The color I wanted was only available as a XS, so I purchased it. I should have picked another color and go with a S or M because it is a very constricting jacket. It definitely is slim-fit, but if you want to have layers underneath, then go a size up.

A lot of North Face jackets (Millenia, Dealio) I can wear a small or a medium. Truly needed the large to be able to zip over my chest wearing regular clothes- much less layering for long days out in the cold. Was a lifesaver to take to Quebec City in January when the average feel was -11. Great waterproof, windproof properties. Love that the hood and the faux fur are both removable. At home, I can wear a t-shirt and sweatpants underneath to walk the dog in the am and be perfectly toasty. If I could do anything, I'd add an extra set of front flap pockets- as I'm always carrying extra things and often shove my hands in the existing pockets.

My Favorite Winter Jacket!!!

True to size

I got a Medium in the Grey, I'm 5'5, 150 lbs with athletic build. I read some reviews and almost got a Large and SO thankful I didn't! I'm usually a medium in just about everything and this jacket fits amazing! Not restrictive for me, enough to wear a thick sweatshirt under with enough room to bend and move comfortably! I've gotten so many compliments on it I'm thinking of getting another one but in Black. I will say i don't have much "curve" to me and if your hips are larger than 40" I'd size up... The grey hides the North East salt amazingly! Best North Face purchase ever!

This coat is beautiful and seems very well made. I love the material and loved that it was not the typical puffer coat. Unfortunately, if you are shaped bigger on the bottom than on the top, it does not look right. You have to be equally proportioned for it to look good, in my opinion. I really wanted to love this coat. I ended up buying the NF Dealio, which is much more generous for full-bottomed gals.

This coat is awesome: I’m 5’2” and typically wear a 4/6. I purchased the medium coat to make sure I could get layers beneath, and it worked like a charm!

This is my second arctic parka. I had the older version and loved it, so I was glad to see that an update was available. Based on reviews here and the sizing on TNF’s site, I ordered up a size versus what I’d worn in the previous model. I’m glad I did because the shoulders in this coat are oddly narrow (and I have very narrow shoulders so this is not something I run into all that often). For me, this means that the shoulders fit but the waist isn’t as fitted as it appears to be in the photos here (I really, really wish there was a way to cinch it) and the bottom is a little wider than I’d expected. But it still looks good enough to keep it, it’s a great weight, I can wear it to work or to walk the dog and it feels appropriate, and based on my experience with the older model I expect it to hold up well. I tried it with a hat under the hood and don’t have any of the issues others have noted, but I think I might if I’d ordered the smaller size. One additional note: while Backcountry lists it as a slim fit (maybe because of the shoulder thing?), TNF considers it standard fit.

Love the coat, runs true to size. 150, 5'6 size medium. Fits perfect, little snug w big sweater underneath perfect w long sleeve. Downfall feathers coming out, shirt covered whenever I take the coat off. Looks beautiful but not a fan of feather and bottom zipper coming up.

I am usually a medium in almost everything. But north face jackets I've always been a medium. But when I ordered this, it was way too snug for me. It just fits me but zipping, was not easy. It was kinda tight around the shoulder blade and front like when you would reach down to pick up something. It was knee length for me. Im 5'1. But I must say, the employees when I do live chat have been AMAZING!! they make you feel comfortable

This is such an amazing parka! Its so chic and clean and the cinched waist is so flattering that it looks amazing even with layers beneath. The fur is detachable so if you prefer the looks of the coat witout it its an option. The 550 down and Wind resistant material can shield you from the bitter breeze this winter! 10/10

Based on the reviews, I wasn’t sure if I should go with a small or medium parka so I ordered both. The small fit a little bit tighter when I tried it on with a heavy sweatshirt underneath. The length was good but the sleeves and shoulders were tight. The medium I kept bc it was just most comfortable with a heavier sweater under. I’m in Chicago and winters get cold so It went right to my knees and the sleeves and shoulders were so much more comfortable.

I love this coat! I think it runs a little narrow in the shoulders - if you tend to be on the larger side of your size I would size up. I'm usually an XS, sized up to a S - it's a little roomie but perfect for extra layers. Definitely a great item to have if you live in the colder northern climates

I needed a heavier parka for Pennsylvania winters, and I found it! This is perfect for below 30 degree weather -- I tested that this weekend in Canada. It's a bit too warm for 30+ weather. I'd say it is regular fit, not slim, but with the length, movement is a bit restricted beyond walking/sitting. Would definitely recommend for a great, versatile winter parka.

This coat is perfect for any occasion. Weather I'm at the dog park or wanting to dress up and hit the town. I can always relay on this coat to keep me warm! It says its a slim fit, but i believe its a regular fit.

This parka is awesome! It is modern and sleek as opposed to the fluffy looking kind of parkas. The only issue I had was jumping into my husbands Tacoma with is zipped up, I had to pull it up to take a big step up, it is snug in the body so if you like space you would need to size up on this baby.

I freaking LOVE this jacket!!!! It is super warm, stylish, and fits awesome! The fit is more flattering for a female waist, and I also love that the hood is removable. I also love that the main zipper has a double zipper system so that I can sit sit in my car in my parka and not feel too smooshed and not able to move my legs around. 10/10 would recommend to any fly lady looking for a rad parka for casual wear and light activities, such as dog walks or hiking. I would not personally want to ski or board in this jacket however... just not the right style for that. (I bought a medium in the black and I feel that it fits TRUE to size!)
