Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 2"
Weight: 115 lbs
Size Purchased: Small

This coat is nicely designed and well made, but the reason I'm not giving five stars is that it is only good for temperatures above 39 degrees - so not really a winter coat, but more of a transitional season coat. The good things: The shape is tapered, it is lightweight and a good shade of black, the pockets are a reasonable depth, and it has no down, so feathers coming out is a non-issue (thankfully). Also there is no distracting hardware - the zipper is blended, and the pockets are open. The issue is that it simply isn't warm enough for temps in the mid-30s or lower. I kept it because here in NYC we have a lot of days in the upper 30s-40s range, and the fact it doesn't shed is an advantage, but I've since bought another coat for cold winter weather, since this one will be insufficient for that.

I wanted to feel this coat is "the one" but unfortunately, that was not to be. I'm 5'2" and about 115 lbs and the coat had a strange fit: very big in the shoulders, narrowing down to snug/form-fitted in the hips - a triangle shape. The sleeves were big and bulky, and the color was substantially lighter than in the photo, a grey of sorts; and the coat is more of a parka (and I'm short!), it did not extend to above the knee, but was more like a mid-thigh length which is different from how it is presented. After I tried it on, I returned it. In terms of function, it did seem very warm and well made.

I really liked the style of this coat and thought the performance would be decent but unfortunately, the coat did not fit and had to be returned. I'm 5'2" and about 115 lbs - can squeeze into some XS coats but they are too tight, so was banking on the S as a good fit. This coat was extremely snug in the hips and thighs - cut very narrow there - and wider on top. Seemed disproportionate in its dimensions, but going by the other reviews, other women are happy with it. The material, styling and overall look are very attractive, so was sorry it had to be returned. It has a "city-chic" look, very streamlined and fitted, which I really like.
