Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
I'm a 8 on the bottom and a 10 on top and a size medium nails it. Yes the black sleeves could be long. BUT they rouche well under the big sleeve without feeling bulky. The length is perfect. I've worn this in 4 degrees temp and a -10 windchill here in Chicago and I couldn't complain of the cold. Two things to note is that the neck is high. I'll only use it in extreme temps and a nose chin cover to keep my face warm. The other item is the zipper. You will hear a little 'click' when it's fully in. It's a firm package and not poorly made. So the zipper isn't going to just slip in like most coat zippers. The reverse zipper is great for sitting walking up/down a lot of stairs and driving in the car. It's very easy to go up and down. The inside packets are great. Even the Velcro pocket is secure. That Velcro won't be opening up on its own. This is some serious Velcro holing power going on. It's great for my phone and lip balm. The zipper is awesome for a small wallet and keys. The pockets may seem high. But once you wear the jacket you'll find them to be in a good location. Lastly, I don't feel like the Michelin man wearing this parka. It's cut perfect for such a coat. But this coat. Yes it's expensive. But I spent $250 on a coat last year and it doesn't hold a candle to this. Don't waste your money. You won't need to buy another winter coat. Unless you gain/lose weight. Then you won't have a problem selling the one that no longer fits. I waited 5 months to get this coat (numerous sites and emails to vendors). It's a win-win. BUY THIS COAT.
