Other people recommend to order a size up, but I found the medium to fit true to size to layer a down sweater underneath. (But it gets pretty poofy if I layer my very fluffy down vest underneath.) The fit is really flattering and both the sleeves and the torso are long enough to prevent drafts. The hood is cavernous (though probably not sized for a ski helmet) but has good adjustment. My only concern is that the hardware isn't very burly; I'm worried that the zippers or the drawcords will break. But the tradeoff is the weight, which I'm willing to sacrifice for. All in all I really like this coat.

This jacket had a great fit for me (5'7", 130 lbs, small chest, big hips). It was cozy and warm, and had nice long sleeves. A plus I haven't seen on other down sweaters is that this jacket has spandex around the cuffs that hug your wrists to prevent drafts up the arms. Not sure how durable the spandex will be over the long haul, but out of the bag it's really nice. As others have noted, you can see some dark feathers through the very thin shell fabric (in the jade color), but the flattering shape, super light weight, and coziness outweigh the spots for me. Just not crazy about the white zipper.

This jacket was okay, but I returned it for a couple of reasons. I wasn't crazy about the white zipper in the pictures, and it didn't win me over in person either. Also, the fit was a little funky for me. (I'm 5'7", 130lbs, small on top with big hips.) There's a very defined hourglass shape to the jacket, which is good, but it's actually a little TOO defined and flares out too far on the bottom (even with my big hips). It just made me look huge. The pros: definitely lightweight, great long sleeves, and seemed to be good construction. Oh well.
