Kate C.wrote a review of Marmot Montreaux Down Coat - Women's on December 30, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small
I have several marmot items and typically wear a medium. Bought this to replace an LL Bean coat that had busted at the seams. Wanted something warm, long and with a hood. This fit the bill! It is so cozy and the fleece lined neck and cuffs are incredibly soft. I purchased the navy and it was beautiful.
I found this jacket to be too tight at my chest though, and could barely zip it with a sweater under it. I am a solid medium and wear it in almost all ranges- I was disappointed that this was small. I had seen the reviews and folks said it ran small and I figured it’d be fine- I was wrong! Ended up purchasing the next size up (large) and am waiting to see how it goes.
Update: Got the medium in to try on and was swimming in it. Disappointed because this is a beautiful coat that seemed like it would keep me warm in the New England winters. Back to the drawing board for me, as I will now be returning both. Medium was closer to fitting, and if you have a smaller chest than I do, you should be fine!
