Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 2"
Weight: 130 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium & Small

I bought this jacket a couple of weeks ago and couldn't be happier; it is gorgeous. The color is great and matches with lots of other winter clothing I already own. I get so many compliments on it. It feels like wearing a cozy down blanket and is perfect for those of us that are always freezing. It is puffy without that "Michelin man" look. I bought a medium and it fits great; I am 5'2", 130 lbs and 34DD for reference. The jacket hits right about my knee; the sleeves I've found are the perfect length for me, although I don't have very long arms. The width across my upper back is comfortable in the medium; a couple of other reviews I'd read complained of this being an issue; I am quite petite from shoulder-to-shoulder and after trying on a small returned it for this same reason. It is very warm and perfect for the PNW winters we experience where I live; especially because it snows fiercely here and waterproofing is a necessity; I have not gotten wet once while wearing this out in light/medium intermittent rain. The hood is huge and will definitely aid in keeping the elements off your noggin (while also impairing your peripheral vision); my favorite part of the hood is that not only is it entirely removable, but the fur along the edge is removable as well making the jacket quite versatile. The fleece lining on the interior as well as on the inside of the sleeves (only where your wrists sit) is cozy and appreciated. The fleece lined pockets are deep enough for me to get my entire hand into and are also a favorite of this jacket. The zipper is metal and seems well-made; at first I had a little trouble with it but figured it out before long. The bottom does bell out a bit but not terribly. Mostly the only complaint I have is that a little wind does end up chilling my upper legs. I feel as if I could have gotten the small and this wouldn't have been a problem, but with sacrifices as it didn't fit as well as the medium. Overall I am delighted with my purchase; I would, without a doubt, recommend this jacket to anyone that doesn't want to sacrifice fashion for function AND wants to stay warm!
