I'm 5'6" 135-140 lbs. I know I shouldn't buy a small but I'm trying to decide whether I need a medium or a large. I'm pear shaped so my upper body's quite smaller but I don't want the coat to be at my belly button so I'm considering getting a large. Will I look HUGE in a large though?

Michelin man arms.

Agree with the reviewer below -- the puffiness of the arms is weird and unflattering (really beefy up top). The jacket is warm enough but the length is also a bit short. Weird proportions all around - might work on a kid, though?

michelin man-esque

The sleeves on this were SO poofy I could barely move my arms. I looked like a freakish burnt marshmallow/michelin-man cross breed so it had to go back. Sadness.

Hahahah oh my gosh I laughed at your comment pretty hard. I'm sorry your coat didn't work out! :( I'm trying to decide whether I should go with a medium or a large. I'm 5'6" small frame.

Love this jacket!!

Love the color, eggplant, and the fir on hood, stylish!It is super warm, I did think it was a litlle big at first, size M, I'm a size 4, 5'3" 120lbs. Usually I'm a S but because of the other reviews went up in size. Glad I did because of the length, but arms are slightly too long that's why I didn't give it 5 stars. It is pretty puffy, but not too much. Pockets could be a little deeper with gloves on or leaving gloves in pockets they barely fit.

I have this jacket and would like to purchase another fur hood trim piece. Would anyone be interested in selling their fur trim?

Great jacket

This is a great jacket. It is a shorter jacket, so don't buy if you're looking for a long winter coat. I bought an extra small for my daughter and it fits her pretty good. She is 5 feet tall and about 95 pounds. It's adorable, warm, and trendy enough for the kids.

does the fur on the jacket come off, so you can clean it with out the fur getting messed up. so can you take the fur on and off ?

Responded on

Hi Natalie the fur is easily removeable and can be taken on and off. It is faux fur so carefully washed it should be fine.

Hi I was thinking about getting this jacket for either one or both of my daughters maybe me too. My one daughter is 10 years old 5feet tall weight is about 951b, my other daughter is 8 years old she is 4feet 6inches tall about 65 ibs and I am 5 feet 7 inches and 120. What sizes do you recommend? I don't know if my 8 year old could even wear if the arms may to long. But my 10 year old is is tall with long arms. Is this a good and warm enough for snow skiing?

Responded on

Hi,

i can't comment on the sizes you need except that i think your 8 yr old daughter will not be able to take these women's sleeves as they will really be too long for her.

On the point of skiing, do note that this is a really short-length urban/casual wear jacket and so bear in mind it does not have the full features of a skiing jacket like a powder/snow skirt which keeps the snow from getting inside the jacket; as well as to keep the jacket from riding up during skiing and falls. So with the Gotham you will get some snow, especially on the back which will inevitably ride up (from a skiing posture) and in really cold/wet conditions that will not be too pleasant and you will get a cold/wet back eventually seeping in. Not fun in the long run. Lastly, the hem and cuffs are ribbed and do not allow for tightening/fastening like with a hem cinch-cord or Velcro closer so thats not snow-proof.

On the other hand, if you are tolerant of these issues, and also for the fact that you are not going for a long ski tour (eg. more than a few days, going into weeks) the Gotham might be ok (it will definitely keep you warm!). So it depends on your skiing comfort preferences (in the past) and how much tolerance your children will have.

For an idea of the length, the link below with a photo of the Gotham on a model might give a clue. It will stop at the waist level, whereas for a ski jacket you would be more comfortable with a hip length one.

THE JACKET IS SUPPOSED TO BE SHORT!!!!

if you are a person that likes long coats its not for you but if you are like me and hate long winter coats that bog you down its perfect!!! it will keep you warm without weighing u down but again its supposed to be short thats how it was designed google the jacket and you'll see they fit the same way on the models wearing them

love this jacket!

I decided to get the medium as alot of the reviews I read mentioned that it had a tendency to ride up. I spent a week in Montana bushwacking on horseback in 40 degree weather and was warm and cozy. The hood is a real lifesaver in the wind too! The fabric is super tough and saved me from being impaled on the many branches we crashed through.

I got the bue and it is just gorgeous. It's slightly shiney so it's not just a working jacket - you can dress it up too.

This is definitely a jacket for 50 degrees and below. My sister who lives in Los Angeles thinks it will be too warm for her. I live in San Francisco and it's perfect for the cold fog and windy days and nights!

Very Bulky

I expected to love this jacket. But sadly, I felt it was too bulky. And other reviewers were correct - it's short as well and often rides up because of the band around the bottom. I bought a Medium and I'm 5'6" 130 lbs. I returned this and bought The North Face Women's Vegas Vest instead which, although not a full jacket, is perfect for me and looks incredibly similar to the Gotham Down Jacket - just without sleeves and the front banding. If you're okay with a lot of bulk then the Gotham will be just fine for you. I felt very constricted.

Great Jacket!

I am 5'6 115 lbs. I typically wear a small in TNF, but after reading other reviews I ordered the chocolate color in both small and medium. I ended up keeping the medium because yes this jacket does run small. I love the jacket and the return process through BC was so easy! I'm very pleased.

cute but short, very short

This jacket, although cute in the picture, is waaaay too short. I'm 5'8" though, it might work for a shorter person --(I usually wear small, but after reading all the other reviews I got the medium size and it was still short, had to return it :(. It is also very puffy, specially on the sleeves. But the color is beautiful (I got the chocolate one, it is very rich) and the quality is superb, as it always is with Northface products

I adore this coat!

I adore this coat: the fit, color, construction - everything about this coat is fantastic! Other reviews lead me to order two sizes, and return one - which I did and recommend because BC's return policy is fantastic. Keep in mind this coat is the "bomber jacket" style so its naturally cropped, but it looks better on if you get a slightly snugger size. Ie., I wear a dress size 8, S/M tops and kept the size small coat - it fits perfectly and is very flattering. I can't wait to wear it again next winter!

It's a awsome jacket

I love the look it's a cute fitting jacket that keeps you warm and cute! I have now three jacket from the store very reasonable shipping and they always ship so fast would not buy my northface any where easle! I think that if you don't like a form fitting bombers jacket this one ant for you though it does come up a little shorter then most jackets but that's the style of the jacket! I love it : )

I love the coat but size off

After reading numerous reviews regarding the Gotham I decided that I would get a medium. I am petite 5'1, weigh 125 and have a pretty small chest. I read several reviews that stated that the coat runs pretty small and to order a size larger than what you usually wear. Many people listed their measurements and I thought that I should get a medium to make sure the coat fit right. The medium fits, however I think I would have preferred a small. it is kinda bulky in the stomach area (makes me feel like I look preggo) and the arms are kinda big. It still looks super cute but I think a small would have been perfect. I suppose the extra room will be good for when I have a sweater or sweatshirt on next winter. I probably should have exchanged it but decided not too because I didn't want to wait the extra time for return and then reshipping. I might suggest that someone try it on in the store nd then buy it online (unless you don't mind the return/exchange time).

Bulky Sleeves

My only problem with the jacket was that the sleeves were way too bulky and looked very disproportionate from the rest of the jacket. I ended up returning the jacket.

I'm 5"2, 110 lbs. and I bought a size small.
