casey jillsonwrote a review of Arc'teryx Nuri Down Coat - Women's on February 22, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
I saw this coat on a friend and determined it was one of the most flattering thigh length coats. The colors are really beautiful; although I purchased the black. The "trash bag" look isn't a good description; it is what you expect. There's nothing matte about the finish but it's not as shiny as some i've seen.
I'm 5'5" 135lbs. i'm a 36B with an athletic build. I usually order a small outer layer and small ski pant from Arc'teryx paired with size medium mid layers and base layers. I was going back and forth between a small and medium in this particular style for a while. I fit into a small but it was pretty tight across the shoulders and chest, even my ribcage. The medium seemed to be too wide, although if I wanted to layer underneath this coat I would need a medium, definitely. I ended up purchasing a small with the thought that I would not need to have even a light sweater on; I was wrong. The coat is very form fitting and very slimming for being a down coat. It's warm enough for my use which is commuting and "around town" but if I needed to be able to layer underneath, it would be too snug. The sleeves for the small were the right length. In retrospect I might have tried medium on again with a sweater... Either way I have worn the Nuri coat most days this winter. It's formed a bit to my figure as well, just perfectly.
