweater underneath and avoid looking like a snowman. The fabric was a little stiffer than I had expected. That said, it has a nice feminine shape and if you wear a size 4 or smaller, it will probably look great. (I'm in the size 8-10 category). I think North Face tends to run small, this one included. I purchased a size large and it fit properly. I am ordering the Patagonia Ice Field jacket instead for the less puffy primaloft and better fit.
