I like this coat. It is light weight, but incredibly warm. I ordered xl, because I am 6 feet tall, my weight is around 168lbs. The coat is a little big around my waist and hips, but the shoulders and chest is right on. I have long arms, and the sleeves of this coat are nice and long. I have received several compliments so far. I would buy it again.
Originally bought the medium, which would be a size up for me, as per the size chart this coat runs small. I liked it, it was comfortable, but felt that it might be a tight zip if I had to put a heavy sweater or fleece underneath it. So returned the medium and got a large. Still doesn't look too puffy, but it has more room and will be ok with a layer underneath it. I haven't worn it in really cold weather yet, but it certainly does protect against the wind. The hood is a plus, though it would have to be "cinched" with a scarf, which I intend to wear anyway. Two way zipper is good. "Biinding" at end of sleeves and on bottom is only what looks like thin ribbon; no elastic on cuffs. Pockets are deep enough for most items, and zip easily. A plus for me is that I can pack it small in my suitcase, and take it out easily when I travel to the North East in December. (I live in Southern New Mexico, and so far it has not been cold enough to wear this). Fabric has a bit of shine to it. I bought the black.
